Ubuntu in VPS Servers

Ubuntu is available with our VPS servers and you can purchase a VPS running it in just sixty minutes. 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the OS are available, so that you can pick the one which you need when the software that you would like to run on the web hosting server has specific system requirements in this regard. You can also select if your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be set up without a Control Panel, in which case you'll have full root access and you can set up anything through a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on it, in which case you'll have a web interface and all of the needed 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 installation is more effective for users with less experience. We will also maintain your Ubuntu up-to-date on a regular basis if you add the Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do this throughout the VPS order process or at any later time using your billing Control Panel.
