You may also select whether your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be set up without a Control Panel, in which case you'll 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 the required web server, MySQL, FTP, electronic mail server, etc. software is pre-installed.
