We're aware of the fact that some programs have certain requirements in terms of the Operating System they are installed on, which means that you can choose from the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of Ubuntu. In addition, you can select whether the VPS should feature the Hepsia Control Panel or no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you'll receive everything you'll need pre-installed - MySQL, e-mail server, FTP, etc. software, and you will be able to make everything through your Internet browser, yet the root access will be limited; whereas in the second case, you'll get Ubuntu as well as the Apache server software only, which means that you'll be able to install anything freely because of the full root access that you'll be given, but the server management tasks will be done through a console.
