Debian is a Linux distribution, that is preffered for desktop machines, yet it has been becoming more popular as a server OS over the last few years as well. It's really stable and risk-free, because fixes are released in a couple of days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a large support community, so if you have any questions or problems with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it comes with, you can contact the developers directly via email using special mailing lists and receive a reply in just 15-20 min. The Debian community supplies the top level of support possible, since all of your questions will be handled by exactly the same people who made Debian in the first place, so they have a thorough knowledge of how their system works. Since the Operating System is absolutely free to use and distribute, no license costs will be added to your web hosting fees and you can change the code files and any additional software that you install without restrictions, so as to optimize the software environment for your web sites. In addition, Debian performs very well on any kind of hardware, because it is light and fast and does not require a lot of memory.

Debian in VPS Servers

There are a few Operating Systems that we offer with our VPS web hosting plans and Debian is one of them, which means that when you'd like to have a server with this OS, you will be able to obtain one in less than one 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 kind of web or offline app that you wish to install on the server. Managing the content on the server can be done 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'll have root-level access, whereas through the Hepsia Control Panel, the root access will have some restrictions, but you'll be able to do everything from your Internet browser using an intuitive web interface, even if you aren't very experienced. When you use the optional Managed Services package that we supply, we'll also keep your Debian OS updated weekly, saving you time and effort.

Debian in Dedicated Servers

32-bit and 64-bit editions of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you'll be able to select all of them with only a click for your new machine, depending on what software environment the applications that you plan to use require for optimal performance. You can also choose whether our Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on the server or whether it should come with no Control Panel at all. The first option is suitable for inexperienced users who need a Debian-powered server, but wish to control it like a shared hosting account, while the second option is suitable for more experienced users who need to have more control, because ‘no Control Panel' means only Debian and the Apache web server software, and no other software set up on the server at all. We'll also save your time and effort with the Managed Services upgrade, as it comes with regular Operating System updates, to ensure that you will have a secure and stable Debian installation.
