Ubuntu in VPS Servers
We provide Ubuntu with all our VPS hosting plans and based on what requirements your web apps have, you're able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the Operating System with just a couple of clicks throughout the registration process. If you order your server without a hosting Control Panel, the only piece of software that will be installed in addition to Ubuntu will be the Apache web server software, so you are able to use a console in order to access the hosting server and to install a software environment of your choice. If you order your server with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will have a world wide web interface with which you can control almost everything as easily as you control a standard shared account and all the vital MySQL, FTP and email server software will be pre-installed, but the root access to your server is restricted. If you don't have a lot experience, or if you don't plan to waste time on VPS administration procedures, you'll be able to reap the benefits of our Managed Services upgrade, which includes regular Ubuntu Operating System updates.
