Ubuntu is a popular desktop Operating System, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server version is getting pretty popular as well. The reason is that the OS is extremely light and it'll run on almost any kind of hardware without issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least 5 years, which guarantees that you should have a safe and dependable software environment on your server all the time. Furthermore, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities on the planet, so if you experience any difficulty or have any kind of question, you will find plenty of resources on the net. One of the main benefits of this Operating System is the fact that it contains tens of thousands of software packages which can be freely customized in accordance with your needs and the requirements of the apps that you'd like to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees at all. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code is not accessible, therefore it can't be changed.

You can also select if your VPS should come with the Hepsia Control Panel or no Control Panel at all.
