Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers Hosting
We provide Ubuntu with 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 matches the requirements of the software that you need to install. The full root accessibility to the server will help you install any other software, since the only pre-installed app will be the Apache web server. You are able to access the server securely through a console, however in case you like better to use an online interface, you are free to install any kind of Control Panel which can run on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you would like to concentrate your efforts on your content and not on server management tasks, you are able to add our Managed Services upgrade and we will take care of various tasks for you, including once a week Operating System upgrades.
