Ubuntu in VPS Servers
With all of our VPS servers, you're able to select the Ubuntu Operating System from the order page. We're aware of the fact that some pieces of software have specific requirements in terms of the OS they can be installed on, and you can choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of Ubuntu. Also, you can choose if the VPS should come with the Hepsia Control Panel or no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you will find everything you'll need pre-installed - MySQL, electronic mail server, FTP, etc. software, and you'll be able to make everything through your web browser, however the root access will be limited; whereas in the second case, you'll get Ubuntu as well as the Apache server software only, so that you'll be able to install anything freely because of the full root access that you will be given, yet the server management tasks are done from a console. Our administrators can keep track of your VPS and update the Ubuntu setup weekly if you add the additional Managed Services package which we offer.
