Ubuntu in VPS Servers

We supply Ubuntu with all of our Linux VPS servers and depending on what requirements your web apps have, you'll be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the Operating System with only a few clicks during the registration process. If you get your server with no web hosting Control Panel, the sole piece of software that will be installed on top of Ubuntu will be the Apache web server software, thus you will be able to use a console to gain access to the server and to install a software environment of your choice. When you order your server with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will have an online interface with which you're able to control almost everything just as easily as you control an ordinary shared account and all necessary MySQL, FTP and email server software are pre-installed, however the root access to your server will be restricted. In case you don't have a lot of experience, or in case you don't plan to waste time on VPS supervision procedures, you can take full advantage of the Managed Services upgrade, which includes weekly Ubuntu Operating System upgrades.

We can set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit release, to match the system requirements of the apps which you wish to set up on the server. You may also choose the software which will run on your machine, because we will set up only the Apache web server software, so all else can be custom software of your choice.

You can set up a website hosting Control Panel as well and control some things through a graphical interface, as long as it can function on an Ubuntu-driven machine.
