Debian is a Linux release, that is preffered for desktop machines, but it's been gaining popularity as a server OS over the last couple of years as well. It is very dependable and risk-free, since fixes are released in just a few days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a large support community, so if you have any kind of questions or problems with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it comes with, you are able to contact the developers right away through e-mail using special e-mail lists and receive a reply in 15-20 min. The Debian community gives you the top level of support possible, since 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. As the Operating System is absolutely free to use and distribute, no license costs will be added to your website hosting fees and you'll be able to modify the program code files and any other software that you install with no restrictions, in order to optimize the software environment for your websites. In addition, Debian performs really well on any hardware, as it's light and fast and does not need much memory.
Debian in VPS Servers
You can pick the Debian Operating System with each and every VPS server plan that we offer. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are among the options that you will find on the order page, so you can pick 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 custom Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you'll have more freedom, because you will have full root access and you will be able to make use of the advantages and the full functionality offered by Debian. In the second case, the root access will be restricted, however you are able to control your website content via a web interface, not a console. In case you don't have a lot of time to manage your Debian-powered server, or if you don't have much experience, you could add the Managed Services upgrade to your package and our administrators will take care of the regular OS updates.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You'll be able to pick the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server with just a mouse click on our registration page and based on your choice, we'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS on your machine, so that the software that you'll install later will perform in the best way. Picking a server without Control Panel, you will receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you can manage everything through a console. A server that is ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel will feature all of the software that you may need for your Internet sites. Although with the latter option the root access is restricted, you are 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 have no previous expertise in this kind of web hosting service. When you purchase the Managed Services upgrade, we will maintain your server and will update its OS on a weekly basis so as to ensure that you have the most recent and most secure release.
