Ubuntu in Dedicated Hosting
We provide Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server packages and if you need this OS, you will be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit version with only a click on the order page. We provide two versions, so as to make sure that the server meets the system requirements of the software that you'd like to install. The full root admission to your server allows you to install any other software, since the only pre-installed application will be the Apache web server. You'll be able to access the server safely using a console, but in case you prefer to use a web interface, you're free to set up any kind of Control Panel that can run on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you need to focus your efforts on your content and not on server maintenance tasks, you can add the Managed Services upgrade and we'll take care of various tasks for you, which includes weekly Operating System upgrades.
