Ubuntu in VPS Hosting

When you need an Ubuntu-powered server, you can select the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS with each virtual private server package that we offer and everything is set up within an hour, so you are able to start using your VPS right away. We offer two separate editions because certain programs have certain requirements so as to work properly. You will be able to manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in 2 ways - if you order it with our in-house made Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll get a world wide web interface and the software which is needed for your sites will be pre-installed; while if you order it without any Control Panel, you'll receive only the Operating System and the Apache web server software, which means that you can set up other software using Secure Shell. If you decide to include the Managed Services upgrade either throughout the signup process or at any later time, our administrators will monitor your hosting server and will upgrade Ubuntu routinely.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting

If the applications that you want to run require Ubuntu and lots of resources, you should opt for our dedicated web hosting and add this OS to your order with a single click. You can select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS, based on which edition your apps need to work properly and to get the most of the server hardware. Since you will have full root access, you'll have full control over the software environment on your machine and you will be able to set up anything you would like. The Ubuntu-powered server does not come with a website hosting Control Panel, so you can manage your content from a Secure Shell console, however if you want, you can install a third-party Control Panel and use a graphical interface to take care of your web sites. When you do not want to lose time taking care of the hosting server, you can reap the benefits of the Managed Services package, which includes numerous tasks done by our admins on your behalf.
