Ubuntu in VPS Servers
With all of our VPS servers, you can decide on the Ubuntu OS from the order page. We're aware of the fact that some programs have particular requirements with regard to the OS they can be installed on, and you'll be able to select from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of Ubuntu. You can also select whether the VPS should include the Hepsia Control Panel or no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you'll have everything you need pre-installed - MySQL, email server, FTP, etc. software, and you're able to make everything via your online browser, yet the root access is limited; while in the second case, you'll receive Ubuntu as well as the Apache server software only, so you'll be able to install anything freely thanks to the full root access which you'll be given, yet the server management tasks can be performed from a console. Our admins will watch your VPS and upgrade the Ubuntu installation on a weekly basis if you add the optional Managed Services package that we offer.
