Debian is a Linux distribution, that is preffered for desktop computers, yet it's been gaining in popularity as a server OS over the last few years too. It's very stable and secure, because fixes are released in a few days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a vast support community, so when you have any kind of questions or problems with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it is equipped with, you'll be able to contact the developers straight away through e-mail using special e-mail lists and receive a reply in just 15-20 min. The Debian community supplies the top level of support possible, since your questions will be handled by the very same people who created Debian in the first place, so they have a thorough 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 website hosting fees and you'll be able to customize the program code files and any other software which you install with no restrictions, in order to optimize the software environment for your Internet sites. What's more, Debian performs really well on any kind of hardware, as it is light and efficient and doesn't require a lot of memory.
Debian in VPS Servers
There're several Operating Systems that we supply with our VPS plans and Debian is among them, which means that if you need a server with this Operating System, you can get one in under an hour. In addition, we offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS to ensure that the VPS you will obtain will completely cover the system requirements of any web or offline app that you wish to install on the server. Controlling the content on the server can be performed in two ways, based on the choice you make on the order page. Without a Control Panel, you can do everything on your Debian-equipped server through Secure Shell, as you will have root-level access, whereas through the Hepsia Control Panel, the root access will have some limitations, but you'll be able to do everything through your Internet browser using an intuitive web interface, even if you are not very experienced. When you use the optional Managed Services package that we supply, we will also keep your Debian OS up to date weekly, saving you effort and time.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You will be able to select the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server with only a mouse click on our order page and based on your choice, we'll install the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS on the machine, so that the software that you'll install later will perform in the right way. Using a server with no Control Panel, you will get Debian and the Apache web server software and you can control everything through a console. A server that's acquired with our Hepsia Control Panel will come with all the software which you'll need for your websites. Even though with the latter option the root access is limited, you can manage the server as if it were a shared website hosting account, which means that you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you do not have previous experience with this kind of hosting service. If you get the Managed Services upgrade, we'll take care of your server and will update its OS on a weekly basis in order to make sure that you have the latest and most risk-free version.
