Also, you can choose if your VPS should come with our Hepsia Control Panel or no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you'll receive everything you need pre-installed - MySQL, electronic mail server, FTP, etc. software, and you're able to do everything from your Internet browser, yet the root access is restricted; while in the second case, you will get Ubuntu and the Apache server software only, which means that you're able to install anything freely thanks to the full root access which you will be given, however the server management tasks will be performed using a console. Our sysadmins can watch your VPS and update the Ubuntu installation on a weekly basis when you add the additional Managed Services bundle which we offer.
