Ubuntu in VPS Web Hosting
With any of our VPS web hosting, you are able to decide on the Ubuntu Operating System on the order page. We recognize the fact that some pieces of software have certain requirements with regard to the OS they can be installed on, and you are able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit edition of Ubuntu. In addition, you can select whether the VPS should feature our Hepsia Control Panel or no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you will find everything you'll need pre-installed - MySQL, email server, FTP, etc. software, and you will be able to make everything via your online browser, but the root access is limited; whereas in the second case, you'll get Ubuntu and the Apache server software only, so you will be able to install anything freely thanks to the full root access that you will be given, yet the server management tasks can be done through a console. Our administrators will watch your VPS and update the Ubuntu installation weekly when you add the optional Managed Services bundle that we offer.

You may also select the software that will operate on your machine, as we will install only the Apache web server software, so the rest can be tailor-made software of your liking. You're able to set up the latter without any problems using a Secure Shell console, as you'll get root-level access and you will get full control of the hosting server.
