Ubuntu is a well-liked desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server release is getting really popular too. The reason is the fact that the operating system is extremely light and it'll run on almost any hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which guarantees that you should have a protected and dependable software environment on your website hosting server all the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities worldwide, which means that if you experience any problem or have any kind of question, you'll find lots of resources online. One of the major advantages of this OS is that it has a large number of software packages which can be freely customized according to your needs and / or the needs of the apps which you need to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees any time. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their program code isn't accessible, which means that it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Web Hosting

Ubuntu is available with all of our Linux VPS web hosting packages and you can get a VPS running it in just sixty minutes. 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the OS are available, so you can pick the one that you need if the software that you wish to run on your hosting server has specific system requirements in this regard. You can also select whether your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be set up with no Control Panel, in which case you will have full root access and you can set up anything using a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on it, in which case you'll have a web interface and all needed web server, MySQL, FTP, mail server, etc. software is 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.
