Ubuntu in VPS Servers

We offer Ubuntu with our Linux VPS hosting service and depending on what system requirements your web applications have, you can choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS with only a few mouse clicks during the order process. When you order your server without a website hosting Control Panel, the only software which will be set up in addition to Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, thus you're able to use a console to gain access to the server and to install a software environment that you choose. When you get your server with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will have an online interface with which you'll be able to control almost everything as quickly as you control a standard shared account and all essential MySQL, FTP and email server software will be pre-installed, however the root access to the server will be limited.
