Ubuntu in VPS Servers

You may also select if your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be installed without a Control Panel, in which case you will 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 will have an online interface and all of the needed web server, MySQL, FTP, e-mail server, etc. software will be pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more restricted, but this type of setup is more suitable for users with less experience.
