Ubuntu in VPS Servers
With any of our VPS servers, you can select the Ubuntu Operating System on the order page. We're aware of the fact that some pieces of software have particular requirements in terms of the Operating System they are installed on, so you're able to select from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of Ubuntu. You can also choose if your VPS should come with the Hepsia Control Panel or with no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you will find everything you need pre-installed - MySQL, e-mail server, FTP, etc. software, and you'll be able to make everything through your online browser, however the root access will be limited; whereas in the second case, you'll receive Ubuntu and the Apache server software only, so that you can install anything freely thanks to the full root access which you will be given, however the server management tasks can be performed through a console. Our admins can watch your VPS and update the Ubuntu installation weekly if you add the optional Managed Services bundle that we offer.

You are able to acquire Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server packages, as we provide 32-bit and 64-bit versions of this Operating System. This way, you're able to choose the more appropriate of these two, based on the type of applications which you would like to install and run and on the system requirements they have about the OS. You will have root-level access to the server, which provides you with full control over the software setting. We'll set up just the Apache web server software, therefore you are able to add everything else you will need, even when it is not related directly to web sites, such as a VOIP server, for instance. You will be able to control everything from a console, but if you would like, you can also install a website hosting Control Panel, when it's compatible with Ubuntu. When you order the optional Managed Services bundle, we will maintain your Operating System up-to-date weekly and will ensure that you have the most up-to-date software packages for a stable and risk-free server environment.
