Ubuntu in VPS Hosting
We offer Ubuntu with our VPS hosting
and depending on what system requirements your web apps have, you can get the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS with only a couple of mouse clicks throughout the registration process. If you get your server with no hosting Control Panel, the sole software which will be installed in addition to Ubuntu will be the Apache web server software, which means that you can use a console in order to access the hosting server and to install a software environment of your choice. When you acquire your server with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will have an online interface with which you will be able to manage almost everything as quickly as you manage a regular shared account and all of the important MySQL, FTP and e-mail server software are pre-installed, yet the root access to your server will be restricted. If you don't have a lot experience, or in case you don't plan to waste time on VPS management procedures, you will be able to take advantage of our Managed Services upgrade, that includes every week Ubuntu Operating System upgrades.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting
You are able to acquire Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server
packages, due to the fact that we supply 32-bit and 64-bit versions of this OS. Thus, you'll be able to select the more appropriate of these two, depending on the type of apps which you want to set up and run and on the system requirements they have about the Operating System. You will have root-level access to the server, which will give you full control of the software environment. We'll set up only the Apache web server software, therefore you are able to add everything else you may need, even when it is not related directly to Internet sites, such as a VOIP server, for instance. You will be able to control everything through a console, yet if you want, you can also install a website hosting Control Panel, when it is compatible with Ubuntu. When you order the optional Managed Services bundle, we'll keep your OS up-to-date on a weekly basis and will ensure that you have the latest software packages for a reliable and safe server environment.
