Debian is a Linux distribution, which is widespread for desktop computers, but it's been becoming more popular as a server OS during the last few years too. It is really dependable and secure, due to the fact that fixes are released within a few days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a vast support community, so if you have any questions or issues with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it features, you will be able to contact the developers without delay via email using special mailing lists and receive a reply within 15-20 min. The Debian community supplies the top level of support possible, as all of your questions will be handled by the same people who built Debian in the first place, so they have an in-depth knowledge of how their own system functions. Since the Operating System is absolutely 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 which you install with no restrictions, in order to optimize the software environment for your Internet sites. In addition, Debian performs very well on any hardware, because it is light and fast and doesn't require a lot of memory.
Debian in VPS Servers
If 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 will be able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release, since we give you the option to pick the more appropriate one, based on the software that you would like to install on your server once it's set up. When you're more tech-savvy, you can get a Debian-powered VPS with no Control Panel, and you'll have full root access and you will be able to manage the content and the software through SSH. If you are less experienced, yet you'd like to use an app which requires Debian, you'll be able to choose the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel on the order page and you'll be able to manage the entire server like a standard shared hosting account. In addition, you can take full advantage of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we offer, because it includes once a week Operating System updates performed by our admins, among many other useful things.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You are able to pick the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server with only a single click on our order page and according to your choice, we'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS on the machine, so that the software that you will install later will perform in the optimal way. Using a server devoid of Control Panel, you will receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you'll be able to control everything using a console. A server which is ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel will include all the software that you'll need for your Internet sites. Even though with the latter option the root access is limited, you will be able to manage the server as if it were a shared hosting account, thus you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you have no previous experience with this kind of web hosting service. If you purchase the Managed Services upgrade, we will maintain your server and will update its OS weekly to make sure that you have the most current and most safe version.
