Ubuntu in VPS Hosting
If you need an Ubuntu-powered server, you'll be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the Operating System with each virtual private server package that we supply and everything will be set up within one hour, so you'll be able to start using your VPS right away. We supply two different versions since certain pieces of software have certain requirements in order to function effectively. You will be able to manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in two ways - if you order it with our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will receive a world wide web interface and all the software that's needed for your Internet sites will be pre-installed; while if you order it without any Control Panel, you will get just the Operating System and the Apache web server software, so you're able to set up other software using Secure Shell. When you choose to include our Managed Services upgrade either during the signup process or at any later time, our administrators will monitor your hosting server and will upgrade Ubuntu on a regular basis.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting
We supply Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server plans and if you need this Operating System, you will be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition with just a click on the order page. We offer two releases, so as to ensure that the hosting server will meet the requirements of the software that you'd like to set up. The full root accessibility to your server allows you to set up various other software, because the only pre-installed application will be the Apache web server. You're able to access the server securely using a console, however in case you like better to use an online interface, you can install any kind of Control Panel which can run on an Ubuntu-powered machine.
