Ubuntu in VPS Servers
If you need an Ubuntu-powered server, you will be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS with each and every VPS server package that we supply and everything will be set up within 1 hour, which means that you will be able to start using your VPS without delay. We supply two different editions since some programs have specific requirements so as to operate effectively. You're able to control an Ubuntu-powered VPS in two ways - when you order it with our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll get a web interface and the software that is needed for your websites will be pre-installed; whereas in case you order it with no Control Panel, you will receive just the Operating System and the Apache web server software, which means that you're able to set up other software using Secure Shell. If you decide to add our Managed Services upgrade either throughout the signup process or at any later time, our administrators will monitor your hosting server and will upgrade Ubuntu routinely.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
We provide Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server packages and if you need this Operating System, you can select the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition with only a click on the registration page. We provide two versions, so as to make sure that the server meets the requirements of the software that you wish to install. The full root admission to your server allows you to install various other software, due to the fact that the only pre-installed application will be the Apache web server. You are able to access the server securely from a console, yet if you like better to use a world wide web interface, you can set up any kind of Control Panel which can run on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you need to focus your efforts on the content and not on server management tasks, you are able to add our Managed Services upgrade and we will take care of various tasks for you, among them weekly OS upgrades.
