Ubuntu in VPS
We supply Ubuntu with our VPS and based on what requirements your web apps have, you can choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS with only a few clicks throughout the order process. If you obtain your server without a hosting Control Panel, the sole piece of software which will be installed on top of Ubuntu will be the Apache web server software, so you will be able to use a console to gain access to the server and to install a software environment that you choose. When you order your server with our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll have a web interface with which you're able to manage almost everything as easily as you control a standard shared account and all the necessary MySQL, FTP and email server software are pre-installed, but the root access to the server is limited. If you don't have a lot experience, or if you don't wish to waste time on VPS control procedures, you'll be able to take advantage of the Managed Services upgrade, which includes every week Ubuntu Operating System upgrades.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Hosting
We supply Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server packages and if you need this OS, you can pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit version with only a click on the registration page. We supply two editions, so as to make sure that the server will meet the system requirements of the software that you'd like to install. The full root accessibility to the server will allow you to set up various other software, as the only pre-installed app will be the Apache web server. You will be able to access the server safely using a console, however if you like better to use a web interface, you're free to install any Control Panel that can function on an Ubuntu-powered machine.
