This will enable you to set up the optimal software environment for all your web apps irrespective of their specifications. Because of the popularity of the Operating System, Ubuntu has huge developer and user communities, so you will always find a lot of materials on the world wide web related to any question or problem that you might have.
Ubuntu in VPS Hosting
We supply Ubuntu with all our VPS hosting services and based on what requirements your web applications have, you can get the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the Operating System with only a few clicks throughout the order process. When you obtain your server without a website hosting Control Panel, the sole software that will be set up on top of Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, so you are able to use a console in order to access the server and to set up a software environment of your choice. If you obtain your server with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will have a world wide web interface with which you will be able to manage almost everything as quickly as you manage an ordinary shared account and all the vital MySQL, FTP and e-mail server software are pre-installed, but the root access to the server will be limited. If you do not have a lot of experience, or in case you do not plan to waste time on VPS supervision procedures, you're able to reap the benefits of the Managed Services upgrade, that features weekly Ubuntu Operating System updates.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting
You can obtain Ubuntu with our dedicated server packages, due to the fact that we provide 32-bit and 64-bit editions of this OS. In this way, you'll be able to select the more appropriate of them, based on the type of apps which you'd like to install and run and on the system requirements they have regarding the Operating System. You'll have root-level access to the server, which will give you full control of the software setting. We will set up just the Apache web server software, so you will be able to add whatever else you will need, even when it's not related directly to web sites, such as a VOIP server, for instance. You will be able to manage everything using a console, but if you want, you can also set up a website hosting Control Panel, when it is compatible with Ubuntu. When you order our optional Managed Services bundle, we will keep your OS up-to-date weekly and will ensure that you have the newest software packages for a well-balanced and protected server environment.
