Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
We provide Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server
plans and if you need this OS, you're able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit version with only a click on the registration page. We provide two editions, in order to guarantee that the server will match the system requirements of the software that you want to set up. The full root admission to the server allows you to install any other software, due to the fact that the only pre-installed application is the Apache web server. You will be able to access the server securely using a console, yet if you like better to use a world wide web interface, you're free to set up any kind of Control Panel that can function on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you would like to concentrate your efforts on your content and not on server management tasks, you'll be able to add the Managed Services upgrade and we'll handle various tasks for you, including once a week OS upgrades.
