Ubuntu in VPS Web Hosting
With all of our Linux VPS web hosting packages, you're able to select the Ubuntu Operating System from the order page. We are aware of the fact that some pieces of software have particular requirements with regard to the OS they can be set up on, and you're able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of Ubuntu. In addition, you can choose whether your VPS should include the Hepsia Control Panel or no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you will get everything you'll need pre-installed - MySQL, electronic mail server, FTP, etc. software, and you're able to make everything from your Internet browser, but the root access will be limited; while in the second case, you will get Ubuntu plus the Apache server software only, which means that you will be able to set up anything freely due to the full root access which you will be given, but the server management tasks can be done using a console. Our sysadmins will watch your VPS and upgrade the Ubuntu installation weekly if you add the additional Managed Services package which we offer.
