You can also select if your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be set up without a Control Panel, in which case you will have full root access and you can set up anything using a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on it, in which case you will have an online interface and all needed web server, MySQL, FTP, electronic mail server, etc. software is pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more limited, but such a installation is more effective for users with less experience.
