Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Ubuntu is one of the OS options which you can find on our registration page if you want to get one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting. We can install the 32-bit or the 64-bit release, to meet the system requirements of the apps which you would like to install on the server. You may also choose the software that will run on your machine, since we will install only the Apache web server software, so everything else can be custom-made software of your liking. You'll be able to set up the latter without problems employing a Secure Shell console, because you will get root-level access and you will have full control of the server. You are free to set up a web hosting Control Panel too and manage some things through a graphical interface, as long as it can run on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things simpler for you, we also supply a Managed Services upgrade, that, among other things, includes OS updates.
