Ubuntu is one of the most preferred Linux editions for desktop computers, but the Operating System also has a server edition, that has been gaining in popularity recently. Ubuntu is really quick and supports a number of hardware components, so it can run on virtually any kind of computer without consuming a lot of system resources. The Operating System is regarded as being pretty reliable and secure, plus because of its popularity, you will find many different sources online with information about any question or problem that you might have. The Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of five years, so you are able to get security patches without worrying about softwareissues over time. Due to the fact that Ubuntu is totally free to use, you are able to customize both its core and the thousands of additional software packages that you can download and set up in any way you see fit, devoid of restrictions and without having to pay any license fees. This way, you can receive an effective, secure and powerful hosting service and pay only the cost of the server.
Ubuntu in VPS

You can also select if your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be installed without a Control Panel, in which case you will have full root access and you will be able to set up anything through a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on it, in which case you'll have a web interface and all of the required web server, MySQL, FTP, e-mail server, etcetera. software will be pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more limited, but this type of setup is more efficient for users with less experience. We will also maintain your Ubuntu up-to-date regularly when you add our Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do this during the VPS order process or at any later time using your billing Control Panel.
