Ubuntu in VPS Servers

With any of our VPS plans, you will be able to decide on the Ubuntu OS on the order page. We are aware of the fact that some programs have specific requirements with regard to the Operating System they can be set up on, which means that you will be able to select from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of Ubuntu. Also, you can choose whether the VPS should come with our Hepsia Control Panel or no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you'll find everything you need pre-installed - MySQL, email server, FTP, etc. software, and you can do everything via your web browser, but the root access will be limited; whereas in the second case, you will receive Ubuntu and the Apache server software only, so that you can install anything freely due to the full root access which you will be given, yet the server management tasks can be done using a console. Our administrators can keep track of your VPS and update the Ubuntu setup on a weekly basis when you add the additional Managed Services bundle that we offer.
