Ubuntu is a well known desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server edition is getting pretty popular too. The reason is the fact that the OS is extremely light and it'll run on almost any kind of hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for a minimum of five years, which guarantees that you will have a secure and stable software environment on your hosting server all of the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities on the planet, which means that if you experience any problem or have any question, you'll discover a number of resources on the net. Among the key benefits of this OS is the fact that it includes numerous software packages which can be easily customized according to your needs and / or the requirements of the apps which you intend to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any license fees any time. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their code isn't accessible, thus it can't be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

You can also select whether your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be set up with no Control Panel, in which case you'll have full root access and you will be able to install anything using a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on it, in which case you'll have an online interface and all required web server, MySQL, FTP, mail server, etc. software is pre-installed.
