Ubuntu in VPS Servers

With any of our VPS plans, you'll be able to pick the Ubuntu Operating System from the order page. We're aware of the fact that some pieces of software have particular requirements with regard to the Operating System they're installed on, and you can choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit edition of Ubuntu. In addition, you can choose whether the VPS should come with the Hepsia Control Panel or with no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you'll get everything you will need pre-installed - MySQL, email server, FTP, etc. software, and you're able to do everything via your online browser, yet the root access will be restricted; whereas in the second case, you'll get Ubuntu plus the Apache server software only, which means that you can install anything freely thanks to the full root access that you'll be given, however the server management tasks can be done through a console. Our sysadmins can keep track of your VPS and update the Ubuntu installation weekly if you add the additional Managed Services bundle which we offer.
