Ubuntu in VPS
We supply Ubuntu with all of our Linux VPS and depending on what requirements your web apps have, you can pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the Operating System with only a couple of mouse clicks during the order process. If you obtain your server devoid of hosting Control Panel, the sole software which will be installed along with Ubuntu will be the Apache web server software, which means that you will be able to use a console to access the hosting server and to build a software environment of your liking. If you order your server with our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you'll have a web interface with which you are able to manage almost everything as quickly as you control a standard shared account and all the vital MySQL, FTP and e-mail server software will be pre-installed, but the root access to your server will be limited. In case you don't have a lot experience, or if you do not wish to waste time on VPS management procedures, you're able to take full advantage of our Managed Services upgrade, that includes weekly Ubuntu Operating System upgrades.

We provide Ubuntu with our dedicated server plans and if you need this Operating System, you can choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit version with only a click on the order page. We provide two editions, in order to guarantee that the hosting server meets the requirements of the software that you need to set up. The full root admission to your server will help you install any other software, as the only pre-installed application is the Apache web server.
