Ubuntu in VPS Hosting
With all of our Linux VPS hosting services, you will be able to decide on the Ubuntu OS from the order page. We are aware of the fact that some pieces of software have specific requirements in terms of the Operating System they are set up on, which means that you are able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of Ubuntu. In addition, you can select whether your VPS should feature our Hepsia Control Panel or no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you'll have everything you'll need pre-installed - MySQL, email server, FTP, etc. software, and you are able to do everything by using your online browser, yet the root access is restricted; while in the second case, you will receive Ubuntu plus the Apache server software only, so that you can set up anything freely because of the full root access which you'll be given, however the server management tasks are done using a console. Our sysadmins will watch your VPS and upgrade the Ubuntu installation weekly when you add the optional Managed Services bundle which we offer.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting
If the apps that you need to run require Ubuntu and plenty of system resources, you should opt for our Linux dedicated web hosting and add this OS to your order with just a single click. You are able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the Operating System, depending on which release your apps need in order to work properly and to get the most of the server hardware. Since you'll have full root access, you will have full control over the software environment on the machine and you will be able to install anything you would like. The Ubuntu-powered server doesn't come with a website hosting Control Panel, so you can manage your content through a Secure Shell console, however if you would like, you can install a third-party Control Panel and use a graphical interface to take care of your web sites. In case you do not want to lose time managing the hosting server, you can use our Managed Services package, that features a number of tasks done by our system administrators on your behalf.
