Ubuntu in VPS Hosting

When you need an Ubuntu-powered server, you will be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS with each and every virtual private server plan that we supply and everything will be set up within 1 hour, so you'll be able to start using your VPS without delay. We supply two separate versions because some pieces of software have specific requirements to work efficiently. You will be able to control an Ubuntu-powered VPS in two ways - when you order it with our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll get an online interface and all the software that is required for your web sites will be pre-installed; while when you order it without any Control Panel, you'll get just the OS and the Apache web server software, so that you're able to set up other software through Secure Shell. If you choose to add our Managed Services upgrade either throughout the registration process or at any later time, our administrators will keep close track of your server and will update Ubuntu regularly.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting

Ubuntu is among the Operating System options which you will find on our order page when you choose to obtain one of our Linux dedicated web hosting. We'll install the 32-bit or the 64-bit version, to match the system requirements of the applications which you wish to set up on the server. You may also choose the software that will operate on your machine, since we will set up only the Apache web server software, so all else can be customized software of your choice. You're able to set up the latter without any problems by using a Secure Shell console, because you will get root-level access and you'll have full control over the hosting server. You are free to install a hosting Control Panel as well and manage some things via a graphical interface, as long as it can function on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things easier for you, we also offer a Managed Services upgrade, which, among other things, includes Operating System upgrades.
