Ubuntu in VPS Servers

Ubuntu is available with all our VPS plans and you can obtain a VPS running it in just 60 minutes. 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the OS are available, which means that you're able to select the one which you need if the software that you wish to run on your web hosting server has particular system requirements in this regard. You can also select whether your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be installed with no Control Panel, in which case you'll have full root access and you'll be able to install anything through a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on it, in which case you will have a web interface and all of the needed web server, MySQL, FTP, mail server, etcetera. software is pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more restricted, but such a setup is more effective for users with less experience. We will also maintain your Ubuntu up-to-date on a regular basis when you add the Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do so during the VPS order process or at any later time through your billing Control Panel.

You may also choose the software that will run on your machine, due to the fact that we will set up only the Apache web server software, so all else can be customized software of your choice.
