Ubuntu in VPS Servers

When you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you are able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS with each and every VPS server package that we supply and everything is set up within 1 hour, which means that you're able to start using the VPS without delay. We supply two separate versions since some programs have specific requirements in order to operate properly. You're able to control an Ubuntu-powered VPS in 2 ways - when you order it with our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll receive an online interface and the software which is required for your Internet sites will be pre-installed; while if you order it without any Control Panel, you'll receive just the Operating System and the Apache web server software, which means that you'll be able to install additional software using Secure Shell. When you choose to add the Managed Services upgrade either during the registration process or at any later time, our administrators will monitor your hosting server and will update Ubuntu on a regular basis.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

Ubuntu is among the OS options which you can find on our order page in case you decide to acquire one of our Linux dedicated servers. We will install the 32-bit or the 64-bit release, in order to meet the system requirements of the apps that you wish to set up on the server. You can also choose the software that will operate on your machine, as we will set up only the Apache web server software, so the rest can be custom software of your liking. You're able to install the latter without any problems through a Secure Shell console, because you'll receive root-level access and you will get full control of the hosting server. You can install a website hosting Control Panel as well and control some things from 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, that, among other things, includes Operating System updates.
