Ubuntu in VPS Servers

We supply Ubuntu with our VPS hosting plans and based on what requirements your web apps have, you are able to get the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the Operating System with just a few mouse clicks throughout the registration process. If you get your server devoid of website hosting Control Panel, the only piece of software which will be set up on top of Ubuntu will be the Apache web server software, therefore you're able to use a console to access the hosting server and to install a software environment that you choose. If you obtain your server with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will have a world wide web interface with which you'll be able to manage almost everything just as easily as you manage a standard shared account and all of the required MySQL, FTP and e-mail server software will be pre-installed, but the root access to the server is restricted.
