Ubuntu in VPS Servers
With any of our VPS servers, you can pick the Ubuntu Operating System on the order page. We're aware of the fact that some pieces of software have particular requirements in terms of the Operating System they are installed on, which means that you can choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of Ubuntu. You can also choose whether your VPS should feature the Hepsia Control Panel or no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you will find everything you will need pre-installed - MySQL, electronic mail server, FTP, etc. software, and you can do everything through your web browser, but the root access is limited; whereas in the second case, you'll receive Ubuntu as well as 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 are performed using a console. Our sysadmins will watch your VPS and upgrade the Ubuntu installation on a weekly basis if you add the additional Managed Services package which we offer.
