Ubuntu in VPS Hosting
If you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you will be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the Operating System with each virtual private server plan that we offer and everything will be set up within an hour, so you'll be able to start using your VPS right away. We provide two separate editions because certain programs have certain requirements to operate efficiently. You can manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in 2 ways - if you order it with our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will receive a world wide web interface and all the software that's required for your web sites will be pre-installed; whereas in case you order it with no Control Panel, you'll receive only the OS and the Apache web server software, so you're able to install other software using Secure Shell. If you decide to include our Managed Services upgrade either throughout the signup process or at any later time, our admins will keep track of your server and will update Ubuntu regularly.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting
Ubuntu is one of the OS options that you'll find on our order page if you decide to get one of our dedicated web hosting. We can install the 32-bit or the 64-bit release, so as to satisfy the system requirements of the apps which you'd like to set up on the server. You can also select the software which will run on your machine, since we will set up only the Apache web server software, so all else can be custom-made software of your liking. You're able to set up the latter without problems from a Secure Shell console, because you'll have root-level access and you'll have full control of the hosting server. You can set up a website hosting Control Panel too and manage some things from a graphical interface, as long as it can function on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things simpler for you, we also supply a Managed Services upgrade, which, among other things, features OS upgrades.
