Ubuntu in VPS Hosting

Ubuntu is available with all our Linux VPS hosting and you can acquire a VPS running it in less than sixty minutes. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are available, so you can pick the one that you need when the software that you want to run on the website hosting server has specific system requirements in this regard. You may also select if your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be installed without a Control Panel, in which case you will have full root access and you can install anything through a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on it, in which case you'll have a world wide web interface and all needed web server, MySQL, FTP, mail server, etc. software will be pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more limited, but this type of setup is more suitable 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 using your billing Control Panel.
