Ubuntu in VPS
We offer Ubuntu with all our Linux VPS
and depending on what system requirements your web apps have, you will be able to get the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS with just a couple of mouse clicks during the order process. If you order your server devoid of hosting Control Panel, the sole piece of software which will be set up on top of Ubuntu will be the Apache web server software, which means that you are able to use a console to access the server and to build a software environment of your liking. When you order your server with our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will have a web interface with which you are able to manage almost everything as easily as you control a regular shared account and all of the necessary MySQL, FTP and email server software will be pre-installed, but the root access to the server is restricted. If you don't have much experience, or in case you don't like to waste time on VPS supervision procedures, you're able to take advantage of our Managed Services upgrade, which features weekly Ubuntu Operating System updates.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Hosting
If the apps that you want to run require Ubuntu as well as lots of resources, you can opt for one of our dedicated hosting
and add this Operating System to your order with a click. You will be able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the Operating System, according to which release your applications need to function properly and to get the most of the server hardware. As you'll have full root access, you will have full control over the software environment on the machine and you'll be able to set up anything you would like. The Ubuntu-powered server doesn't include a website hosting Control Panel, therefore you can manage your content using a Secure Shell console, but if you would like, you can install a third-party Control Panel and use a graphical interface to take care of your sites. When you don't want to lose time controlling the web hosting server, you can employ the Managed Services package, that includes a lot of tasks performed by our sysadmins on your behalf.
