Ubuntu in VPS

Ubuntu is available with all of our VPS packages and you can purchase a VPS running it in less than 60 minutes. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are available, which means that you will be able to choose the one which you need if the software that you would like to run on the web hosting server has specific system requirements regarding this. You can also select whether your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be set up with no Control Panel, in which case you'll have full root access and you'll be able to install anything using a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on it, in which case you will have a world wide web interface and all of the necessary web server, MySQL, FTP, mail server, etc. software is pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more restricted, but such a installation is more effective for users with less experience. We can also maintain your Ubuntu up-to-date regularly if you add our Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do this throughout the VPS order process or at any later time from your billing Control Panel.
