Debian is a Linux distribution, that is preffered for desktop computers, but it has been gaining popularity as a server OS during the last few years as well. It's very stable and secure, since fixes are released within a few days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a vast support community, so when you have any questions or problems with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it features, you can contact the developers immediately via electronic mail using special mailing lists and receive a response in 15-20 minutes. The Debian community supplies the top level of support possible, since all your questions will be handled by the same people that made Debian in the first place, so they have a thorough knowledge of how their system operates. Since the Operating System is 100% free to use and distribute, no license costs will be added to your website hosting fees and you can change the program code files and any additional software that you install without any restrictions, so as to optimize the software environment for your web sites. What's more, Debian performs very well on any kind of hardware, because it is light and effective and does not need a lot of memory.
Debian in VPS Servers
You'll be able to choose the Debian Operating System with each VPS server solution that we supply. 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options that you will find on the order page, so you can select the one that will be more suitable for the software that you would like to install and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be set up either without any Control Panel or with our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you have more freedom, considering that you will have full root access and you will be able to make use of the advantages and the full functionality provided by Debian. In the second case, the root access is limited, but you'll be able to manage your online content via a web interface, not a console. In case you do not have a lot of time to take care of your Debian-powered server, or in case you do not have much experience, you are able to add the Managed Services upgrade to your package and our admins will take care of the regular OS updates.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You'll be able to select the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server with just a single click on our registration page and depending on your choice, we'll install the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS on your machine, to ensure that the software that you will install later will work in the right way. Selecting a server devoid of Control Panel, you will receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you can manage everything through a console. A server that's obtained with our Hepsia Control Panel will come with all the software which you may need for your sites. Even though with the latter option the root access is restricted, you'll be able to control the server as if it were a shared website hosting account, thus you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you don't have previous experience with this kind of website hosting service. If you get our Managed Services upgrade, we'll take care of your server and will update its OS weekly so as to ensure that you have the most recent and most safe release.
