Ubuntu in VPS

When you need an Ubuntu-powered server, you will be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS with each and every virtual private server package that we offer and everything will be set up within 60 minutes, which means that you are able to start using the VPS without delay. We offer two different editions since certain programs have certain requirements to work properly. You will be able to manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in 2 ways - if you order it with our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll get an online interface and the software which is required for your web sites will be pre-installed; whereas if you order it devoid of Control Panel, you'll receive only the OS and the Apache web server software, which means that you will be able to install additional software employing Secure Shell. If you choose to include our Managed Services upgrade either during the signup process or at any later time, our admins will keep an eye on your hosting server and will update Ubuntu routinely.
