Ubuntu in VPS
We offer Ubuntu with our Linux VPS packages and based on what requirements your web applications have, you're able to get the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the Operating System with only a couple of mouse clicks throughout the registration process. If you get your server without a website hosting Control Panel, the sole software that will be set up in addition to Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, therefore you can use a console to access the hosting server and to set up a software environment that you choose. When you get your server with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll have a web interface with which you can control almost everything as quickly as you control an ordinary shared account and all the necessary MySQL, FTP and e-mail server software will be pre-installed, but the root access to your server will be restricted. When you don't have much experience, or if you don't like to waste time on VPS supervision procedures, you can take advantage of our Managed Services upgrade, that includes weekly Ubuntu Operating System updates.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Hosting
You'll be able to acquire Ubuntu with our dedicated server packages, considering that we provide 32-bit and 64-bit editions of this OS. In this way, you'll be able to choose the more appropriate of them, depending on the type of apps which you would like to set up and run and on the system requirements they have about the Operating System. You'll have root-level access to the server, which gives you full control over the software environment. We will set up just the Apache web server software, therefore you will be able to add anything else you will need, even if it is not related directly to websites, such as a VOIP server, for example. You'll be able to control everything through a console, however if you want, you may also set up a website hosting Control Panel, provided that it's compatible with Ubuntu. In case you order our optional Managed Services bundle, we'll maintain your OS up-to-date every week and will make sure that you have the most recent software packages for a stable and secure server environment.
