Ubuntu in VPS Servers
With all of our VPS hosting plans, you can choose the Ubuntu Operating System on the order page. We're aware of the fact that some programs have specific requirements with regard to the OS they're set up on, which means that you can select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit edition of Ubuntu. Also, you can choose whether your VPS should feature our Hepsia Control Panel or no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you will receive everything you'll need pre-installed - MySQL, electronic mail server, FTP, etc. software, and you are able to make everything from your Internet browser, yet the root access is restricted; whereas in the second case, you will get Ubuntu as well as the Apache server software only, so that you are able to install anything freely thanks to the full root access which you will be given, yet the server management tasks will be done from a console. Our system administrators will monitor your VPS and upgrade the Ubuntu setup on a weekly basis if you add the additional Managed Services bundle which we offer.
