Ubuntu is among the most widespread Linux distributions for desktop computers, yet the OS also has a server edition, that has been gaining in popularity lately. Ubuntu is very fast and supports a number of hardware components, so it can run on virtually every machine not using a lot of resources. The Operating System is regarded as being really reliable and secure, not to mention that 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 at least five years, so you can get security patches without having to worry about softwareissues in the long run. Due to the fact that Ubuntu is free to use, you are able to modify both its core as well as the thousands of additional software packages which you can download and install in any way you find fit, without any limitations and without any license fees. This way, you will obtain an effective, secure and powerful web hosting service and pay just the cost of the server.

You may also select if your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be set up without a 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 set up on it, in which case you will have a world wide web interface and all necessary web server, MySQL, FTP, electronic mail server, etcetera. software will be pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more limited, but such a setup is more suitable for users with less experience. We will also maintain your Ubuntu up-to-date on a regular basis when you add the Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do so during the VPS order process or at any later time through your billing Control Panel.
