Ubuntu in VPS Servers
Ubuntu is available with our VPS web hosting plans and you can obtain a VPS running it in less than an hour. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are available, so you will be able to pick the one that you need when the software that you would like to run on the web hosting server has specific system requirements regarding this. You can also select whether your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be set up with no Control Panel, in which case you'll have full root access and you can install anything using a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on it, in which case you'll have a web interface and all the necessary web server, MySQL, FTP, mail server, etc. software is pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more limited, but this type of installation is more effective for users with less experience. We will also keep your Ubuntu up-to-date on a regular basis if you add the Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do this during the VPS order process or at any later time through your billing Control Panel.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

Thus, you are able to choose the more appropriate of them, depending on the type of applications which you would like to install and run and on the system requirements they have about the OS. You will have root-level access to the server, which provides you with full control over the software environment. We will install only the Apache web server software, so you will be able to add whatever else you may need, even if it is not related directly to Internet sites, such as a VOIP server, for instance. You're able to control everything from a console, but if you want, you can also install a website hosting Control Panel, on condition that it's compatible with Ubuntu. If you order the optional Managed Services bundle, we will keep your OS up-to-date on a weekly basis and will make sure that you have the newest software packages for a reliable and risk-free server environment.
