Debian is a Linux distribution, that's widely used for desktop computers, yet it has been gaining popularity as a server OS during the last couple of years as well. It is really dependable and risk-free, due to the fact that fixes are released within a couple of days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a huge support community, so when you have any kind of questions or problems with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it comes with, you can contact the developers without delay via email using special mailing lists and receive a reply in just 15-20 min. The Debian community supplies the top level of support possible, as your questions will be handled by exactly the same people who made Debian in the first place, so they have an exhaustive knowledge of how their own system functions. As the Operating System is 100% free to use and distribute, no license charges will be included with your web hosting fees and you will be able to modify the code files and any additional software that you install without restrictions, in order to optimize the software environment for your sites. Furthermore, Debian performs very well on any hardware, as it is light and quick and doesn't require a lot of memory.
Debian in VPS
You can get 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 can ensure that the software environment will meet the requirements of the apps which you wish to run and that the latter will work correctly. During the order process, you may also choose if the VPS will come with the Hepsia Control Panel or without a Control Panel at all. The first option gives you an easy to navigate graphical interface, through which you're able to manage everything related to your web presence using only a web browser - files, e-mails, databases, and so on. Without a Control Panel at hand, you'll need to make everything through a console, however you will have full root access and you will be able to install any kind of software that may not be compatible with Hepsia. In addition, you can add our optional Managed Services package, that includes weekly Operating System updates.
Debian in Dedicated Hosting
32-bit and 64-bit releases of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you'll be able to pick any of them with just a mouse click for your brand new server, depending on what software environment the applications that you plan to use require for optimal performance. You may also select whether our Hepsia Control Panel should be installed 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 would like to control it like a shared hosting account, whereas the second option is good for more experienced users who wish to have more control, since ‘no Control Panel' stands for only Debian and the Apache web server software, and no other software installed on the server at all. We'll also save your time and effort with our Managed Services upgrade, since it comes with routine Operating System updates, so that you will have a safe and stable Debian installation.
