Ubuntu in VPS Web Hosting
We provide Ubuntu with all our VPS web hosting services and based on what system requirements your web apps have, you will be able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the Operating System with just a few clicks throughout the order process. When you get your server devoid of website hosting Control Panel, the sole piece of software that will be set up in addition to Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, which means that you're able to use a console in order to access the hosting server and to create a software environment of your choice. If you get your server with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll have a web interface with which you will be able to control almost everything as easily as you control a regular shared account and all necessary MySQL, FTP and email server software will be pre-installed, yet the root access to your server will be limited.
