Ubuntu in VPS Hosting

We recognize the fact that some pieces of software have particular requirements with regard to the Operating System they're set up on, and you'll be able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of Ubuntu. In addition, you can select if the VPS should include the Hepsia Control Panel or with no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you'll find everything you will need pre-installed - MySQL, e-mail server, FTP, etc. software, and you're able to do everything by using your Internet browser, yet the root access is limited; whereas in the second case, you'll receive Ubuntu and the Apache server software only, which means that you're able to install anything freely due to the full root access which you'll be given, but the server management tasks are performed from a console. Our admins can monitor your VPS and upgrade the Ubuntu installation weekly when you add the optional Managed Services bundle that we offer.
