Ubuntu in VPS Servers
When you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you can get the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the Operating System with each and every VPS server
package that we offer and everything is set up within an hour, therefore you're able to start using the VPS right away. We provide two separate editions since some programs have specific requirements so as to work properly. You will be able to manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in two ways - if you order it with our custom-made Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll get a world wide web interface and all the software which is necessary for your websites will be pre-installed; whereas if you order it with no Control Panel, you will receive only the Operating System and the Apache web server software, so that you are able to install additional software through Secure Shell. If you choose to add the Managed Services upgrade either throughout the signup process or at any later time, our admins will keep track of your hosting server and will upgrade Ubuntu routinely.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
You'll be able to get Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server
packages, as we provide 32-bit and 64-bit releases of this Operating System. In this way, you will be able to select the more appropriate of them, based on the type of apps that you need to set up and run and on the system requirements they have about the Operating System. You'll have root-level access to the server, which will provide you with full control of the software setting. We will set up only the Apache web server software, therefore you're able to add anything else you'll need, even if it's not related directly to Internet sites, such as a VOIP server, for example. You will be able to manage everything from a console, however if you would like, you may also install a hosting Control Panel, provided that it supports Ubuntu. When you order the optional Managed Services bundle, we'll maintain your OS up-to-date every week and will ensure that you have the most recent software packages for a well-balanced and secure server environment.
