Ubuntu in VPS Servers

You may also select if your Ubuntu-powered VPS should be installed with no Control Panel, in which case you will have full root access and you can install anything through a console; or if the Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on it, in which case you will have a web interface and all of the necessary 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 setup is more suitable for users with less experience.
