This will enable you to install the proper software environment for all of your web applications regardless of their requirements. As a result of the popularity of the Operating System, Ubuntu has large developer and user communities, so that you can always find find plenty of materials on the Internet related to any question or problem that you might have.
Ubuntu in VPS Servers
If you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you can select the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the Operating System with each VPS server package that we supply and everything is set up within 1 hour, which means that you will be able to start using your VPS without delay. We supply two separate versions due to the fact that some programs have certain requirements to operate efficiently. You'll be able to control an Ubuntu-powered VPS in 2 ways - when you order it with our in-house made Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will receive a web interface and all the software which is needed for your web sites will be pre-installed; whereas if you order it without any Control Panel, you'll get just the OS and the Apache web server software, so you are able to install additional software through Secure Shell. If you choose to include our Managed Services upgrade either during the signup process or at any later time, our administrators will keep close track of your hosting server and will upgrade Ubuntu regularly.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
You are able to acquire Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server plans, due to the fact that we provide 32-bit and 64-bit editions of this Operating System. In this way, you can pick the more appropriate of these two, depending on the type of apps which you'd like to install and run and on the system requirements they have about the Operating System. You'll have root-level access to the server, which provides you with full control over the software setting. We will set up only the Apache web server software, which means that you're able to add everything else you may need, even when it's not related directly to websites, such as a VOIP server, for instance. You can manage everything from a console, but if you would like, you can also install a website hosting Control Panel, when it supports Ubuntu. When you order the optional Managed Services bundle, we will keep your OS up-to-date every week and will ensure that you have the latest software packages for a well-balanced and protected server environment.
