Ubuntu in VPS
We offer Ubuntu with our Linux VPS and based on what system requirements your web apps have, you're able to get the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS with only a few clicks throughout the order process. If you order your server devoid of web hosting Control Panel, the only software that will be installed on top of Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, which means that you're able to use a console in order to access the website hosting server and to set up a software environment that you choose. When you acquire your server with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will have a web interface with which you're able to control almost everything as easily as you control a regular shared account and all the necessary MySQL, FTP and e-mail server software will be pre-installed, yet the root access to the server will be restricted.
