Debian is a Linux distribution, that's preffered for desktop machines, however it has been gaining popularity as a server Operating System over the last few years too. It's very dependable and secure, as fixes are released in just a couple of days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a huge support community, so when you have any kind of questions or problems with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it features, you are able to contact the developers right away via electronic mail using special mailing lists and receive a response in just 15-20 min. The Debian community offers the best level of support possible, because 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 works. Since the Operating System is free to use and distribute, no license costs will be included with your web hosting fees and you can modify the code files and any additional software which you install without any restrictions, so as to optimize the software environment for your web sites. What's more, Debian performs very well on any kind of hardware, as it's light and effective and doesn't need a lot of memory.
Debian in VPS Servers
When you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the VPS server plans that we offer and choose this Operating System on the order page. You can pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version, because we give you the option to choose the more appropriate one, based on the software which you would like to install on your server once it is up and running. When you're more tech-savvy, you may get a Debian-powered VPS with no Control Panel, so that you'll have full root access and you're able to manage the content and the software through SSH. In case you are less experienced, yet you'd like to use an app that requires Debian, you're able to pick the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel on the order page and you will be able to manage the whole server like a standard shared hosting account. You can also benefit from the optional Managed Services upgrade that we supply, because it comes with once a week Operating System updates performed by our admins, among various other useful things.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
32-bit and 64-bit versions of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you're able to choose any of them with only a mouse click for your new machine, based on what software environment the applications which you plan to use require for top notch performance. You may also choose if our Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on the server or whether it should come without Control Panel at all. The first option is suitable for less experienced users who want a Debian-powered server, but would like to manage it like a shared website hosting account, while the second option is good for more experienced users who need to have more control, as ‘no Control Panel' means only Debian and the Apache web server software, but no other software installed on the server whatsoever. We will 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.
