Ubuntu in VPS Hosting
Ubuntu is available with our Linux VPS hosting and you can acquire a VPS running it in less than 1 hour. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are available, so that you can choose the one that you need when the software that you want to run on your website hosting server has specific system requirements regarding this. You may also select if your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be installed without a Control Panel, in which case you'll have full root access and you can install anything through a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on it, in which case you will have a world wide web interface and all the needed web server, MySQL, FTP, mail server, etc. software is pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more restricted, but such a installation is more effective for users with less experience. We will also keep your Ubuntu up-to-date regularly when you add the Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do so during the VPS order process or at any later time through your billing Control Panel.
