Debian is a Linux distribution, which is preffered for desktop machines, yet it's been gaining in popularity as a server OS over the last few years as well. It is really dependable and safe, because fixes are released in just a couple of days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a vast support community, so if you have any questions or troubles with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it is equipped with, you'll be able to contact the developers straight away through e-mail using special mailing lists and receive a reply in just 15-20 minutes. The Debian community provides the top level of support possible, since all of your questions will be handled by exactly the same people that created Debian in the first place, so they have a thorough knowledge of how their system operates. Because the Operating System is 100% free to use and distribute, no license costs will be included with your hosting fees and you will be able to customize the code files and any additional software that you install with no restrictions, to optimize the software environment for your Internet sites. In addition, Debian performs really well on any kind of hardware, because it is light and efficient and does not need a lot of memory.

Debian in VPS Servers

You can obtain a Debian-powered VPS server with any of our VPS solutions and you'll be able to choose if the version that will be installed throughout the server setup process will be 32-bit or 64-bit. Thus, you will ensure that the software environment will match the requirements of the apps which you want to run and that the latter will run properly. Throughout the order process, you may also decide whether the VPS will come with our Hepsia Control Panel or without any Control Panel at all. The first option will provide you with an intuitive graphical interface, via that you can manage everything related to your web presence using only a web browser - files, email addresses, databases, etcetera. Without Control Panel at hand, you will have to do everything via a console, yet you'll have full root access and you can install any software that may not be compatible with Hepsia. You can also add the optional Managed Services package, which includes weekly Operating System updates.

Debian in Dedicated Servers

You will be able to choose the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with just a 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, to ensure that the software that you will install later will work in the very best way. With a server devoid of Control Panel, you'll receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you will be able to manage everything using a console. A server which is acquired with the Hepsia Control Panel will feature all of the software which you will need for your web sites. Though with the latter option the root access will be limited, you will be able to manage the server as if it were a shared hosting account, so that you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you do not have previous experience with this kind of hosting service. If you buy our Managed Services upgrade, we will maintain your server and will update its OS weekly in order to make sure that you have the latest and most secure edition.
