Debian is a Linux release, which is widespread for desktop machines, but it has been gaining popularity as a server Operating System over the last couple of years as well. It is very stable and secure, because 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 problems with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it is equipped with, you are able to contact the developers right away via electronic mail using special e-mail lists and receive a reply in 15-20 minutes. The Debian community gives you the top level of support possible, as all your questions will be handled by exactly the same people who created Debian in the first place, so they have a detailed knowledge of how their system operates. Since the Operating System is 100% free to use and distribute, no license costs will be added to your web hosting fees and you'll be able to modify the program code files and any other software that you install without restrictions, in order to optimize the software environment for your Internet sites. Furthermore, Debian performs really well on any kind of hardware, because it's light and quick and doesn't require a lot of memory.
Debian in VPS Servers
You can pick the Debian Operating System with each VPS server plan that we provide. 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options that you will find on the order page, which means that you can pick the one that will be more suitable for the software that you'd like to install and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be set up either devoid of Control Panel or with our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you will have more freedom, since you will have full root access and you can take advantage of the advantages and the full functionality provided by Debian. In the second case, the root access is limited, but you're able to manage your online content through a web interface, not a console. In case you do not have a lot of time to control your Debian-powered server, or if you don't have much experience, you could add the Managed Services upgrade to your plan and our admins will handle the regular OS updates.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
32-bit and 64-bit releases of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you'll be able to choose any of them with just a mouse click for your brand new server, based on what software environment the apps that you want to use require for top notch performance. You can also select if our Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on the server or if it should come with no Control Panel at all. The first option is suitable for less experienced users who need a Debian-powered server, but want to control it like a shared website hosting account, whereas the second option is good for more advanced users who would like to have more control, since ‘no Control Panel' means only Debian and the Apache web server software, and no other software installed on the server whatsoever. We can also save your time and effort with the Managed Services upgrade, since it comes with routine Operating System updates, to ensure that you'll have a secure and stable Debian installation.
