Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
Ubuntu is one of the Operating System options which you can find on our registration page when you decide to get one of our dedicated servers. We'll install the 32-bit or the 64-bit version, to meet the system requirements of the apps which you need to set up on the server. You may also select the software which will operate on your machine, since we will set up only the Apache web server software, so the rest can be customized software that you choose. You will be able to install the latter without any problems by using a Secure Shell console, because you will receive root-level access and you'll have full control of the server. You are free to install a website hosting Control Panel as well and manage some things through a graphical interface, as long as it can function on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things easier, we also provide a Managed Services upgrade, which, among other things, contains Operating System updates.
