Ubuntu is a popular desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server version is getting very popular too. The reason is that the OS is very light and it can run on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which guarantees that you should have a secure and stable software environment on your hosting server at all times. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities in the world, which means that if you experience any issue or have any kind of question, you will find numerous resources online. Among the major advantages of this OS is that it contains tens of thousands of software packages which can be freely adjusted according to your needs as well as the needs of the apps which you'd like to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees at all. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their code isn't accessible, thus it cannot be changed.

Also, you can choose if the VPS should feature 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 will be able to make everything through your web browser, yet the root access will be limited; while in the second case, you'll receive Ubuntu plus the Apache server software only, so that you will be able to set up anything freely due to the full root access that you will be given, however the server management tasks will be done through a console. Our sysadmins will watch your VPS and update the Ubuntu installation on a weekly basis when you add the optional Managed Services bundle which we offer.
