Discover more about Ubuntu, how this small Linux distro has taken the world by storm and why it’s now so famous.
Ubuntu is among the most popular Linux releases for desktop machines, but the Operating System also has a server version, which has been gaining popularity lately. Ubuntu is very quick and supports numerous hardware components, so it can function on virtually every server not using an excessive amount of system resources. The Operating System is widely known as really reliable and secure, not to mention that due to its popularity, you will find lots of sources online with information about any question or problem that you may have. The Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for at least 5 years, so you're able to get security patches without worrying about softwareproblems over time. As Ubuntu is absolutely free to use, you can modify both its core and the thousands of additional software packages which you can download and set up in any way you see fit, with no restrictions and without paying any license fees. In this way, you'll receive a rapid, stable and powerful hosting service and pay just the cost of the server.

You can also select whether the VPS should come with the Hepsia Control Panel or with no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you will receive everything you'll need pre-installed - MySQL, electronic mail server, FTP, etc. software, and you are able to do everything by using your Internet browser, however the root access will be restricted; whereas in the second case, you'll receive Ubuntu and the Apache server software only, which means that you will be able to install anything freely thanks to the full root access that you'll be given, however the server management tasks can be performed through a console. Our system administrators will monitor your VPS and update the Ubuntu installation on a weekly basis when you add the additional Managed Services package that we offer.
