Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
Ubuntu is one of the OS options that you will find on our order page when you choose to get one of our dedicated servers. We'll install the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition, to match the system requirements of the apps that you want to set up on the server. You may also choose the software which will run on your machine, as we will install only the Apache web server software, so everything else can be custom-made software of your choice. You'll be able to set up the latter without any problems from a Secure Shell console, since you will have root-level access and you will get full control over your server. You can set up a web hosting Control Panel too and control some things through a graphical interface, as long as it can function on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things simpler for you, we also offer a Managed Services upgrade, that, among other things, contains Operating System updates.
