Also, you can choose if the VPS should come with our Hepsia Control Panel or with 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 will be able to make everything from your online browser, however the root access is limited; whereas in the second case, you will get Ubuntu and the Apache server software only, so that you will be able to set up anything freely because of the full root access which you will be given, yet the server management tasks are done using a console. Our administrators can keep track of your VPS and upgrade the Ubuntu setup weekly when you add the additional Managed Services package that we offer.
