Ubuntu in VPS Servers
We provide Ubuntu with all of our Linux VPS servers and based on what requirements your web apps have, you will be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS with only a couple of clicks during the registration process. If you order your server without a hosting Control Panel, the sole piece of software that will be installed in addition to Ubuntu will be the Apache web server software, thus you're able to use a console to access the server and to build a software environment of your liking. When you order your server with our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will have a world wide web interface with which you can manage almost everything just as easily as you manage a standard shared account and all the vital MySQL, FTP and e-mail server software are pre-installed, yet the root access to your server is limited. In case you don't have a lot experience, or if you do not plan to waste time on VPS administration procedures, you'll be able to take full advantage of our Managed Services upgrade, which includes weekly Ubuntu Operating System updates.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
Ubuntu is among the OS options that you'll find on our registration page in case you decide to get one of our dedicated service. We will install the 32-bit or the 64-bit release, so as to meet the system requirements of the applications that you need to install on the server. You may also choose the software which will run on your machine, due to the fact that we will install only the Apache web server software, so all else can be tailor-made software that you choose. You'll be able to install the latter without problems using a Secure Shell console, because you'll have root-level access and you will have full control over the hosting server. You can set up a hosting Control Panel as well and control some things from a graphical interface, as long as it can function on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things simpler, we also supply a Managed Services upgrade, which, among other things, comes with OS updates.
