Ubuntu in VPS Servers

Ubuntu is available with all of our VPS servers and you can purchase a VPS running it in less than 60 minutes. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are available, so you're able to pick the one that you need if the software that you wish to run on your web hosting server has particular system requirements in this regard. You can also select if your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be set up with no Control Panel, in which case you will have full root access and you can set up anything using a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on it, in which case you will have a world wide web interface and all necessary web server, MySQL, FTP, e-mail server, etc. software is pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more limited, but this type of setup is more efficient for users with less experience. We will also keep your Ubuntu up-to-date regularly when you add our Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do so during the VPS order process or at any later time through your billing Control Panel.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

When the apps that you need to run require Ubuntu as well as plenty of resources, you should select one of our dedicated servers and add this Operating System to your order with a single click. You can select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS, depending on which release your apps need to function properly and to get the most of the server hardware. Since you'll have full root access, you'll have full control over the software environment on the machine and you can set up anything you'd like. The Ubuntu-powered server does not feature a hosting Control Panel, and you can manage your content through a Secure Shell console, however if you want, you can install a third-party Control Panel and use a graphical interface to manage your Internet sites. In case you don't want to lose time controlling your web hosting server, you can take advantage of our Managed Services package, which includes lots of tasks performed by our sysadmins on your behalf. The upgrade comes with routine updates of your Ubuntu Operating System as well.
