Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

You are able to acquire Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server packages, as we offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases of this Operating System. In this way, you can select the more appropriate of the two, depending on the type of applications which you wish to install and run and on the system requirements they have about the OS. You will have root-level access to the server, which will give you full control over the software environment. We will install just the Apache web server software, which means that you'll be able to add whatever else you will need, even when it is not related directly to sites, such as a VOIP server, for example. You'll be able to manage everything through a console, however if you want, you may also set up a hosting Control Panel, when it's compatible with Ubuntu.
