Ubuntu is a preferred desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server release is getting really popular as well. The main reason is that the operating system is really light and it can function on almost any kind of hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which guarantees that you should have a secure and stable software environment on your website hosting server all of the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities globally, so if you experience any problem or have any question, you'll discover a number of resources on the Internet. One of the main benefits of this Operating System is that it has a large number of software packages which can be easily customized in accordance with your needs and the needs of the applications which you'd like to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees any time. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their code isn't accessible, which means that it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Web Hosting
With any of our Linux VPS web hosting, you'll be able to decide on the Ubuntu Operating System on the order page. We recognize the fact that some programs have certain requirements with regard to the OS they're set up on, which means that you can select from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of Ubuntu. You can also choose if your VPS should come with our Hepsia Control Panel or no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you'll get everything you will need pre-installed - MySQL, electronic mail server, FTP, etc. software, and you're able to make everything by using your web browser, however the root access will be restricted; while in the second case, you will receive Ubuntu plus the Apache server software only, which means that you will be able to set up anything freely thanks to the full root access that you will be given, yet the server management tasks are performed using a console. Our administrators will monitor your VPS and update the Ubuntu installation on a weekly basis when you add the additional Managed Services bundle which we offer.

The full root admission to the server will allow you to set up any other software, because the only pre-installed application will be the Apache web server.
