Debian is a Linux release, that's preffered for desktop machines, but it's been gaining popularity as a server OS over the last few years as well. It is very dependable and protected, since fixes are released in just a few days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a huge support community, so when you have any questions or troubles with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it is equipped with, you'll be able to contact the developers directly through e-mail using special e-mail lists and receive a reply within 15-20 minutes. The Debian community provides the top level of support possible, because all your questions will be handled by exactly the same people who made Debian in the first place, so they have a detailed knowledge of how their own system works. As the Operating System is 100% free to use and distribute, no license charges will be added to your website hosting fees and you can change the program code files and any other software which you install with no restrictions, in order to optimize the software environment for your websites. In addition, Debian performs really well on any kind of hardware, as it is light and fast and doesn't require much memory.
Debian in VPS Servers
You can acquire a Debian-powered VPS server with any of our VPS packages and you will be able to choose if the version that will be installed during 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 applications which you wish to run and that the latter will run appropriately. During the order process, you can also select 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 easy-to-use graphical interface, via which you will be able to control everything related to your web presence using only an Internet browser - files, e-mail addresses, databases, and many more. With no Control Panel at hand, you will have to do everything through a console, but you will have full root access and you can install any kind of software that may not be supported by Hepsia. You may also add our optional Managed Services package, that includes weekly Operating System updates.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You'll be able to select the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with a mouse click on our order page and according to your choice, we will install the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS on your machine, so that the software that you'll install later will work in the right way. Selecting a server devoid of Control Panel, you will get Debian and the Apache web server software and you'll be able to manage everything through a console. A server that is obtained with the Hepsia Control Panel will come with all of the software that you'll need for your web sites. Although with the latter option the root access will be limited, you're able to control the server as if it were a shared website hosting account, so you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you have no previous experience with this kind of website hosting service. When you get our Managed Services upgrade, we'll maintain your server and will update its OS weekly so as to ensure that you have the most recent and most secure version.
