You may also select whether 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 installed on it, in which case you'll have a world wide web interface and all of the necessary web server, MySQL, FTP, e-mail server, etc. software is pre-installed.
