Ubuntu in VPS Servers

We provide Ubuntu with all our VPS hosting plans and based on what system requirements your web applications have, you're able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the Operating System with only a few mouse clicks throughout the order process. If you order your server without a web hosting Control Panel, the sole piece of software that will be installed in addition to Ubuntu will be the Apache web server software, so you will be able to use a console in order to access the hosting server and to create a software environment that you choose. When you order your server with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will have a web interface with which you're able to manage almost everything as easily as you control a standard shared account and all vital MySQL, FTP and email server software are pre-installed, yet the root access to the server is limited. If you don't have much experience, or if you don't plan to waste time on VPS supervision procedures, you can take full advantage of the Managed Services upgrade, that includes once a week Ubuntu Operating System updates.
