You can also select if your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be installed with no Control Panel, in which case you'll have full root access and you will be able to set up anything through a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on it, in which case you'll have an online interface and all the necessary web server, MySQL, FTP, electronic mail server, etc. software will be pre-installed. The root access in the second case will be more limited, but this type of setup is more effective for users with less experience.
