Ubuntu in VPS Servers

We offer Ubuntu with all our VPS servers and based on what system requirements your web apps have, you are able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the Operating System with just a few clicks during the order process. When you obtain your server without a web hosting Control Panel, the only piece of software that will be installed on top of Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, which means that you are able to use a console to access the server and to create a software environment of your choice. If you get your server with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll have an online interface with which you will be able to control almost everything as easily as you control a standard shared account and all important MySQL, FTP and email server software are pre-installed, yet the root access to the server will be limited. If you don't have a lot of experience, or in case you do not plan to waste time on VPS control procedures, you'll be able to take full advantage of our Managed Services upgrade, that features once a week Ubuntu Operating System upgrades.

Ubuntu is one of the Operating System options that you will find on our registration page if you want to acquire one of our dedicated servers. We can install the 32-bit or the 64-bit version, so as to satisfy the system requirements of the apps which you would like to set up on the server. You can also choose the software that will operate on your machine, as we will set up only the Apache web server software, so everything else can be customized software of your choice. You are able to install the latter without problems by using a Secure Shell console, because you'll have root-level access and you will get full control over your server. You are free to install a hosting Control Panel too and manage some things from a graphical interface, as long as it can run on an Ubuntu-driven machine.
