Ubuntu in VPS Hosting
When you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you are able to get the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS with each virtual private server package that we offer and everything is set up within one hour, which means that you'll be able to start using your VPS right away. We offer two different versions since certain pieces of software have specific requirements to work properly. You can manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in 2 ways - when you order it with our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll get a web interface and all the software that is necessary for your websites will be pre-installed; whereas in case you order it without any Control Panel, you'll get only the OS and the Apache web server software, so you'll be able to install additional software using Secure Shell. When you choose to include our Managed Services upgrade either throughout the signup process or at any later time, our admins will monitor your server and will update Ubuntu routinely.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting
We supply Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server packages and if you need this OS, you're able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit version with just a click on the order page. We offer two editions, in order to guarantee that the hosting server meets the requirements of the software that you want to install. The full root admission to the server will help you install any other software, since the only pre-installed application will be the Apache web server. You are able to access the server safely from a console, however in case you would like to use a web interface, you can set up any kind of Control Panel which can function on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you wish to focus your efforts on the content and not on server maintenance tasks, you're able to add the Managed Services upgrade and we will handle various tasks for you, among them regular OS updates.
