Ubuntu in VPS Servers

We offer Ubuntu with all of our Linux VPS plans and depending on what requirements your web apps have, you can get the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the Operating System with just a few mouse clicks during the order process. If you get your server without a website hosting Control Panel, the only software that will be set up in addition to Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, which means that you will be able to use a console to access the hosting server and to install a software environment of your liking. When you obtain your server with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will have an online interface with which you'll be able to control almost everything as easily as you manage a regular shared account and all of the necessary MySQL, FTP and e-mail server software are pre-installed, however the root access to your server is restricted.
