Debian is a Linux release, which is widely used for desktop computers, however it has been becoming more popular as a server Operating System over the last few years too. It is very dependable and protected, since fixes are released in a few days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a vast support community, so if you have any questions or problems with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it includes, you'll be able to contact the developers directly through e-mail using special mailing lists and receive a reply within 15-20 min. The Debian community provides the top level of support possible, as all your questions will be handled by the very same people who built Debian in the first place, so they have an exhaustive knowledge of how their own system operates. Since the Operating System is free to use and distribute, no license costs will be added to your website hosting fees and you will be able to change the code files and any other software which you install with no restrictions, so as to optimize the software environment for your websites. What's more, Debian performs really well on any hardware, because it is light and fast and doesn't need much memory.
Debian in VPS Servers
You're able to choose the Debian Operating System with each and every VPS server
plan that we provide. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are among the options that you can find on the order page, which means that you can pick the one that will be more suitable for the software that you would like to install and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be set up either with no Control Panel or with our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you have more freedom, as you will have full root access and you are able to make use of the advantages and the full functionality supplied by Debian. In the second case, the root access is restricted, however you're able to manage your web content through a web interface, not a console. In case you do not have much time to control your Debian-powered server, or in case you do not have much experience, you could add the Managed Services upgrade to your package and our administrators will take care of the weekly OS updates.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
32-bit and 64-bit versions of Debian are available on our dedicated server
order page and you can choose all of them with just a single click for your brand new machine, based on what software environment the applications that you want to use require for the best performance. You can also choose if our Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on the server or whether it should come without a Control Panel at all. The first option is suitable for less experienced users who need a Debian-powered server, yet want to manage it like a shared web hosting account, whereas the second option is good for more advanced users who wish to have more control, because ‘no Control Panel' stands for only Debian and the Apache web server software, and no other software set up on the server whatsoever. We will also save you time and effort with the Managed Services upgrade, as it comes with routine Operating System updates, to ensure that you will have a secure and stable Debian installation.
