Ubuntu in VPS Hosting

We provide Ubuntu with all our Linux VPS hosting and depending on what requirements your web apps have, you can pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS with only a few mouse clicks throughout the order process. If you get your server devoid of web hosting Control Panel, the only piece of software that will be set up on top of Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, which means that you can use a console in order to access the hosting server and to build a software environment of your choice. When you acquire your server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll have a web interface with which you're able to control almost everything as quickly as you manage a regular 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 experience, or in case you do not like to waste time on VPS management procedures, you'll be able to reap the benefits of our Managed Services upgrade, which features once a week Ubuntu Operating System updates.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting

We provide Ubuntu with our dedicated server plans and if you need this OS, you're able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition with just a click on the order page. We provide two editions, so as to make sure that the server will match the requirements of the software that you wish to install. The full root access to your server allows you to install various other software, since the only pre-installed app is the Apache web server. You are able to access the server securely from a console, yet if you like better to use a world wide web interface, you are free to set up any kind of Control Panel that can function on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you'd like to focus your efforts on the content and not on server maintenance tasks, you can add our Managed Services upgrade and we will handle various tasks for you, including weekly OS updates.
