Ubuntu in VPS Web Hosting
We provide Ubuntu with all of our VPS web hosting
and depending on what system requirements your web applications have, you'll be able to get the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the Operating System with just a couple of clicks throughout the registration process. If you obtain your server without a web hosting Control Panel, the only software which will be installed along with Ubuntu will be the Apache web server software, so you're able to use a console to access the hosting server and to build a software environment of your choice. When you order your server with our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will have an online interface with which you are able to control almost everything just as easily as you manage an ordinary shared account and all the vital MySQL, FTP and email server software will be pre-installed, but the root access to the server will be restricted. When you don't have a lot of experience, or if you do not wish to waste time on VPS supervision procedures, you'll be able to take full advantage of the Managed Services upgrade, which includes weekly Ubuntu Operating System updates.
