Ubuntu in Dedicated Web Hosting

When the apps that you want to run require Ubuntu as well as lots of system resources, you should opt for our Linux dedicated web hosting and add this Operating System to your order with a click. You are able to select between the 32-bit and the 64-bit edition of the Operating System, according to which edition your apps need in order to work properly and to get the most of the server hardware. Since you'll have full root access, you'll have full control over the software environment on the machine and you'll be able to set up anything you would like. The Ubuntu-powered server does not include a website hosting Control Panel, which means that you can manage your content using a Secure Shell console, yet if you want, you can set up a third-party Control Panel and use a graphical interface to take care of your websites.

The upgrade comes with routine updates of your Ubuntu Operating System as well.
