In addition, you can choose whether the VPS should feature our Hepsia Control Panel or no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you'll get everything you will need pre-installed - MySQL, electronic mail server, FTP, etc. software, and you can do everything through your Internet browser, yet the root access is restricted; while in the second case, you'll get Ubuntu as well as the Apache server software only, which means that you are able to set up anything freely thanks to the full root access which you will be given, however the server management tasks can be performed using a console.
