Ubuntu in VPS Servers
Ubuntu is available with our VPS servers and you can buy a VPS running it in just 1 hour. 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the OS are available, which means that you'll be able to pick the one that you need when the software that you want to run on the server has specific system requirements in this regard. You can also select if your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be set up 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'll have a web interface and all the needed web server, MySQL, FTP, mail server, etcetera. software will be pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more limited, but this type of setup is more effective for users with less experience. We can also maintain your Ubuntu up-to-date regularly if you add our Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do this during the VPS order process or at any later time via your billing Control Panel.
