Ubuntu in VPS Servers
Ubuntu is available with all of our VPS servers and you can purchase a VPS running it in just 60 minutes. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are available, so you're able to choose the one which you need when the software that you want to run on the website hosting server has particular system requirements regarding this. You may also select if your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be set up without a Control Panel, in which case you will have full root access and you'll be able to set up anything through a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on it, in which case you'll have a world wide web interface and all necessary 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 such a setup is more suitable for users with less experience. We will also maintain your Ubuntu up-to-date regularly if you add the Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do this throughout the VPS order process or at any later time via your billing Control Panel.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
You're able to get Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server packages, since we offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions of this Operating System. In this way, you are able to pick the more appropriate of the two, based on the type of apps that you wish to install and run and on the system requirements they have about the OS. You'll have root-level access to the server, which will provide you with full control over the software setting. We will install just the Apache web server software, which means that you will be able to add anything else you need, even when it is not related directly to web sites, such as a VOIP server, for example. You'll be able to control everything using a console, yet if you want, you may also install a website hosting Control Panel, provided that it's compatible with Ubuntu. In case you order the optional Managed Services bundle, we will keep your OS up-to-date on a weekly basis and will ensure that you have the most up-to-date software packages for a stable and safe server environment.
