Ubuntu in VPS Servers
When you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you are able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the Operating System with each VPS server package that we provide and everything will be set up within one hour, so you can start using the VPS without delay. We offer two different editions because some pieces of software have certain requirements so as to operate effectively. You'll be able to control an Ubuntu-powered VPS in 2 ways - if you order it with our in-house made Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will get a world wide web interface and all the software that is needed for your websites will be pre-installed; while when you order it devoid of Control Panel, you'll receive just the OS and the Apache web server software, so you'll be able to install other software employing Secure Shell. When you choose to add our Managed Services upgrade either during the registration process or at any later time, our admins will keep close track of your server and will upgrade Ubuntu on a regular basis.
