Ubuntu in VPS Web Hosting
When you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you're able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS with each and every virtual private server plan that we supply and everything is set up within an hour, so you will be able to start using the VPS right away. We provide two separate editions since some programs have certain requirements to work properly. You're able to control an Ubuntu-powered VPS in 2 ways - if you order it with our in-house made Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will get a web interface and all of the software that is required for your Internet sites will be pre-installed; whereas if you order it with no Control Panel, you will get just the Operating System and the Apache web server software, so that you can install additional software through Secure Shell. When you choose to include the Managed Services upgrade either throughout the signup process or at any later time, our admins will keep an eye on your hosting server and will update Ubuntu regularly.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers Hosting
When the applications that you want to run require Ubuntu and plenty of system resources, you can choose our dedicated servers hosting and add this OS to your order with a single click. You can select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of your OS, according to which edition your applications need to work properly and to get the most of your server hardware. As you will have full root access, you will have full control over the software environment on your machine and you can install anything you'd like. The Ubuntu-powered server doesn't include a website hosting Control Panel, and you can manage your content using a Secure Shell console, yet if you'd like, you can install a third-party Control Panel and use a graphical interface to command your websites. In case you don't want to lose time supervising the web hosting server, you can take full advantage of our Managed Services package, that includes countless tasks done by our admins on your behalf.
