Debian is a Linux distribution, which is widespread for desktop computers, but it has been gaining in popularity as a server OS during the last couple of years too. It's really stable and protected, because fixes are released in a couple of days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a huge support community, so if you have any questions or troubles with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it includes, you're able to contact the developers right away via electronic mail using special e-mail lists and receive a response in 15-20 minutes. The Debian community gives you the top level of support possible, since all your questions will be handled by the very same people who created Debian in the first place, so they have an exhaustive knowledge of how their system works. As the Operating System is 100% free to use and distribute, no license costs will be included with your hosting fees and you can customize the code files and any additional software which you install without any restrictions, in order to optimize the software environment for your sites. In addition, Debian performs really well on any kind of hardware, because it is light and effective and does not require a lot of memory.
Debian in VPS Servers
When you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the VPS server solutions that we provide and select this Operating System on the order page. You'll be able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release, because we give you the option to select the more appropriate one, based on the software that you would like to install on your server once it's up and running. In case you're more tech-savvy, you can get a Debian-powered VPS with no Control Panel, and you'll have full root access and you can control the content and the software through SSH. In case you are less experienced, but you'd like to use an application which requires Debian, you are able to pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page and you'll be able to manage the entire server like a standard shared hosting account. You can also benefit from the optional Managed Services upgrade that we offer, since it includes once a week Operating System updates done by our administrators, among various other useful things.
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 single click for your brand new machine, based on what software environment the applications which you plan to use require for optimal performance. You can also choose if our Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on the server or if it should come without Control Panel at all. The first option is suitable for inexperienced users who need a Debian-powered server, but wish to manage it like a shared hosting account, while the second option is suitable for more advanced users who wish to have more control, due to the fact that ‘no Control Panel' means only Debian and the Apache web server software, and no other software installed on the server at all. We'll also save you time and effort with our Managed Services upgrade, as it comes with regular Operating System updates, so that you'll have a safe and stable Debian installation.
