Also, you can select whether the VPS should come with our Hepsia Control Panel or no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you'll have everything you will need pre-installed - MySQL, e-mail server, FTP, etc. software, and you can make everything by using your web browser, but the root access will be limited; whereas in the second case, you will receive Ubuntu and the Apache server software only, so you are able to install anything freely because of the full root access that you'll be given, however the server management tasks will be performed from a console. Our admins can monitor your VPS and update the Ubuntu installation on a weekly basis if you add the additional Managed Services package which we offer.
