Ubuntu in VPS Hosting
We provide Ubuntu with our Linux VPS hosting and based on what system requirements your web applications have, you can get the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the Operating System with just a couple of clicks during the registration process. If you order your server with no hosting Control Panel, the sole software which will be set up on top of Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, thus you're able to use a console to access the website hosting server and to create a software environment of your choice. If you get your server with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will have an online interface with which you're able to control almost everything just as easily as you manage a regular shared account and all of the important MySQL, FTP and e-mail server software are pre-installed, but the root access to your server will be limited. When you don't have a lot of experience, or if you do not plan to waste time on VPS management procedures, you are able to take advantage of our Managed Services upgrade, that features once a week Ubuntu Operating System upgrades.

We can install the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition, in order to meet the system requirements of the apps that you'd like to set up on the server. You can also select the software which will run on your machine, because we will set up only the Apache web server software, so the rest can be tailor-made software of your liking. You're able to set up the latter without any problems by using a Secure Shell console, since you'll have root-level access and you'll have full control over your server. You are free to set up a web hosting Control Panel too and manage some things through a graphical interface, as long as it can work on an Ubuntu-driven machine.
