Debian is a Linux release, that is widely used for desktop machines, yet it has been becoming more popular as a server Operating System over the last few years as well. It is very dependable and secure, due to the fact that fixes are released within a few days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a large support community, so if you have any kind of questions or issues with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it is equipped with, you'll be able to contact the developers immediately via e-mail using special mailing lists and receive a response in 15-20 minutes. The Debian community offers the top level of support possible, since your questions will be handled by the same people that built Debian in the first place, so they have a detailed knowledge of how their own system works. As the Operating System is free to use and distribute, no license charges will be added to your website hosting fees and you'll be able to modify the program code files and any additional software that you install without any restrictions, in order to optimize the software environment for your Internet sites. In addition, Debian performs very well on any kind of hardware, as it's light and effective and doesn't need much memory.
Debian in VPS Servers
You'll be able to acquire a Debian-powered VPS server with any of our VPS plans and you can choose if the version which will be installed throughout the server setup process should be 32-bit or 64-bit. In this way, you can make sure that the software environment will meet the system requirements of the applications that you wish to run and that the latter will function correctly. During the order process, you may also decide whether the VPS will come with our Hepsia Control Panel or without Control Panel at all. The first option provides you with a user-friendly graphical interface, via that you can control everything related to your world wide web presence using only a web browser - files, emails, databases, etcetera. With no Control Panel at hand, you'll need to do everything via a console, however you'll have full root access and you'll be able to set up any software that may not be compatible with Hepsia. You may also add the optional Managed Services package, that includes weekly Operating System updates.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
32-bit and 64-bit editions of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you can choose any of them with just a mouse click for your brand new server, depending on what software environment the apps that you plan to use require for top notch performance. You may also choose whether our Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on the server or whether it should come without a Control Panel at all. The first option is suitable for inexperienced users who need a Debian-powered server, yet would like to control it like a shared website hosting account, while the second option is suitable for more experienced users who need to have more control, because ‘no Control Panel' means only Debian and the Apache web server software, and no other software set up on the server whatsoever. We'll also save you time and effort with the Managed Services upgrade, because it comes with routine Operating System updates, to ensure that you will have a safe and stable Debian installation.
