Debian is a Linux distribution, that's widely used for desktop machines, however it's been gaining popularity as a server OS over the last couple of years too. It is really stable and secure, since fixes are released in a couple of days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a large support community, so when you have any kind of questions or issues with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it comes with, you can easily contact the developers without delay through e-mail using special mailing lists and receive a response within 15-20 min. The Debian community provides the top level of support possible, as all of your questions will be handled by the same people that made Debian in the first place, so they have an exhaustive knowledge of how their system operates. Since the Operating System is 100% free to use and distribute, no license charges will be added to your hosting fees and you'll be able to modify the program code files and any other software which you install without any restrictions, so as to optimize the software environment for your websites. In addition, Debian performs very well on any hardware, because it's light and fast and does not need a lot of memory.
Debian in VPS Web Hosting
You're able to choose the Debian Operating System with each and every virtual private server plan that we offer. 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 is more suitable for the software that you would like to install and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be installed either devoid of Control Panel or with our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you will have more freedom, because you will have full root access and you're able to make use of the advantages and the full functionality provided by Debian. In the second case, the root access will be restricted, but you'll be able to control your world wide web content through a web interface, not a console. In case you do not have much time to take care of your Debian-powered server, or in case you don't have much experience, you are able to add the Managed Services upgrade to your package and our admins will handle the regular OS updates.
Debian in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You are able to choose the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server with just a click on our order page and according to your choice, we'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS on the machine, so that the software that you'll install later will work in the optimal way. With a server without any Control Panel, you'll get Debian and the Apache web server software and you'll be able to manage everything using a console. A server that is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel will come with all of the software which you may need for your Internet sites. Though with the latter option the root access will be limited, you will be able to control the server as if it were a shared hosting account, therefore you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you don't have previous expertise in this type of hosting service. If you get the Managed Services upgrade, we'll take care of your server and will update its OS every week so as to ensure that you have the latest and most safe version.
