Debian is a Linux distribution, that's preffered for desktop machines, yet it has been becoming more popular as a server OS during the last couple of years as well. It's really stable and risk-free, since fixes are released within a couple of days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a large support community, so when you have any kind of questions or issues with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it features, you can contact the developers immediately via email using special mailing lists and receive a response in just 15-20 minutes. The Debian community provides the best level of support possible, as your questions will be handled by exactly the same people who created Debian in the first place, so they have a detailed knowledge of how their system operates. Because the Operating System is 100% free to use and distribute, no license costs will be added to your hosting fees and you can customize the code files and any other software that you install without any restrictions, so as to optimize the software environment for your sites. In addition, Debian performs really well on any hardware, because it's light and quick and doesn't require a lot of memory.
Debian in VPS Hosting
You can acquire a Debian-powered virtual private server with all of our VPS plans and you can choose if the version which will be installed during the server setup process should be 32-bit or 64-bit. This way, you will guarantee that the software environment will match the system requirements of the applications that you wish to run and that the latter will function appropriately. During the order process, you may also decide if the VPS will come with our Hepsia Control Panel or with no Control Panel at all. The first option will provide you with an easy-to-work-with graphical interface, via which you'll be able to manage everything related to your web presence using only an Internet browser - files, email accounts, databases, etcetera. With no Control Panel at hand, you'll need to make everything via a console, however you will have full root access and you can set up any kind of software that may not be compatible with Hepsia. In addition, you can add our optional Managed Services package, which includes weekly Operating System updates.
Debian in Dedicated Web Hosting
You can choose the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with just a click on our registration page and based on your choice, we'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS on your machine, to ensure that the software that you will install later will perform in the optimal way. Choosing a server devoid of Control Panel, you will receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you'll be able to manage everything using a console. A server that is acquired with our Hepsia Control Panel will feature all of the software which you may need for your web sites. Although with the latter option the root access will be limited, you'll be able to manage the server as if it were a shared web hosting account, so that you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you don't have previous experience with this type of hosting service. If you order the Managed Services upgrade, we will maintain your server and will update its OS on a weekly basis so as to make sure that you have the latest and most risk-free edition.
