Ubuntu in VPS

Ubuntu is available with all our VPS and you can get a VPS running it in less than sixty minutes. 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the OS are available, which means that you are able to choose the one which you need when the software that you would like to run on your website hosting server has particular system requirements in this regard. You can also select whether your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be set up without a Control Panel, in which case you will have full root access and you will be able to set up anything using a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on it, in which case you will have an online interface and all needed web server, MySQL, FTP, e-mail server, etc. software is pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more restricted, but this type of setup is more effective for users with less experience. We can also maintain your Ubuntu up-to-date regularly if you add the Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do so throughout the VPS order process or at any later time through your billing Control Panel.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Hosting

Ubuntu is one of the OS options which you'll find on our order page when you decide to obtain one of our dedicated hosting. We can install the 32-bit or the 64-bit release, in order to meet the system requirements of the apps which you would like to install on the server. You may also select the software that will run on your machine, because we will install only the Apache web server software, so the rest can be custom software of your choice. You will be able to set up the latter without any problems from a Secure Shell console, as you'll receive root-level access and you'll get full control of the server. You are free to set up a web hosting Control Panel as well and control some things through a graphical interface, as long as it can run on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things simpler for you, we also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that, among other things, contains OS updates.
