Debian is a Linux distribution, which is widely used for desktop machines, but it has been becoming more popular as a server Operating System during the last few years as well. It is very stable and safe, as fixes are released within a few days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a huge support community, so when you have any questions or issues with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it comes with, you're able to contact the developers straight away through e-mail using special e-mail lists and receive a reply in just 15-20 min. The Debian community offers the best level of support possible, because all your questions will be handled by the same people that built Debian in the first place, so they have an exhaustive knowledge of how their system works. As the Operating System is free to use and distribute, no license charges will be added to your hosting fees and you will be able to change the program code files and any other software which you install without any restrictions, in order to optimize the software environment for your Internet sites. In addition, Debian performs very well on any hardware, as it is light and effective and does not require much memory.
Debian in VPS Servers
If you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the VPS server packages that we supply and pick this Operating System on the registration page. You can choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version, because we give you the option to pick the right one, according to the software that you would like to install on your server once it's up and running. If you are more tech-savvy, you can get a Debian-powered VPS with no Control Panel, so that you will have full root access and you will be able to manage the content and the software using SSH. In case you are less experienced, but you'd like to use an app that requires Debian, you'll be able to select our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel on the order page and you will be able to manage the whole server like a standard shared hosting account. In addition, you can benefit from the optional Managed Services upgrade that we supply, because it comes with regular Operating System updates performed by our admins, among many other useful things.
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 pick any of them with just a click for your new machine, depending on what software environment the applications that you plan to use require for optimal performance. You may also select if our Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on the server or whether it should come with no 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 good for more advanced users who want to have more control, because ‘no Control Panel' means only Debian and the Apache web server software, and no other software set up on the server whatsoever. We can also save you time and effort with the Managed Services upgrade, as it comes with routine Operating System updates, to ensure that you will have a safe and stable Debian installation.
