Ubuntu in VPS

If you need an Ubuntu-powered server, you'll be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS with each virtual private server package that we provide and everything is set up within 1 hour, so you can start using your VPS right away. We provide two separate editions because certain programs have particular requirements in order to operate properly. You will be able to manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in 2 ways - if you order it with our custom-made Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will receive a web interface and all of the software which is required for your Internet sites will be pre-installed; whereas in case you order it with no Control Panel, you will receive just the OS and the Apache web server software, so you'll be able to set up additional software through Secure Shell. When you choose to include the Managed Services upgrade either throughout the registration process or at any later time, our administrators will keep an eye on your server and will upgrade Ubuntu on a regular basis.

Ubuntu is one of the OS options that you can find on our order page when you choose to obtain one of our Linux dedicated hosting. We can set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit release, in order to match the system requirements of the applications which you would like to set up on the server. You may also choose the software that will run on your machine, since we will set up only the Apache web server software, so everything else can be customized software of your liking. You can set up the latter without any problems through a Secure Shell console, since you'll receive root-level access and you'll get full control of your hosting server. You can install a website hosting Control Panel as well and manage some things via a graphical interface, as long as it can run on an Ubuntu-driven machine.
