Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Ubuntu is one of the OS options which you'll find on our order page if you want to get one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages. We can install the 32-bit or the 64-bit version, so as to meet the system requirements of the applications which you wish to set up on the server. You may also select the software that will run on your machine, since we will install only the Apache web server software, so everything else can be tailor-made software of your liking. You are able to install the latter without any problems employing a Secure Shell console, since you will have root-level access and you will have full control of the hosting server. You can set up a website hosting Control Panel too and control some things via a graphical interface, as long as it can function on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things simpler for you, we also offer a Managed Services upgrade, which, among other things, includes OS upgrades.
