Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting
Ubuntu is among the OS options which you'll find on our registration page when you decide to obtain one of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages. We'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit version, in order to match the system requirements of the applications that you wish to install on the server. You may also select the software which will run on your machine, because we will install only the Apache web server software, so everything else can be tailor-made software of your choice. You're able to install the latter without any problems using a Secure Shell console, because you will receive root-level access and you will have full control of your server.
