Ubuntu in VPS Servers

Ubuntu is available with our VPS plans and you can acquire a VPS running it in just one hour. 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the OS are available, so you can choose the one that you need if the software that you wish to run on your website hosting server has specific system requirements regarding this. You can also select whether your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be set up with no Control Panel, in which case you'll have full root access and you'll be able to install anything through a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on it, in which case you'll have an online interface and all the required web server, MySQL, FTP, e-mail server, etc. software will be pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more restricted, but this type of installation is more suitable for users with less experience. We can also keep your Ubuntu up-to-date regularly when you add our Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do this throughout the VPS order process or at any later time through your billing Control Panel.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

Ubuntu is among the OS options which you can find on our registration page if you decide to get one of our dedicated web hosting plans. We can install the 32-bit or the 64-bit version, to match the system requirements of the apps that you'd like to install on the server. You can also select the software which will run on your machine, as we will install only the Apache web server software, so all else can be customized software that you choose. You will be able to install the latter without problems by using a Secure Shell console, as you will have root-level access and you'll have full control over the hosting server. You are free to set up a web hosting Control Panel too 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 provide a Managed Services upgrade, that, among other things, contains Operating System upgrades.
