Ubuntu in VPS Servers

Ubuntu is available with all our VPS plans and you can get a VPS running it in less than an hour. 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the OS are available, so that you're able to choose the one which you need when the software that you wish to run on your server has particular system requirements in this regard. You can also select if your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be installed with no Control Panel, in which case you'll have full root access and you will be able to set up anything using a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on it, in which case you will have an online interface and all of the required web server, MySQL, FTP, e-mail server, etc. software is pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more restricted, 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 when you add our Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do this throughout the VPS order process or at any later time from your billing Control Panel.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

Ubuntu is among the OS options that you will find on our registration page if you want to get one of our dedicated servers. We'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit version, so as to match the system requirements of the applications that you'd like to set up on the server. You can also select the software which will operate on your machine, as we will set up only the Apache web server software, so all else can be custom software of your liking. You will be able to install the latter without problems using a Secure Shell console, since you will get root-level access and you will have full control of your server. You are free to set up a hosting Control Panel too and manage some things from a graphical interface, as long as it can work on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things easier for you, we also supply a Managed Services upgrade, which, among other things, includes Operating System upgrades.
