Ubuntu is a well known desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server release is getting quite popular as well. The main reason is the fact that the OS is very light and it can run on almost any kind of hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least five years, which warrants that you should have a risk-free and stable software environment on your website hosting server all of the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities worldwide, so if you experience any kind of problem or have any question, you will discover numerous resources on the Internet. Among the main benefits of this OS is the fact that it contains a large number of software packages which can be easily changed in accordance with your needs and / or the needs of the applications that you wish to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees any time. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their program code is not accessible, therefore it can't be changed.

You can also select whether your VPS should come with the Hepsia Control Panel or with no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you'll have everything you need pre-installed - MySQL, electronic mail server, FTP, etcetera. software, and you can do everything via your web browser, however the root access will be restricted; whereas in the second case, you will get Ubuntu plus the Apache server software only, so that you will be able to install anything freely because of the full root access that you will be given, but the server management tasks will be done through a console.
