Ubuntu in VPS Servers
With any of our Linux VPS servers, you're able to pick the Ubuntu Operating System on the order page. We are aware of the fact that some pieces of software have certain requirements in terms of the Operating System they can be set up on, and you're able to select from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of Ubuntu. You can also select whether your VPS should come with our Hepsia Control Panel or no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you will receive everything you need pre-installed - MySQL, e-mail server, FTP, etc. software, and you're able to make everything from your online browser, but the root access will be limited; while in the second case, you'll receive Ubuntu and the Apache server software only, so you're able to install anything freely thanks to the full root access which you will be given, but the server management tasks will be done from a console. Our admins can watch your VPS and upgrade the Ubuntu setup weekly if you add the optional Managed Services bundle that we offer.
