Ubuntu is a well known desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server version is getting very popular too. The main reason is that the operating system is really light and it will run on almost any kind of hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least 5 years, which warrants that you will have a risk-free and stable software environment on your web hosting server all the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities in the world, so if you experience any problem or have any question, you'll discover a number of resources on the Internet. Among the major benefits of this OS is that it includes numerous software packages which can be easily adjusted in accordance with your needs and the requirements of the apps that you'd like to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees at all. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code is not accessible, therefore it can't be changed.

We are aware of the fact that some programs have specific requirements in terms of the OS they are set up on, and you will be able to choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of Ubuntu. In addition, you can choose if your VPS should feature our Hepsia Control Panel or no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you'll get everything you need pre-installed - MySQL, e-mail server, FTP, etc. software, and you can make everything through your online browser, however the root access will be limited; whereas in the second case, you will get Ubuntu and the Apache server software only, which means that you are able to install anything freely due to the full root access that you will be given, yet the server management tasks can be performed using a console. Our sysadmins can watch your VPS and upgrade the Ubuntu installation on a weekly basis if you add the optional Managed Services package that we offer.
