In addition, you can choose whether the VPS should come with our Hepsia Control Panel or no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you will have everything you need pre-installed - MySQL, e-mail server, FTP, etcetera. software, and you will be able to do everything via your online browser, but the root access is restricted; whereas in the second case, you'll get Ubuntu as well as the Apache server software only, so you will be able to install anything freely because of the full root access which you will be given, yet the server management tasks are done from a console. Our sysadmins can keep track of your VPS and update the Ubuntu installation on a weekly basis if you add the additional Managed Services package that we offer.
