Debian is a Linux distribution, that is widely used for desktop machines, however it's been gaining popularity as a server OS over the last couple of years as well. It is really stable and safe, as fixes are released within a couple of days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a large support community, so when you have any kind of questions or problems with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it features, you can easily contact the developers directly via e-mail using special mailing lists and receive a reply in just 15-20 min. The Debian community supplies the best level of support possible, as all of your questions will be handled by exactly the same people that built Debian in the first place, so they have a detailed knowledge of how their own system operates. As the Operating System is absolutely free to use and distribute, no license costs will be included with your hosting fees and you'll be able to customize the program code files and any other software which you install without any restrictions, in order to optimize the software environment for your websites. In addition, Debian performs very well on any kind of hardware, as it is light and fast and doesn't require a lot of memory.

Debian in VPS Web Hosting

You are able to obtain a Debian-powered virtual private server with any of our VPS solutions and you can choose if the version which will be installed throughout the server setup process will be 32-bit or 64-bit. Thus, you'll ensure that the software environment will meet the requirements of the apps which you need to run and that the latter will run efficiently. Throughout the order process, you can also decide if the VPS will come with the Hepsia Control Panel or without Control Panel at all. The first option gives you a user-friendly graphical interface, via that you are able to manage everything related to your web presence using only an Internet browser - files, email accounts, databases, and the like. With no Control Panel at hand, you will have to do everything through a console, but you'll have full root access and you'll be able to set up any kind of software that may not be compatible with Hepsia. In addition, you can add the optional Managed Services package, which includes regular Operating System updates.

Debian in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You'll be able to choose the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with only a single click on our order page and according to your choice, we'll install the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS on the machine, to ensure that the software that you'll install later will work in the optimal way. Selecting a server with no Control Panel, you will receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you will be able to manage everything through a console. A server which is obtained with our Hepsia Control Panel will feature all the software that you may need for your websites. Although with the latter option the root access is limited, you are able to control the server as if it were a shared website hosting account, so you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you have no previous experience with this type of web hosting service. If you purchase our Managed Services upgrade, we'll maintain your server and will update its OS on a weekly basis to ensure that you have the most recent and most risk-free edition.
