Ubuntu in VPS

You may 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'll be able to set up anything using a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on it, in which case you'll have an online interface and all needed web server, MySQL, FTP, electronic mail server, etc. software is pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more restricted, but such a installation is more efficient for users with less experience.
