Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
We offer Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server plans and if you need this OS, you are able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition with just a click on the registration page. We offer two editions, to make sure that the hosting server meets the system requirements of the software that you need to install. The full root admission to your server will help you install any other software, because the only pre-installed app will be the Apache web server. You can access the server safely from a console, however if you prefer to use a web interface, you can set up any kind of Control Panel that can run on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you'd like to focus your efforts on your content and not on server management tasks, you are able to add the Managed Services upgrade and we will handle a number of tasks for you, which includes regular Operating System upgrades.
