Ubuntu in VPS Hosting

When you need an Ubuntu-powered server, you are able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the Operating System with each and every virtual private server package that we provide and everything is set up within 1 hour, so you can start using the VPS right away. We offer two separate editions due to the fact that some programs have particular requirements to work effectively. You are able to control an Ubuntu-powered VPS in two ways - if you order it with our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll get an online interface and the software that's needed for your web sites will be pre-installed; whereas if you order it without any Control Panel, you'll receive only the OS and the Apache web server software, so that you're able to set up additional software through Secure Shell. When you decide to include the Managed Services upgrade either during the signup process or at any later time, our admins will keep close track of your hosting server and will upgrade Ubuntu routinely.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting

You are able to obtain Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server plans, considering that we supply 32-bit and 64-bit releases of this Operating System. Thus, you will be able to choose the more appropriate of them, depending on the type of applications that you need to install and run and on the system requirements they have about the OS. You'll have root-level access to the server, which provides you with full control over the software setting. We will set up only the Apache web server software, so you'll be able to add everything else you may need, even when it is not related directly to Internet sites, such as a VOIP server, for instance. You'll be able to control everything through a console, but if you want, you can also install a hosting Control Panel, on condition that it's compatible with Ubuntu. When you order our optional Managed Services bundle, we will keep your OS up-to-date weekly and will ensure that you have the latest software packages for a well-balanced and risk-free server environment.
