Ubuntu in VPS Servers

Ubuntu is available with all of our Linux VPS service and you can buy a VPS running it in just sixty minutes. 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the OS are available, which means that you will be able to choose the one which you need when the software that you would like to run on your server has particular system requirements in this regard. You may also select whether your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be installed with no Control Panel, in which case you will have full root access and you will be able to set up anything using a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on it, in which case you will have an online interface and all of the necessary web server, MySQL, FTP, electronic mail server, etc. software is pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more limited, but such a installation is more effective for users with less experience. We will also keep your Ubuntu up-to-date regularly when you add our 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.
