Ubuntu in VPS
We provide Ubuntu with our Linux VPS and depending on what system requirements your web applications have, you're able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the Operating System with just a few mouse clicks during the registration process. If you order your server devoid of hosting Control Panel, the only software that will be installed along with Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, thus you can use a console in order to access the website hosting server and to set up a software environment that you choose. If you acquire your server with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll have a web interface with which you're able to manage almost everything as easily as you control a regular shared account and all the required MySQL, FTP and email server software are pre-installed, but the root access to your server is restricted. If you do not have a lot experience, or if you do not like to waste time on VPS supervision procedures, you're able to take advantage of the Managed Services upgrade, which includes every week Ubuntu Operating System upgrades.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Hosting
Ubuntu is one of the Operating System options that you can find on our order page when you choose to acquire one of our Linux dedicated hosting. We can install the 32-bit or the 64-bit version, to satisfy the system requirements of the apps that you need to set up on the server. You can also select the software which will run on your machine, due to the fact that we will set up only the Apache web server software, so all else can be custom software of your liking. You'll be able to set up the latter without any problems using a Secure Shell console, since you will receive root-level access and you will get full control over the hosting server. You can install a website hosting Control Panel as well and control some things via a graphical interface, as long as it can function on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things easier, we also supply a Managed Services upgrade, which, among other things, contains OS updates.
