Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
We provide Ubuntu with our dedicated server plans and if you need this Operating System, you will be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit version with just a click on the registration page. We provide two versions, in order to guarantee that the hosting server will meet the system requirements of the software that you'd like to set up. The full root accessibility to the server will allow you to set up any other software, due to the fact that the only pre-installed application will be the Apache web server. You can access the server securely from a console, yet in case you like better to use a web interface, you are free to install any Control Panel which can run on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you want to focus your efforts on your content and not on server maintenance tasks, you can add our Managed Services upgrade and we will take care of a number of tasks for you, among them regular Operating System upgrades.
