Ubuntu in VPS Servers
With all of our VPS web hosting plans, you can decide on the Ubuntu Operating System on the order page. We are aware of the fact that some programs have particular requirements with regard to the Operating System they can be installed on, so you'll be able to select from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of Ubuntu. Also, you can select whether the VPS should come with our Hepsia Control Panel or no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you will get everything you need pre-installed - MySQL, e-mail server, FTP, etc. software, and you can make everything from your online browser, however the root access is limited; whereas in the second case, you will get Ubuntu as well as the Apache server software only, so you'll be able to set up anything freely due to the full root access which you'll be given, yet the server management tasks can be performed through a console. Our admins will monitor your VPS and update the Ubuntu setup on a weekly basis if you add the additional Managed Services package which we offer.

We offer Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server packages and if you need this Operating System, you can choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition with only a click on the order page. We offer two releases, so as to ensure that the server will meet the requirements of the software that you want to install. The full root accessibility to the server will allow you to set up any other software, due to the fact that the only pre-installed application will be the Apache web server.
