Ubuntu in VPS Servers

We offer Ubuntu with our VPS hosting plans and based on what system requirements your web apps have, you can pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS with just a couple of clicks throughout the registration process. When you order your server without a website hosting Control Panel, the sole piece of software that will be set up on top of Ubuntu will be the Apache web server software, which means that you'll be able to use a console in order to access the website hosting server and to set up a software environment of your choice. If you get your server with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will have a web interface with which you're able to manage almost everything as easily as you manage a regular shared account and all of the essential MySQL, FTP and e-mail server software are pre-installed, yet the root access to your server will be limited.
