Ubuntu in VPS Web Hosting
When you need an Ubuntu-powered server, you're able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the Operating System with each virtual private server plan that we supply and everything will be set up within one hour, which means that you are able to start using your VPS without delay. We offer two different versions since certain programs have particular requirements so as to work effectively. You're able to control an Ubuntu-powered VPS in two ways - if you order it with our custom-made Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll receive an online interface and all of the software that's needed for your sites will be pre-installed; while in case you order it devoid of Control Panel, you'll receive just the Operating System and the Apache web server software, which means that you're able to set up other software using Secure Shell. When you decide to add the Managed Services upgrade either during the signup process or at any later time, our admins will keep close track of your hosting server and will update Ubuntu regularly.
