Ubuntu in VPS Servers
If you need an Ubuntu-powered server, you are able to get the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS with each and every VPS server package that we supply and everything will be set up within 1 hour, which means that you can start using the VPS without delay. We offer two different versions because certain pieces of software have certain requirements so as to operate efficiently. You are able to manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in two ways - when you order it with our in-house made Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll receive a web interface and the software that is necessary for your web sites will be pre-installed; while when you order it without any Control Panel, you will receive just the OS and the Apache web server software, which means that you're able to set up additional software using Secure Shell. When you decide to add the Managed Services upgrade either throughout the signup process or at any later time, our administrators will keep close track of your hosting server and will upgrade Ubuntu on a regular basis.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
Ubuntu is among the OS options which you can find on our order page in case you choose to obtain one of our dedicated service. We will set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition, in order to satisfy the system requirements of the apps which you want to install on the server. You can also select the software that will operate on your machine, because we will set up only the Apache web server software, so all else can be tailor-made software of your choice. You'll be able to set up the latter without problems using a Secure Shell console, because you will receive root-level access and you will have full control over the hosting server. You can install a hosting Control Panel as well and manage some things from a graphical interface, as long as it can run on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things easier for you, we also supply a Managed Services upgrade, which, among other things, includes Operating System updates.
