Debian is a Linux release, that's widespread for desktop computers, but it's been becoming more popular as a server Operating System over the last few years as well. It's really dependable and secure, because fixes are released within a few days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a large support community, so if you have any questions or troubles with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it includes, you are able to contact the developers directly via e-mail using special e-mail lists and receive a reply in just 15-20 minutes. The Debian community provides the best level of support possible, because your questions will be handled by exactly the same people who built Debian in the first place, so they have a thorough knowledge of how their system functions. Since the Operating System is free to use and distribute, no license costs will be included with your web hosting fees and you'll be able to modify the program code files and any additional software which you install without any restrictions, so as to optimize the software environment for your sites. Furthermore, Debian performs very well on any kind of hardware, as it is light and effective and doesn't need a lot of memory.
Debian in VPS Servers
When you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the VPS server
plans that we provide and pick this Operating System on the order page. You will be able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release, as we give you the option to choose the more appropriate one, depending on the software which you'd like to install on your server once it's up and running. If you're more tech-savvy, you may get a Debian-powered VPS without a Control Panel, so that you will have full root access and you can control the content and the software using SSH. If you are less experienced, yet you'd like to use an application which requires Debian, you are able to choose 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 may also take full advantage of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we supply, since it includes regular Operating System updates done by our admins, among other useful things.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
32-bit and 64-bit versions of Debian are available on our dedicated server
order page and you will be able to choose all of them with only a single click for your brand new server, based on what software environment the applications that you wish to use require for optimal performance. You can also choose if our Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on the server or whether it should come without any Control Panel at all. The first option is made for less experienced users who need a Debian-powered server, but want to manage it like a shared web hosting account, whereas the second option is good for more experienced users who wish to have more control, as ‘no Control Panel' means only Debian and the Apache web server software, and no other software set up on the server at all. We will also save you time and effort with the Managed Services upgrade, since it comes with regular Operating System updates, to ensure that you will have a secure and stable Debian installation.
