We offer Ubuntu with each of our dedicated server packages and if you need this Operating System, you will be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit version with just a click on the registration page. We offer two editions, so as to make sure that the server will meet the system requirements of the software that you'd like to install.

You are able to access the server safely through a console, yet in case you would like to use a web interface, you can install any Control Panel that can run on an Ubuntu-powered machine.
