Debian is a Linux distribution, that's widespread for desktop computers, yet it has been gaining in popularity as a server Operating System during the last few years as well. It's really dependable and secure, as fixes are released in just a couple of days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a large support community, so if you have any kind of questions or troubles with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it is equipped with, you'll be able to contact the developers right away via email using special e-mail lists and receive a response in 15-20 minutes. The Debian community provides the top level of support possible, as all your questions will be handled by the same people who created Debian in the first place, so they have an in-depth knowledge of how their own system works. Since the Operating System is 100% free to use and distribute, no license costs will be added to your website hosting fees and you will be able to change the program code files and any other software which you install without any restrictions, to optimize the software environment for your websites. What's more, Debian performs very well on any kind of hardware, as it's light and efficient and does not require much memory.
Debian in VPS Servers
When you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the VPS server packages that we offer and choose this Operating System on the registration page. You can select the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release, since we give you the option to pick the more appropriate one, depending on the software that you'd like to install on your server once it is set up. When you are more tech-savvy, you can get a Debian-powered VPS without a Control Panel, so that you'll have full root access and you will be able to manage the content and the software via SSH. If you are less experienced, but you would like to use an application that requires Debian, you can select the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel on the order page and you will be able to manage the entire server like a standard shared hosting account. You can also take advantage of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we offer, since it comes with once a week Operating System updates performed by our administrators, among various other useful things.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You can choose the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with a single click on our order page and according to your choice, we'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS on the machine, to ensure that the software that you will install later will perform in the best possible way. Selecting a server without Control Panel, you will receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you can control everything using a console. A server that is obtained with the Hepsia Control Panel will come with all of the software that you'll need for your Internet sites. Although with the latter option the root access will be restricted, you will be able to manage the server as if it were a shared web hosting account, so 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 our Managed Services upgrade, we will maintain your server and will update its OS every week in order to make sure that you have the most current and most risk-free version.
