Ubuntu in VPS Web Hosting
We offer Ubuntu with our Linux VPS web hosting packages and based on what system requirements your web apps have, you can get the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the Operating System with just a couple of clicks throughout the registration process. If you obtain your server without a website hosting Control Panel, the sole piece of software which will be set up on top of Ubuntu will be the Apache web server software, thus you can use a console in order to access the hosting server and to create a software environment that you choose. When you obtain your server with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll have a world wide web interface with which you're able to manage almost everything as easily as you manage an ordinary shared account and all of the vital MySQL, FTP and e-mail server software are pre-installed, but the root access to your server is restricted. In case you don't have a lot experience, or in case you do not like to waste time on VPS administration procedures, you will be able to take advantage of our Managed Services upgrade, which features once a week Ubuntu Operating System updates.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You'll be able to obtain Ubuntu with our dedicated server plans, since we offer 32-bit and 64-bit editions of this OS. This way, you're able to choose the more appropriate of these two, based on the type of apps which you need to set up and run and on the system requirements they have regarding the OS. You'll have root-level access to the server, which gives you full control of the software environment. We will install just the Apache web server software, which means that you're able to add whatever else you'll need, even if it is not related directly to Internet sites, such as a VOIP server, for instance. You are able to manage everything using a console, but if you would like, you may also install a website hosting Control Panel, on condition that it's compatible with Ubuntu. When you order our optional Managed Services bundle, we'll keep your Operating System up-to-date on a weekly basis and will make sure that you have the latest software packages for a stable and protected server environment.
