Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
You'll be able to get Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server plans, because we offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases of this Operating System. In this way, you will be able to choose the more appropriate of these two, based on the type of apps which you need to set up and run and on the system requirements they have about the Operating System. You'll have root-level access to the server, which provides you with full control over the software environment. We will install just the Apache web server software, so you are able to add everything else you need, even when it is not related directly to Internet sites, such as a VOIP server, for example. You can control everything through a console, but if you would like, you may also set up a hosting Control Panel, provided that it supports Ubuntu. When you order our optional Managed Services bundle, we will keep your OS up-to-date every week and will make sure that you have the most up-to-date software packages for a reliable and secure server environment.
