Ubuntu in VPS Servers

With all of our VPS web hosting plans, you will be able to select the Ubuntu Operating System on the order page. We recognize the fact that some pieces of software have particular requirements with regard to the OS they are set up on, so you will be able to select from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of Ubuntu. In addition, you can select whether the VPS should include the Hepsia Control Panel or with no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you'll receive everything you need pre-installed - MySQL, e-mail server, FTP, etc. software, and you'll be able to do everything by using your web browser, however the root access will be restricted; whereas in the second case, you will receive Ubuntu and the Apache server software only, so that you can install anything freely because of the full root access which you'll be given, yet the server management tasks will be performed using a console. Our admins can watch your VPS and upgrade the Ubuntu setup weekly when you add the additional Managed Services bundle that we offer.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

We provide Ubuntu with our dedicated server packages and if you need this Operating System, you're able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition with just a click on the registration page. We provide two versions, in order to ensure that the hosting server matches the system requirements of the software that you would like to set up. The full root admission to the server will enable you to set up any other software, due to the fact that the only pre-installed app is the Apache web server. You're able to access the server safely from a console, yet if you like better to use a web interface, you can install any kind of Control Panel which can function on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you would like to concentrate your efforts on your content and not on server management tasks, you can add our Managed Services upgrade and we will handle plenty of tasks for you, among them once a week OS upgrades.
