Ubuntu in VPS Servers

Ubuntu is available with our VPS web hosting plans and you can acquire a VPS running it in just 60 minutes. 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the OS are available, so you can pick the one that you need when the software that you want to run on the server has particular system requirements in this regard. You can also select whether your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be set up with no Control Panel, in which case you will have full root access and you can 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 of the needed web server, MySQL, FTP, electronic mail server, etc. software will be pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more restricted, but this type of installation is more effective for users with less experience. We will also maintain your Ubuntu up-to-date on a regular basis when you add our Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do so throughout the VPS order process or at any later time via your billing Control Panel.
