This allows you to set up the ideal software environment for your web applications regardless of their specifications. Due to the popularity of the OS, Ubuntu has huge developer and user communities, which means that you will always find numerous materials online regarding any question or problem which you might have.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

When you need an Ubuntu-powered server, you're able to get the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the Operating System with each VPS server package that we provide and everything will be set up within an hour, so you're able to start using your VPS right away. We offer two separate versions due to the fact that certain programs have specific requirements in order to function properly. You're able to manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in two ways - if you order it with our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll receive a world wide web interface and all of the software which is required for your websites will be pre-installed; while if you order it without any Control Panel, you will receive only the OS and the Apache web server software, so you can set up additional software through Secure Shell. When you choose to include our Managed Services upgrade either during the signup process or at any later time, our administrators will monitor your server and will update Ubuntu on a regular basis.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

Ubuntu is among the OS options that you will find on our registration page in case you decide to acquire one of our dedicated servers. We will set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit release, so as to match the system requirements of the applications that you would like to set up on the server. You can also select the software that will run on your machine, because we will set up only the Apache web server software, so everything else can be customized software of your choice. You can set up the latter without problems employing a Secure Shell console, since you will receive root-level access and you'll have full control over the server. You are free to install a web hosting Control Panel too and control some things through a graphical interface, as long as it can work on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things easier for you, we also supply a Managed Services upgrade, that, among other things, contains OS upgrades.
