Debian is a Linux distribution, that's preffered for desktop computers, however it's been gaining popularity as a server Operating System over the last couple of years too. It is very stable and risk-free, as fixes are released in a few days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a large support community, so if you have any questions or troubles with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it includes, you're able to contact the developers immediately via e-mail using special mailing lists and receive a response in 15-20 minutes. The Debian community offers the best level of support possible, as all of your questions will be handled by the same people that built Debian in the first place, so they have a detailed knowledge of how their own system operates. As the Operating System is free to use and distribute, no license charges will be included with your website hosting fees and you will be able to change the program code files and any other software which you install with no restrictions, so as to optimize the software environment for your sites. In addition, Debian performs very well on any kind of hardware, because it's light and effective and does not require much memory.
Debian in VPS Servers
You're able to choose the Debian Operating System with each VPS server solution that we offer. 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options that you'll find on the order page, so you can pick the one that will be more suitable for the software that you'd like to install and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be set up either with no Control Panel or with our tailor-made Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you will have more freedom, considering that you will have full root access and you can take advantage of the advantages and the full functionality offered by Debian. In the second case, the root access is limited, however you can control your world wide web content through a web interface, not a console. If you don't have much time to control your Debian-powered server, or in case you don't have a lot of experience, you are able to add the Managed Services upgrade to your plan and our administrators will take care of the weekly OS updates.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You'll be able to pick the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server with a single click on our order page and depending on your choice, we will install the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS on the machine, so that the software that you'll install later will perform in the very best way. Selecting a server without any Control Panel, you will receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you can manage everything using a console. A server that's ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel will come with all of the software which you'll need for your websites. Although with the latter option the root access is limited, you can control the server as if it were a shared web hosting account, thus you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you do not have previous experience with this type 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 so as to ensure that you have the most current and most risk-free release.
