Ubuntu in VPS Servers
If you need an Ubuntu-powered server, you will be able to get the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS with each and every VPS server plan that we provide and everything will be set up within an hour, so you will be able to start using your VPS without delay. We offer two separate editions since certain programs have certain requirements so as to operate properly. You're able to control an Ubuntu-powered VPS in 2 ways - if you order it with our custom-built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll get an online interface and all the software which is required for your web sites will be pre-installed; whereas when you order it without any Control Panel, you will receive just the Operating System and the Apache web server software, which means that you're able to install other software through Secure Shell. If you choose to add the Managed Services upgrade either throughout the signup process or at any later time, our admins will keep close track of your server and will upgrade Ubuntu on a regular basis.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
Ubuntu is one of the OS options that you'll find on our order page in case you want to acquire one of our dedicated servers. We'll install the 32-bit or the 64-bit release, so as to satisfy the system requirements of the applications that you'd like to set up on the server. You may also choose the software that will run on your machine, since we will set up only the Apache web server software, so everything else can be custom-made software of your choice. You can set up the latter without problems by using a Secure Shell console, since you will have root-level access and you will have full control over your hosting server. You are free to set up a hosting Control Panel too and control some things using a graphical interface, as long as it can function on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things simpler, we also offer a Managed Services upgrade, which, among other things, contains Operating System upgrades.
