You can also select whether your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be set up with no Control Panel, in which case you'll have full root access and you can set up anything through a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on it, in which case you'll have a web interface and all the required web server, MySQL, FTP, e-mail server, etcetera. software is pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more limited, but this type of installation is more suitable for users with less experience.
