Ubuntu in VPS Servers

Ubuntu is available with all of our VPS servers and you can acquire a VPS running it in less than 1 hour. 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the OS are available, which means that you can pick the one which you need if the software that you want to run on the website hosting server has particular system requirements in this regard. You may also select whether your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be installed with no Control Panel, in which case you'll have full root access and you'll be able to set up anything through a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on it, in which case you'll have an online interface and all required web server, MySQL, FTP, mail server, etc. software will be pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more restricted, but such a setup is more efficient for users with less experience. We will also keep your Ubuntu up-to-date on a regular basis when you add our Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do this throughout the VPS order process or at any later time via your billing Control Panel.
