Also, you can choose whether your VPS should feature our Hepsia Control Panel or no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you will receive everything you'll need pre-installed - MySQL, electronic mail server, FTP, etc. software, and you are able to make everything from your Internet browser, yet the root access is restricted; whereas in the second case, you will get Ubuntu as well as the Apache server software only, so that you are able to install anything freely thanks to the full root access which you will be given, yet the server management tasks will be done from a console.
