Debian is a Linux distribution, which is preffered for desktop machines, yet it has been gaining in popularity as a server OS during the last few years as well. It is really dependable and risk-free, as fixes are released in a few days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a large support community, so when you have any kind of questions or issues with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it is equipped with, you can easily contact the developers without delay through e-mail using special mailing lists and receive a reply within 15-20 minutes. The Debian community offers the top level of support possible, as all of your questions will be handled by the same people who created Debian in the first place, so they have a thorough knowledge of how their system works. Since the Operating System is 100% free to use and distribute, no license costs 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 with no restrictions, to optimize the software environment for your web sites. Furthermore, Debian performs really well on any hardware, because it's light and quick and does not require a lot of memory.
Debian in VPS Servers
You can get a Debian-powered VPS server with all of our VPS solutions and you will be able to choose if the version which will be installed during the server setup process will be 32-bit or 64-bit. This way, you will guarantee that the software environment will meet the system requirements of the applications that you want to run and that the latter will work properly. During the order process, you may also decide if the VPS will come with our Hepsia Control Panel or without Control Panel at all. The first option gives you an easy to navigate graphical interface, via which you'll be able to control everything related to your world wide web presence using only a web browser - files, emails, databases, etcetera. Without Control Panel at hand, you will need to do everything through a console, however you will have full root access and you can set up any kind of software that may not be supported by Hepsia. In addition, you can add the optional Managed Services package, that includes weekly Operating System updates.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
32-bit and 64-bit versions of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you'll be able to select all of them with just a mouse click for your brand new server, depending on what software environment the applications that you plan to use require for top notch performance. You may also choose whether our Hepsia Control Panel should be installed 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 web hosting account, while the second option is good for more advanced users who need to have more control, because ‘no Control Panel' stands for only Debian and the Apache web server software, and no other software installed on the server at all. We will also save you time and effort with the Managed Services upgrade, as it features regular Operating System updates, to ensure that you will have a secure and stable Debian installation.
