This enables you to install the right software environment for all your web applications regardless of their specifications. Due to the popularity of the OS, Ubuntu has vast developer and user communities, so you can always find find a lot of materials on the web about any question or problem which you might have.

Ubuntu in VPS Web Hosting

When you need an Ubuntu-powered server, you're able to get the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS with each and every virtual private server plan that we supply and everything is set up within an hour, so you will be able to start using the VPS without delay. We supply two separate editions since certain pieces of software have specific requirements to operate effectively. You will be able to manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in two ways - if you order it with our custom-made Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will receive a web interface and all the software that's required for your web sites will be pre-installed; while when you order it devoid of Control Panel, you'll get only the Operating System and the Apache web server software, so you will be able to set up additional software through Secure Shell. When you decide to add our Managed Services upgrade either throughout the registration process or at any later time, our administrators will keep close track of your hosting server and will upgrade Ubuntu routinely.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If the apps that you want to run require Ubuntu and plenty of system resources, you can select one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting and add this Operating System to your order with a click. You are able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the OS, according to which edition your applications need in order to work properly and to get the most of the server hardware. Since you will have full root access, you'll have full control over the software environment on the machine and you will be able to install anything you'd like. The Ubuntu-powered server doesn't feature a web hosting Control Panel, therefore you can manage your content using a Secure Shell console, but if you'd like, you can set up 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 your server, you can take full advantage of our Managed Services package, that features a lot of tasks done by our system administrators on your behalf. The upgrade comes with regular updates of your Ubuntu OS as well.
