When you obtain your server devoid of web hosting Control Panel, the sole piece of software that will be set up on top of Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, which means that you are able to use a console to access the server and to set up a software environment that you choose. If you order your server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll have a web interface with which you can control almost everything as quickly as you control a regular shared account and all essential MySQL, FTP and e-mail server software will be pre-installed, but the root access to your server will be limited.
