Ubuntu in VPS Hosting

We provide Ubuntu with our VPS hosting packages and based on what system requirements your web applications have, you can get the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS with just a couple of clicks throughout the order process. If you order your server devoid of hosting Control Panel, the sole software which will be installed on top of Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, so you are able to use a console in order to access the website hosting server and to build a software environment of your choice. When you order your server with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will have a web interface with which you'll be able to manage almost everything as easily as you manage an ordinary shared account and all of the essential MySQL, FTP and email server software will be pre-installed, however the root access to your server will be limited.
