Debian is a Linux distribution, which is widely used for desktop computers, but it's been becoming more popular as a server Operating System over the last few years too. It's really dependable and protected, as fixes are released within a couple of days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a huge support community, so when you have any kind of questions or issues with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it features, you can contact the developers immediately through email using special e-mail lists and receive a reply in 15-20 min. The Debian community offers the best level of support possible, since all of your questions will be handled by the same people who made Debian in the first place, so they have a detailed knowledge of how their own system operates. Since the Operating System is 100% free to use and distribute, no license charges will be added to your website hosting fees and you will be able to customize the program code files and any other software that you install with no restrictions, so as to optimize the software environment for your web sites. Furthermore, Debian performs very well on any kind of hardware, as it's light and efficient and does not require a lot of memory.
Debian in VPS Servers
When you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the VPS server solutions that we offer and pick this Operating System on the order page. You will be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release, since we give you the option to choose the right one, based on the software which you would like to install on your server once it is set up. If you're more tech-savvy, you may get a Debian-powered VPS without a Control Panel, so you'll have full root access and you can control the content and the software through SSH. If you are less experienced, but you'd like to use an application that requires Debian, you're able to pick our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel on the order page and you can 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 supply, since it includes weekly Operating System updates done by our admins, among other useful things.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You're able to choose the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server with a single click on our registration page and according to your choice, we'll install the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS on your machine, so that the software that you'll install later will perform in the right way. Choosing a server devoid of Control Panel, you will receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you can control everything through a console. A server which is acquired with our Hepsia Control Panel will feature all the software which you'll need for your sites. Even though with the latter option the root access is limited, you will be able to control the server as if it were a shared website hosting account, therefore you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you have no previous expertise in this kind of website hosting service. If you get the Managed Services upgrade, we'll take care of your server and will update its OS weekly to make sure that you have the latest and most risk-free version.
