In addition, you can choose whether your VPS should include our Hepsia Control Panel or no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you will find everything you'll need pre-installed - MySQL, email server, FTP, etc. software, and you're able to make everything via your online browser, yet the root access will be limited; whereas in the second case, you will receive Ubuntu as well as the Apache server software only, which means that you will be able to set up anything freely thanks to the full root access that you will be given, yet the server management tasks will be done through a console. Our sysadmins will keep track of your VPS and update the Ubuntu installation on a weekly basis when you add the additional Managed Services package that we offer.
