Debian is a Linux distribution, that's preffered for desktop machines, yet it's been becoming more popular as a server Operating System during the last few years too. It's really dependable and protected, due to the fact that fixes are released in just a couple of days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a large support community, so when you have any questions or issues with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it comes with, you will be able to contact the developers right away via electronic mail using special e-mail lists and receive a response in 15-20 min. The Debian community gives you the best level of support possible, as your questions will be handled by exactly the same people who made Debian in the first place, so they have an in-depth knowledge of how their system functions. Because the Operating System is 100% free to use and distribute, no license costs will be included with your web hosting fees and you can change the program code files and any additional software which you install with no restrictions, to optimize the software environment for your websites. What's more, Debian performs very well on any kind of hardware, as it is light and fast and doesn't require much memory.
Debian in VPS Servers
When you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the VPS server packages that we provide and pick this Operating System on the registration page. You can pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release, as we give you the option to select the right one, based on the software which you want to install on your server once it's up and running. When you are more tech-savvy, you can get a Debian-powered VPS with no Control Panel, so that you'll have full root access and you are able to control the content and the software through SSH. If you are less experienced, yet you would like to use software that requires Debian, you are able to select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page and you will be able to manage the entire server like a standard shared hosting account. You can also reap the benefits of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we offer, because it includes weekly Operating System updates done by our admins, among many other useful things.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
32-bit and 64-bit releases of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you'll be able to choose all of them with only a mouse click for your brand new machine, depending on what software environment the applications which you wish to use require for the best performance. You can also choose if our Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on the server or whether it should come with no Control Panel at all. The first option is made for less experienced users who need a Debian-powered server, but wish to control it like a shared website hosting account, while the second option is good for more advanced users who wish to have more control, as ‘no Control Panel' stands for only Debian and the Apache web server software, and no other software installed on the server at all. We can also save you time and effort with the Managed Services upgrade, as it comes with routine Operating System updates, so that you'll have a secure and stable Debian installation.
