Ubuntu in VPS Servers

We provide Ubuntu with our VPS servers and depending on what system requirements your web applications have, you are able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS with just a couple of mouse clicks during the registration process. If you get your server with no hosting Control Panel, the sole software that will be set up in addition to Ubuntu will be the Apache web server software, which means that you are able to use a console in order to access the hosting server and to create a software environment of your choice. If you acquire your server with our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll have a world wide web interface with which you can manage almost everything just as easily as you control an ordinary shared account and all of the necessary MySQL, FTP and e-mail server software are pre-installed, but the root access to the server is limited. When you don't have a lot of experience, or in case you do not wish to waste time on VPS supervision procedures, you are able to take advantage of our Managed Services upgrade, that includes once a week Ubuntu Operating System updates.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

You'll be able to get Ubuntu with our dedicated server packages, because we provide 32-bit and 64-bit versions of this OS. In this way, you'll be able to select the more appropriate of them, based on the type of applications which you would like to install and run and on the system requirements they have regarding the OS. You'll have root-level access to the server, which provides you with full control over the software setting. We will install just the Apache web server software, so you will be able to add anything else you'll need, even when it is not related directly to websites, such as a VOIP server, for example. You're able to manage everything through a console, yet if you would like, you can also install a hosting Control Panel, as long as it supports Ubuntu. If you order our optional Managed Services bundle, we'll keep your Operating System up-to-date weekly and will make sure that you have the most up-to-date software packages for a reliable and secure server environment.
