Debian is a Linux distribution, which is widespread for desktop computers, yet it has been gaining popularity as a server OS over the last few years as well. It's really dependable and protected, due to the fact that fixes are released within a couple of days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a vast support community, so if you have any kind of questions or troubles with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it is equipped with, you'll be able to contact the developers straight away via electronic mail using special mailing lists and receive a reply in 15-20 min. The Debian community provides the top level of support possible, because all your questions will be handled by the very same people that built Debian in the first place, so they have an in-depth knowledge of how their system functions. Since the Operating System is 100% free to use and distribute, no license charges will be added to your hosting fees and you can modify the program code files and any other software that you install without restrictions, in order to optimize the software environment for your web sites. Furthermore, Debian performs really well on any hardware, as it's light and quick 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 supply and select this Operating System on the order page. You can choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release, as we give you the option to pick the more appropriate one, according to the software which you would like to install on your server once it is set up. If you are more tech-savvy, you may get a Debian-powered VPS with no Control Panel, and you will have full root access and you're able to manage the content and the software via SSH. If you are less experienced, yet you'd like to use an application which requires Debian, you'll be able to pick our Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page and you can manage the whole server like a standard shared hosting account. In addition, you can reap the benefits of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we offer, as it includes weekly Operating System updates done by our administrators, among many other useful things.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You'll be able to select the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with only a single click on our order page and according to your choice, we'll install the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS on your machine, to ensure that the software that you'll install later will perform in the best possible way. Choosing a server devoid of Control Panel, you'll 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 include all of the software which you'll need for your websites. Though with the latter option the root access is limited, you're able to control the server as if it were a shared hosting account, which means that you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you don't have previous experience with this kind of web hosting service. When you buy the Managed Services upgrade, we'll maintain your server and will update its OS weekly so as to make sure that you have the most recent and most safe version.
