Ubuntu in Dedicated Hosting
Ubuntu is among the Operating System options that you'll find on our registration page if you choose to get one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages. We can install the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition, in order to satisfy the system requirements of the apps that you want 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 software of your liking. You can set up the latter without any problems employing a Secure Shell console, because you'll get root-level access and you'll have full control of the hosting server. You can set up a website hosting Control Panel too and manage some things from a graphical interface, as long as it can work on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things simpler for you, we also supply a Managed Services upgrade, that, among other things, features Operating System upgrades.
