Ubuntu in VPS

Ubuntu is available with our Linux VPS packages and you can acquire a VPS running it in less than sixty minutes. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are available, so that you can choose the one that you need if the software that you want to run on the server has particular system requirements in this regard. You may also select if your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be set up without a Control Panel, in which case you will have full root access and you will be able to install anything using a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on it, in which case you will have a world wide web interface and all of the necessary web server, MySQL, FTP, e-mail server, etc. software is pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more limited, but this type of installation is more effective for users with less experience. We can also maintain your Ubuntu up-to-date regularly when you add the Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do so during the VPS order process or at any later time from your billing Control Panel.
