We offer Ubuntu with our VPS servers and depending on what requirements your web applications have, you can select the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the Operating System with just a couple of clicks during the order process. If you get your server devoid of hosting Control Panel, the only piece of software that will be installed along with Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, so you'll be able to use a console in order to access the hosting server and to create a software environment of your liking. If you get your server with our Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll have a world wide web interface with which you will be able to manage almost everything as easily as you control an ordinary shared account and all the vital MySQL, FTP and e-mail server software will be pre-installed, but the root access to your server is limited.
