Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
We offer 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 release with just a click on the registration page. We supply two editions, to ensure that the server matches the system requirements of the software that you need to install. The full root admission to your server will allow you to install various other software, since the only pre-installed app will be the Apache web server. You are able to access the server securely from a console, but in case you would like to use an online interface, you're free to set up any kind of Control Panel which can run on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you wish to focus your efforts on the content and not on server management tasks, you're able to add our Managed Services upgrade and we'll take care of plenty of tasks for you, including weekly OS upgrades.
