Ubuntu in VPS Servers

If you need an Ubuntu-powered server, you will be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS with each and every VPS server package that we offer and everything is set up within one hour, which means that you will be able to start using your VPS right away. We provide two separate versions since certain programs have specific requirements to work properly. You are able to manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in two ways - if you order it with our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will get a world wide web interface and the software which is required for your web sites will be pre-installed; whereas if you order it without any Control Panel, you will receive only the OS and the Apache web server software, so you're able to install other software through Secure Shell. If you decide to add our Managed Services upgrade either throughout the registration process or at any later time, our admins will keep track of your server and will upgrade Ubuntu on a regular basis.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

Ubuntu is one of the OS options which you will find on our registration page in case you decide to get one of our dedicated service. We can install the 32-bit or the 64-bit version, to match the system requirements of the apps which you would like to set up 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 everything else can be custom-made software of your choice. You will be able to set up the latter without any problems through a Secure Shell console, since you'll have root-level access and you'll have full control over the server. You are free to set up a hosting Control Panel as well and control some things from a graphical interface, as long as it can run on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things easier, we also offer a Managed Services upgrade, which, among other things, includes Operating System updates.
