Ubuntu in VPS Hosting
Ubuntu is available with all our Linux VPS hosting and you can purchase a VPS running it in just an hour. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are available, so you will be able to select the one which you need when the software that you wish to run on the website hosting server has specific system requirements regarding this. You can also select if your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be installed with no Control Panel, in which case you will have full root access and you'll be able to set up anything using a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on it, in which case you will have a web interface and all the necessary web server, MySQL, FTP, mail server, etc. software will be pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more restricted, but such a installation is more efficient for users with less experience. We can also keep your Ubuntu up-to-date regularly if you add our Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do this throughout the VPS order process or at any later time via your billing Control Panel.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting
When the applications that you would like to run require Ubuntu as well as lots of resources, you can choose one of our dedicated web hosting and add this Operating System to your order with a click. You're able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the Operating System, according to which release your apps need in order to work properly and to get the most of your server hardware.
