Ubuntu in VPS Hosting

When you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you are able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS with each virtual private server package that we supply and everything will be set up within 1 hour, so you'll be able to start using your VPS right away. We supply two separate versions because some pieces of software have specific requirements to function efficiently. You are able to manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in 2 ways - if you order it with our custom-made Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will get an online interface and the software which is required for your web sites will be pre-installed; whereas if you order it with no Control Panel, you will get only the Operating System and the Apache web server software, which means that you will be able to set up additional software through Secure Shell. If you choose to add the Managed Services upgrade either during the registration process or at any later time, our admins will keep an eye on your hosting server and will update Ubuntu on a regular basis.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting

Ubuntu is among the Operating System options which you will find on our registration page in case you choose to acquire one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages. We will install the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition, in order to meet the system requirements of the applications that you'd like to install on the server. You can also choose the software which will operate on your machine, because we will install only the Apache web server software, so everything else can be custom software of your liking. You will be able to install the latter without problems using a Secure Shell console, since you'll have root-level access and you will get full control over your hosting server. You are free to install a website hosting Control Panel as well and manage some things through a graphical interface, as long as it can function on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things easier, we also supply a Managed Services upgrade, which, among other things, comes with OS updates.
