Ubuntu in VPS Servers
Ubuntu is available with all our Linux VPS web hosting service and you can acquire a VPS running it in less than one hour. 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the OS are available, which means that you are able to select the one that you need when the software that you wish to run on your hosting server has particular system requirements regarding this. You may also select whether your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be set up without a 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 a web interface and all of the necessary web server, MySQL, FTP, e-mail server, etc. software will be pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more limited, but such a setup is more effective for users with less experience. We can also maintain your Ubuntu up-to-date regularly when you add our Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do so throughout the VPS order process or at any later time using your billing Control Panel.
