Ubuntu in VPS Servers
When you need an Ubuntu-powered server, you'll be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the Operating System with each VPS server plan that we supply and everything will be set up within 60 minutes, which means that you can start using the VPS without delay. We provide two separate versions since certain programs have certain requirements to work efficiently. You'll be able to manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in two ways - when you order it with our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll receive an online interface and all the software that is needed for your websites will be pre-installed; whereas in case you order it without any Control Panel, you'll get only the Operating System and the Apache web server software, which means that you are able to set up additional software through Secure Shell. If you decide to include our Managed Services upgrade either throughout the registration process or at any later time, our administrators will keep track of your hosting server and will update Ubuntu routinely.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
We provide Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server plans and if you need this Operating System, you are able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit release with only a click on the registration page. We provide two versions, so as to make sure that the server will meet the system requirements of the software that you need to install. The full root admission to your server allows you to install any other software, since the only pre-installed app is the Apache web server. You're able to access the server securely using a console, but in case you would like to use a world wide web interface, you're free to set up any Control Panel that can function on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you need to concentrate your efforts on the content and not on server management tasks, you'll be able to add our Managed Services upgrade and we will handle numerous tasks for you, including once a week OS updates.
