Debian is a Linux distribution, which is preffered for desktop computers, however it's been gaining popularity as a server OS during the last few years as well. It's very stable and secure, because fixes are released in just a couple of days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a large support community, so when you have any kind of questions or troubles with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it is equipped with, you are able to contact the developers directly through e-mail using special e-mail lists and receive a reply within 15-20 minutes. The Debian community gives you the best level of support possible, because all your questions will be handled by exactly the same people who built Debian in the first place, so they have a detailed knowledge of how their system operates. Since the Operating System is 100% free to use and distribute, no license charges will be included with your web hosting fees and you'll be able to change the code files and any other software that you install with no restrictions, to optimize the software environment for your Internet sites. Furthermore, Debian performs really well on any kind of hardware, as it's light and effective and does not need a lot of memory.
Debian in VPS Servers
If you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the VPS server packages that we supply and choose this Operating System on the registration page. You will be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version, as we give you the option to pick the more appropriate one, according to the software that you would like to install on your server once it is up and running. If you are more tech-savvy, you can get a Debian-powered VPS without a Control Panel, so you'll have full root access and you can manage the content and the software through SSH. In case you are less experienced, but you'd like to use an application that requires Debian, you can pick our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel on the order page and you can manage the whole server like a standard shared hosting account. You may also take full advantage of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we offer, since it features regular Operating System updates done by our administrators, among many other useful things.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
Each and every dedicated server that we offer can be installed with Debian and we will test the program environment in depth before we hand over the machine so as to make sure that it will perform properly. You are able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release during the sign-up process, so that the apps which you install will be able to get the maximum out of your server. We will also keep your Operating System up-to-date when you add the additional Managed Services package to your plan. If you acquire your Debian-driven server without a hosting Control Panel, you can do anything you want with your machine and you'll have full root-level access, yet you'll need to be more skillful, because all the tasks will be performed using a Secure Shell console. If you acquire your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll receive a web interface, via which you will be able to manage domains, files, databases, etcetera, and this might be a better option in case you aren't very experienced, and a specific application that you intend to use requires Debian. You'll have access to your Hepsia-equipped server through SSH as well, but the things that you can do will be limited.
