Ubuntu in VPS Servers
If you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you're able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the Operating System with each VPS server package that we supply and everything will be set up within an hour, so you are able to start using the VPS right away. We provide two separate editions because certain programs have specific requirements so as to function properly. You'll be able to control an Ubuntu-powered VPS in two ways - if you order it with our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll receive a world wide web interface and the software which is required for your sites will be pre-installed; whereas in case you order it devoid of Control Panel, you will receive just the Operating System and the Apache web server software, so you will be able to install other software through Secure Shell. When you decide to include our Managed Services upgrade either during the registration process or at any later time, our admins will monitor your server and will upgrade Ubuntu on a regular basis.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
Ubuntu is among the Operating System options that you will find on our order page if you want to acquire one of our dedicated servers. We'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit version, so as to satisfy the system requirements of the apps which you need to install on the server. You can also choose the software that will operate on your machine, as we will set up only the Apache web server software, so everything else can be custom software of your choice. You can set up the latter without problems from a Secure Shell console, because you'll get root-level access and you'll get full control over your server. You are free to set up a website hosting Control Panel too and manage some things via a graphical interface, as long as it can function on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things simpler, we also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that, among other things, features Operating System upgrades.
