Debian is a Linux distribution, that is widely used for desktop machines, but it has been gaining popularity as a server Operating System over the last few years as well. It's very dependable and safe, because fixes are released in just a few days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a large support community, so if you have any kind of questions or troubles with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it features, you will be able to contact the developers straight away through email using special e-mail lists and receive a reply in 15-20 min. The Debian community offers the top level of support possible, as all of your questions will be handled by the very same people who built Debian in the first place, so they have a detailed knowledge of how their own system functions. Since the Operating System is free to use and distribute, no license charges will be added to your web hosting fees and you will be able to modify the code files and any other software which you install without any restrictions, so as to optimize the software environment for your sites. In addition, Debian performs really well on any hardware, as it's light and fast and does not require much memory.
Debian in VPS Servers
You're able to choose the Debian Operating System with each and every VPS server
solution that we offer. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of the options that you will find on the order page, which means that you can pick the one that will be more suitable for the software that you'd like to set up and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be installed either without any Control Panel or with our custom Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you'll have more freedom, since you will have full root access and you'll be able to make use of the advantages and the full functionality provided by Debian. In the second case, the root access is limited, but you can manage your web content through a web interface, not a console. If you don't have a lot of time to manage your Debian-powered server, or if you do not have a lot of experience, you could add the Managed Services upgrade to your plan and our administrators will handle the regular 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 pick all of them with only a click for your new server, depending on what software environment the applications which you wish to use require for optimal performance. You may also choose whether our Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on the server or whether it should come without Control Panel at all. The first option is suitable for inexperienced users who need a Debian-powered server, yet wish to control it like a shared hosting account, whereas the second option is good for more advanced users who want to have more control, due to the fact that ‘no Control Panel' stands for only Debian and the Apache web server software, but no other software set up on the server at all. We'll also save you time and effort with our Managed Services upgrade, because it features regular Operating System updates, so that you'll have a secure and stable Debian installation.
