This will enable you to set up the proper software environment for your web apps regardless of their specifications. As a result of the popularity of the Operating System, Ubuntu has large developer and user communities, so that you will always find plenty of materials online regarding any question or problem that you might have.

Ubuntu in VPS

When you need an Ubuntu-powered server, you can select the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS with each and every virtual private server plan that we provide and everything is set up within an hour, which means that you are able to start using your VPS without delay. We offer two different editions since certain pieces of software have certain requirements in order to operate properly. You will be able to control an Ubuntu-powered VPS in 2 ways - if you order it with our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll receive a web interface and the software that is needed for your websites will be pre-installed; whereas when you order it with no Control Panel, you will receive only the Operating System and the Apache web server software, so you'll be able to install additional software employing Secure Shell. If you choose to add our Managed Services upgrade either throughout the signup process or at any later time, our admins will keep an eye on your hosting server and will update Ubuntu regularly.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Hosting

When the apps that you want to run require Ubuntu as well as plenty of system resources, you can opt for our dedicated servers hosting packages and add this OS to your order with just a single click. You will be able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of the OS, based on which edition your applications need to function properly and to get the most of the server hardware. As you'll have full root access, you will have full control over the software environment on the machine and you will be able to set up anything you'd like. The Ubuntu-powered server doesn't contain a website hosting Control Panel, therefore you can manage your content using a Secure Shell console, but if you want, you can set up a third-party Control Panel and use a graphical interface to command your web sites. When you do not want to lose time controlling your server, you can reap the benefits of the Managed Services package, that includes many tasks done by our sysadmins on your behalf. The upgrade features routine updates of your Ubuntu OS as well.
