Debian is a Linux distribution, that is widely used for desktop computers, but it's been becoming more popular as a server Operating System over the last couple of years too. It's really stable and safe, because fixes are released within a couple of days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a vast support community, so if you have any questions or troubles with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it includes, you can easily contact the developers right away via electronic mail using special e-mail lists and receive a response in 15-20 minutes. The Debian community provides the best level of support possible, as all your questions will be handled by the same people who made Debian in the first place, so they have a detailed knowledge of how their system operates. Because the Operating System is free to use and distribute, no license costs will be added to your website hosting fees and you can modify the program code files and any additional software which you install with no restrictions, to optimize the software environment for your websites. In addition, Debian performs very well on any kind of hardware, as it is light and efficient and doesn't require much memory.
Debian in VPS Servers
There are a few Operating Systems that we offer with our VPS hosting service and Debian is one of them, so if you need a server with this OS, you can acquire one in under one hour. In addition, we offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS to make sure that the VPS you'll have will fully cover the system requirements of any web or offline app that you wish to install on the server. Managing the content on the server can be done in two ways, according to the choice you make on the order page. Without a Control Panel, you can do everything on your Debian-equipped server using Secure Shell, as you'll have root-level access, whereas using the Hepsia Control Panel, the root access will have some limitations, but you will be able to do everything through your Internet browser using a handy web interface, even if you aren't very experienced. Using the optional Managed Services package that we offer, we can also maintain your Debian OS up to date on a weekly basis, saving you effort and time.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
32-bit and 64-bit editions of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you are able to choose any of them with only a single click for your new machine, depending on what software environment the apps that you plan to use require for optimal performance. You may also choose if our Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on the server or if it should come without a Control Panel at all. The first option is suitable for less experienced users who need a Debian-powered server, but wish to manage it like a shared hosting account, whereas the second option is suitable for more experienced users who want to have more control, since ‘no Control Panel' means only Debian and the Apache web server software, and no other software set up on the server at all. We'll also save you time and effort with our Managed Services upgrade, since it includes routine Operating System updates, so that you'll have a safe and stable Debian installation.
