Ubuntu in VPS

Ubuntu is available with all our Linux VPS services and you can purchase a VPS running it in just 1 hour. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are available, so you will be able to choose the one that you need if the software that you wish to run on the web hosting server has particular system requirements in this regard. You can also select if 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 using a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on it, in which case you will have a world wide web interface and all the needed web server, MySQL, FTP, e-mail server, etcetera. software is pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more limited, but this type of setup is more efficient for users with less experience. We will also keep your Ubuntu up-to-date on a regular basis if you add the Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do this during the VPS order process or at any later time from your billing Control Panel.
