Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting
We provide Ubuntu with our dedicated server packages and if you need this OS, you'll be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit release with only a click on the order page. We supply two versions, to ensure that the hosting server will meet the system requirements of the software that you would like to install. The full root admission to your server will enable you to set up various other software, due to the fact that the only pre-installed app is the Apache web server. You will be able to access the server safely through a console, yet in case you like better to use a web interface, you are free to set up any kind of Control Panel which can run on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you need to focus your efforts on the content and not on server maintenance tasks, you are able to add our Managed Services upgrade and we'll handle various tasks for you, among them weekly OS upgrades.
