Ubuntu is a preferred desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting quite popular too. The main reason is that the OS is amazingly light and it can function on almost any kind of hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least five years, which warrants that you will have a secure and dependable software environment on your server all of the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities around the world, so if you experience any difficulty or have any kind of question, you'll find numerous resources on the Internet. One of the main benefits of this OS is the fact that it has numerous software packages which can be freely modified in accordance with your needs and the requirements of the applications which you need to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees at all. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their code isn't accessible, which means that it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Web Hosting
Ubuntu is available with all our VPS web hosting services and you can get a VPS running it in just one hour. 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the OS are available, so that you can select the one which you need if the software that you would like to run on the website hosting server has particular system requirements regarding this. You may also select whether your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be installed without a Control Panel, in which case you'll have full root access and you will be able to set up anything using a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on it, in which case you will have an online interface and all needed web server, MySQL, FTP, electronic mail server, etc. software is 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.

You will be able to do this throughout the VPS order process or at any later time using your billing Control Panel.
