Ubuntu in VPS Servers

We provide Ubuntu with our VPS plans and based on what system requirements your web applications have, you're able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the Operating System with only a couple of mouse clicks during the registration process. If you get your server with no hosting Control Panel, the only piece of software that will be set up in addition to Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, so you will be able to use a console in order to access the hosting server and to create a software environment of your liking. If you obtain your server with our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you'll have a world wide web interface with which you can control almost everything just as easily as you manage a standard shared account and all the vital MySQL, FTP and email server software are pre-installed, yet the root access to the server is limited. If you do not have much experience, or if you don't want to waste time on VPS control procedures, you are able to reap the benefits of our Managed Services upgrade, which includes every week Ubuntu Operating System upgrades.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

Ubuntu is one of the Operating System options which you'll find on our registration page when you decide to get one of our dedicated web hosting plans. We'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit release, so as to satisfy the system requirements of the applications that you would like to install on the server. You can also select the software which will operate on your machine, as we will set up only the Apache web server software, so everything else can be tailor-made software of your liking. You will be able to set up the latter without problems using a Secure Shell console, since you will receive root-level access and you'll get full control over your hosting server. You are free to set up a website hosting Control Panel as well and manage some things through a graphical interface, as long as it can function on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things easier for you, we also provide a Managed Services upgrade, which, among other things, features Operating System upgrades.
