Ubuntu in VPS Servers

We offer Ubuntu with all our Linux VPS hosting service and depending on what requirements your web apps have, you will be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the Operating System with only a couple of clicks throughout the order process. If you order your server devoid of web hosting Control Panel, the sole software that will be set up on top of Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, therefore you will be able to use a console to gain access to the website hosting server and to install a software environment of your choice. If you obtain your server with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will have a world wide web interface with which you will be able to manage almost everything just as easily as you manage an ordinary shared account and all the necessary MySQL, FTP and email server software are pre-installed, however the root access to the server is limited. When you don't have much experience, or in case you don't like to waste time on VPS control procedures, you can take full advantage of the Managed Services upgrade, which includes weekly Ubuntu Operating System upgrades.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

Ubuntu is one of the OS options that you can find on our order page in case you want to get one of our dedicated service. We will set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit release, to match the system requirements of the applications which you would like to install on the server. You may also select the software which will operate on your machine, because we will install only the Apache web server software, so everything else can be tailor-made software that you choose. You'll be able to install the latter without problems by using a Secure Shell console, as you will have root-level access and you will have full control over the hosting server. You are free to set up a website hosting Control Panel as well and control some things using a graphical interface, as long as it can function on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things simpler, we also supply a Managed Services upgrade, that, among other things, comes with Operating System upgrades.
