We supply two versions, in order to ensure that the server will meet the system requirements of the software that you'd like to set up. The full root access to the server allows you to install any other software, due to the fact that the only pre-installed application is the Apache web server. You'll be able to access the server safely using a console, however if you like better to use a web interface, you can set up any Control Panel that can run on an Ubuntu-powered machine.
