Ubuntu in VPS

Ubuntu is available with our Linux VPS and you can buy a VPS running it in less than one hour. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are available, so that you are able to choose the one which you need when the software that you wish 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 set up without a Control Panel, in which case you'll have full root access and you can set up anything using a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on it, in which case you will have an online interface and all required web server, MySQL, FTP, electronic mail server, etc. software will be pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more restricted, 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 from your billing Control Panel.
