We are aware of the fact that some programs have certain requirements with regard to the Operating System they're set up on, which means that you're able to choose between the 32-bit and the 64-bit edition of Ubuntu. Also, you can select whether the VPS should feature our Hepsia Control Panel or with no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you'll find everything you will need pre-installed - MySQL, email server, FTP, etc. software, and you'll be able to do everything by using your online browser, but the root access will be restricted; whereas in the second case, you'll receive Ubuntu plus the Apache server software only, which means that you'll be able to install anything freely due to the full root access which you'll be given, yet the server management tasks are performed using a console. Our system administrators will watch your VPS and update the Ubuntu setup on a weekly basis if you add the additional Managed Services package that we offer.
