Debian is a Linux distribution, which is widespread for desktop computers, but it has been gaining in popularity as a server Operating System over the last few years as well. It is very dependable and safe, as fixes are released in just a couple of days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a large support community, so when you have any questions or troubles with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it comes with, you will be able to contact the developers directly through electronic mail using special e-mail lists and receive a response in just 15-20 minutes. The Debian community provides the best level of support possible, since 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 system works. Because the Operating System is free to use and distribute, no license charges will be included with your web hosting fees and you will be able to customize the program code files and any other software which you install with no restrictions, so as 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 does not need a lot of memory.
Debian in VPS Servers
There are several Operating Systems that we supply with our VPS hosting plans and Debian is one of them, which means that if you need a server with this Operating System, you will be able to have one in under 1 hour. We also offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS to make sure that the VPS you will receive will completely cover the system requirements of any kind of web or offline application which you intend to install on the server. Managing the content on the server can be performed in two ways, depending on the choice you make on the order page. With no Control Panel, you can do everything on your Debian-equipped server through Secure Shell, as you'll have root-level access, while using the Hepsia Control Panel, the root access will have certain limitations, but you will be able to do everything through your web browser using a user-friendly web interface, even if you aren't very experienced. Using the optional Managed Services package which we offer, we will also keep your Debian OS up to date weekly, saving you effort and time.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You can pick the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server with a mouse click on our order page and according to your choice, we'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS on the machine, so that the software that you will install later will perform in the optimal way. Choosing a server with no Control Panel, you will get Debian and the Apache web server software and you will be able to control everything through a console. A server that's acquired with our Hepsia Control Panel will come with all of the software that you will need for your web sites. Although with the latter option the root access will be restricted, you'll be able to manage the server as if it were a shared web hosting account, which means that you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you don't have previous experience with this type of website hosting service. When you buy the Managed Services upgrade, we'll take care of your server and will update its OS every week to make sure that you have the most current and most safe version.
