Ubuntu in VPS Servers
If you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you will be able to get the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS with each VPS server
plan that we supply and everything will be set up within one hour, which means that you'll be able to start using the VPS right away. We offer two separate versions since certain pieces of software have certain requirements to operate effectively. You can manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in two ways - when you order it with our custom-made Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll receive a world wide web interface and all of the software which is necessary for your web sites will be pre-installed; whereas if you order it with no Control Panel, you'll get only the Operating System and the Apache web server software, so you can set up other software through Secure Shell. When you decide to include our Managed Services upgrade either during the signup process or at any later time, our administrators will keep close track of your hosting server and will upgrade Ubuntu routinely.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
You'll be able to obtain Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server
packages, because we offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases of this Operating System. This way, you'll be able to pick the more appropriate of these two, depending on the type of apps that you would like to set up and run and on the system requirements they have about the Operating System. You'll have root-level access to the server, which will give you full control over the software setting. We will install just the Apache web server software, therefore you are able to add anything else you may need, even if it is not related directly to web sites, such as a VOIP server, for instance. You can manage everything through a console, however if you would like, you may also set up a hosting Control Panel, on condition that it supports Ubuntu. When you order our optional Managed Services bundle, we'll maintain your OS up-to-date every week and will ensure that you have the most recent software packages for a stable and secure server environment.
