Also, you can select whether the VPS should come with the Hepsia Control Panel or with no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you will have everything you will need pre-installed - MySQL, electronic mail server, FTP, etc. software, and you will be able to do everything via your web browser, but the root access will be limited; while in the second case, you'll get Ubuntu plus the Apache server software only, which means that you will be able to set up anything freely due to the full root access which you will be given, however the server management tasks can be done through a console.
