Ubuntu is a popular desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server edition is getting pretty popular too. The main reason is that the operating system is really light and it can run on almost any hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least five years, which guarantees that you will have a secure and dependable software environment on your web hosting server at all times. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities worldwide, so if you experience any kind of problem or have any question, you will find lots of resources online. One of the main advantages of this Operating System is that it comes with numerous software packages which can be freely adjusted according to your needs as well as the needs of the apps that you would like to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees any time. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their program code is not accessible, therefore it can't be changed.

Ubuntu is available with all our Linux VPS web hosting packages and you can get a VPS running it in just an hour. 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the OS are available, which means that you will be able to select the one which you need if the software that you wish to run on the hosting server has specific system requirements in this regard. You may also select if your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be set up with no Control Panel, in which case you'll 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 the needed web server, MySQL, FTP, e-mail server, etcetera. 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.
