Ubuntu in VPS Web Hosting

plan that we offer and everything is set up within 60 minutes, which means that you will be able to start using the VPS right away. We provide two different versions because some pieces of software have particular requirements to function efficiently. You're able to manage an Ubuntu-powered VPS in 2 ways - when you order it with our in-house made Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will receive a world wide web interface and the software that's needed for your websites will be pre-installed; whereas in case you order it without any Control Panel, you will get only the OS and the Apache web server software, which means that you'll be able to set up additional software using Secure Shell. If you decide to include our Managed Services upgrade either throughout the signup process or at any later time, our administrators will keep close track of your server and will upgrade Ubuntu on a regular basis.

and add this OS to your order with a click. You'll be able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of your OS, based on which edition your applications need to function properly and to get the most of your server hardware.
