Ubuntu in VPS Hosting

We provide Ubuntu with all of our Linux VPS hosting and based on what requirements your web applications have, you can select the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the Operating System with only a couple of clicks during the order process. If you get your server without a website hosting Control Panel, the sole software which will be installed along with Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, thus you are able to use a console in order to access the website hosting server and to build a software environment of your choice. If you get your server with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll have an online interface with which you'll be able to manage almost everything as quickly as you control a regular shared account and all required MySQL, FTP and email server software are pre-installed, however the root access to your server is restricted. When you don't have a lot of experience, or in case you do not want to waste time on VPS control procedures, you are able to take advantage of our Managed Services upgrade, that features every week Ubuntu Operating System upgrades.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting

If the applications that you need to run require Ubuntu and plenty of system resources, you should select our Linux dedicated web hosting and add this Operating System to your order with a single click. You are able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of your Operating System, according to which edition your apps need to work properly and to get the most of your server hardware. As you'll have full root access, you will have full control over the software environment on your machine and you can install anything you would like. The Ubuntu-powered server does not contain a web hosting Control Panel, and you can manage your content from 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 sites.
