You'll also be able to pick from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin website hosting Control Panels - something, that isn't possible with the other Linux distributions. These options will give you the opportunity to decide what you'd like to do with the VPS - to host your sites and to control the whole server as a very powerful account, or to generate many different accounts and give access to others if, for example, you want to start a hosting reseller business.
