When you get your server without a website hosting Control Panel, the sole software which will be installed on top of Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, therefore you can use a console in order to access the website hosting server and to build a software environment of your liking. If you get your server with our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will have an online interface with which you will be able to control almost everything as quickly as you control an ordinary shared account and all required MySQL, FTP and email server software are pre-installed, but the root access to the server will be limited.
