Ubuntu in VPS Servers
Ubuntu is available with all of our VPS hosting plans and you can purchase a VPS running it in just 60 minutes. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are available, so you'll be able to choose the one that you need when the software that you would like to run on the hosting server has specific system requirements in this regard. You can also select whether your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be set up without a 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'll have an online interface and all needed web server, MySQL, FTP, mail server, etcetera. software will be pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more limited, but such a installation is more effective for users with less experience. We can also keep your Ubuntu up-to-date on a regular basis if you add the Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do this during the VPS order process or at any later time using your billing Control Panel.
