Ubuntu in VPS Hosting

You can also select whether your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be set up without a Control Panel, in which case you will have full root access and you'll be able to install anything using a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on it, in which case you will have a web interface and all required web server, MySQL, FTP, e-mail server, etc. software is pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more limited, but this type of installation is more effective for users with less experience. We will also keep your Ubuntu up-to-date regularly if you add our Managed Services upgrade. You will be able to do so throughout the VPS order process or at any later time from your billing Control Panel.
