Ubuntu in VPS Hosting

With all of our Linux VPS hosting, you're able to pick the Ubuntu Operating System from the order page. We recognize the fact that some pieces of software have certain requirements with regard to the Operating System they are set up on, so you're able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of Ubuntu. Also, you can select whether your VPS should come with the Hepsia Control Panel or with no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you will have everything you need pre-installed - MySQL, e-mail server, FTP, etc. software, and you're able to do everything from your Internet browser, but the root access will be restricted; whereas in the second case, you will receive Ubuntu and the Apache server software only, which means that you will be able to set up anything freely because of the full root access that you'll be given, yet the server management tasks are performed using a console. Our system administrators can monitor your VPS and update the Ubuntu installation weekly if you add the additional Managed Services package which we offer.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting

We supply Ubuntu with our dedicated server packages and if you need this Operating System, you will be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit version with only a click on the order page. We offer two releases, in order to guarantee that the hosting server matches the system requirements of the software that you'd like to set up. The full root admission to your server will allow you to install various other software, as the only pre-installed application will be the Apache web server. You'll be able to access the server safely using a console, but if you like better to use a web interface, you're free to install any Control Panel that can run on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you wish to focus your efforts on the content and not on server maintenance tasks, you can add the Managed Services upgrade and we will take care of plenty of tasks for you, which includes weekly OS updates.
