Ubuntu in VPS Servers

When you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you'll be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS with each VPS server package that we supply and everything is set up within 1 hour, which means that you'll be able to start using the VPS without delay. We supply two separate editions since some programs have specific requirements in order to work effectively. You will be able to manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in two ways - if you order it with our custom-built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll receive a web interface and all the software that's required for your sites will be pre-installed; while in case you order it without any Control Panel, you'll get only the Operating System and the Apache web server software, so you're able to install additional software using Secure Shell. When you choose to include our Managed Services upgrade either during the registration process or at any later time, our administrators will keep an eye on your hosting server and will update Ubuntu routinely.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

Ubuntu is one of the OS options that you can find on our registration page in case you want to get one of our dedicated web hosting plans. We'll install the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition, to match the system requirements of the apps that you want to install on the server. You can also select the software which will run on your machine, as we will set up only the Apache web server software, so all else can be customized software of your choice. You will be able to install the latter without any problems from a Secure Shell console, because you will receive root-level access and you will have full control over your hosting server. You are free to install a web hosting Control Panel too and control some things from a graphical interface, as long as it can work on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things easier, we also offer a Managed Services upgrade, which, among other things, features OS updates.
