Ubuntu in VPS Servers
We offer Ubuntu with all of our VPS servers and depending on what system requirements your web applications have, you will be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS with just a couple of mouse clicks throughout the registration process. If you obtain your server without a website hosting Control Panel, the only software which will be installed on top of Ubuntu will be the Apache web server software, therefore you will be able to use a console to gain access to the server and to create a software environment that you choose. When you get your server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will have an online interface with which you're able to control almost everything as easily as you manage a regular shared account and all vital MySQL, FTP and e-mail server software are pre-installed, yet the root access to the server will be restricted. When you don't have a lot of experience, or if you do not wish to waste time on VPS administration procedures, you'll be able to take advantage of our Managed Services upgrade, which features every week Ubuntu Operating System upgrades.
