Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

You're able to obtain Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server packages, considering that we provide 32-bit and 64-bit releases of this Operating System. Thus, you'll be able to pick the more appropriate of the two, based on the type of apps that you wish to install and run and on the system requirements they have about the Operating System. You will have root-level access to the server, which provides you with full control of the software environment. We will set up just the Apache web server software, so you are able to add anything else you'll need, even when it's not related directly to websites, such as a VOIP server, for example. You can manage everything through a console, yet if you would like, you can also install a hosting Control Panel, as long as it is compatible with Ubuntu. If you order the optional Managed Services bundle, we will keep your OS up-to-date every week and will make sure that you have the newest software packages for a well-balanced and secure server environment.
