Ubuntu in VPS Hosting
If you need an Ubuntu-powered hosting server, you'll be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the Operating System with each virtual private server
package that we provide and everything will be set up within 60 minutes, so you will be able to start using the VPS right away. We offer two different versions since certain programs have specific requirements so as to function efficiently. You will be able to manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in two ways - if you order it with our custom Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will get a web interface and all of the software that is needed for your web sites will be pre-installed; whereas when you order it devoid of Control Panel, you'll get just the OS and the Apache web server software, which means that you will be able to set up other software through Secure Shell. If you choose to add the Managed Services upgrade either throughout the signup process or at any later time, our administrators will monitor your hosting server and will update Ubuntu regularly.

You can also select the software which will run on your machine, since we will set up only the Apache web server software, so everything else can be tailor-made software of your choice. You're able to install the latter without any problems employing a Secure Shell console, because you'll have root-level access and you'll have full control over the hosting server. You are free to install a web hosting Control Panel too and manage some things through a graphical interface, as long as it can work on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things easier, we also offer a Managed Services upgrade, which, among other things, includes Operating System updates.
