Ubuntu in VPS Servers

Ubuntu is available with our VPS web hosting plans and you can buy a VPS running it in less than 60 minutes. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are available, so that you will be able to select the one which you need when the software that you wish to run on your server has particular system requirements in this regard. You can also select if your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be installed with no Control Panel, in which case you will have full root access and you can install anything through a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on it, in which case you will have a web interface and all the required web server, MySQL, FTP, mail server, etc. software is pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more limited, but this type of installation is more suitable for users with less experience. We will also keep your Ubuntu up-to-date regularly when you add the Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do so during the VPS order process or at any later time through your billing Control Panel.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

You're able to obtain Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server packages, due to the fact that we supply 32-bit and 64-bit versions of this OS. In this way, you can choose the more appropriate of the two, based on the type of apps that you'd like to set up and run and on the system requirements they have regarding the OS. You will have root-level access to the server, which gives you full control of the software setting. We'll install only the Apache web server software, therefore you are able to add anything else you'll need, even if it's not related directly to sites, such as a VOIP server, for instance. You can control everything using a console, yet if you would like, you may also set up a hosting Control Panel, as long as it supports Ubuntu. When you order our optional Managed Services bundle, we will keep your Operating System up-to-date weekly and will ensure that you have the most up-to-date software packages for a stable and secure server environment.
