Ubuntu in VPS Hosting

Ubuntu is available with all our Linux VPS hosting services and you can purchase a VPS running it in less than an hour. 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the OS are available, so you will be able to choose the one that you need when the software that you would like to run on the website hosting server has specific 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 will have full root access and you will 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 world wide web interface and all needed web server, MySQL, FTP, e-mail server, etc. software is pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more limited, but such a setup is more efficient for users with less experience. We can also keep your Ubuntu up-to-date on a regular basis when you add our Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do so throughout the VPS order process or at any later time via your billing Control Panel.
