Ubuntu in VPS Hosting

When you need an Ubuntu-powered server, you will be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS with each and every virtual private server plan that we provide and everything will be set up within 1 hour, so you will be able to start using your VPS right away. We supply two different versions since some pieces of software have specific requirements so as to function properly. You will be able to manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in 2 ways - when you order it with our custom-made Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will get a web interface and all of the software that is necessary for your websites will be pre-installed; while when you order it devoid of Control Panel, you'll get just the OS and the Apache web server software, so you'll be able to install additional software using Secure Shell. When you decide to include our Managed Services upgrade either throughout the signup process or at any later time, our administrators will keep an eye on your hosting server and will upgrade Ubuntu routinely.
