Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
We supply Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server packages and if you need this Operating System, you are able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit version with just a click on the order page. We provide two releases, in order to ensure that the hosting server meets the system requirements of the software that you need to install. The full root admission to your server allows you to install any other software, because the only pre-installed app will be the Apache web server. You're able to access the server safely through a console, but if you would like to use an online interface, you are free to set up any 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're able to add the Managed Services upgrade and we'll handle various tasks for you, which includes once a week OS upgrades.
