Ubuntu in VPS

We provide Ubuntu with all our Linux VPS packages and depending on what system requirements your web applications have, you will be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS with just a few clicks during the order process. If you obtain your server without a website hosting Control Panel, the sole piece of software that will be installed on top of Ubuntu will be the Apache web server software, therefore you will be able to use a console in order to access the website hosting server and to build a software environment of your liking. If you acquire your server with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will have an online interface with which you will be able to control almost everything just as easily as you manage a regular shared account and all required MySQL, FTP and email server software will be pre-installed, but the root access to your server is limited. When you don't have much experience, or if you don't wish to waste time on VPS control procedures, you are able to reap the benefits of the Managed Services upgrade, that features regular Ubuntu Operating System updates.
