Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting
You are able to get Ubuntu with our dedicated server plans, as we supply 32-bit and 64-bit releases of this Operating System. In this way, you will be able to pick the more appropriate of these two, depending on the type of applications which you need to set up and run and on the system requirements they have about the OS. You will have root-level access to the server, which will provide you with full control of the software environment. We'll set up just the Apache web server software, so you'll be able to add anything else you may need, even if it is not related directly to websites, such as a VOIP server, for example. You're able to control everything using a console, however if you would like, you may also set up a website hosting Control Panel, on condition that it's compatible with Ubuntu. When you order our optional Managed Services bundle, we'll maintain your Operating System up-to-date weekly and will make sure that you have the newest software packages for a well-balanced and secure server environment.
