Ubuntu in VPS Hosting
If you need an Ubuntu-powered server, you will be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the Operating System with each virtual private server
plan that we offer and everything will be set up within an hour, which means that you'll be able to start using your VPS without delay. We offer two different editions due to the fact that certain pieces of software have specific requirements in order to operate properly. You are able to manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in two ways - if you order it with our in-house built Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll receive a web interface and all the software that's necessary for your Internet sites will be pre-installed; whereas if you order it with no Control Panel, you will get only the Operating System and the Apache web server software, which means that you're able to install additional software through Secure Shell. When you choose to include our Managed Services upgrade either throughout the registration process or at any later time, our administrators will keep an eye on your hosting server and will upgrade Ubuntu on a regular basis.
