Debian is a Linux release, which is widely used for desktop machines, but it has been gaining popularity as a server OS during the last couple of years too. It's really stable and secure, due to the fact that fixes are released in just a couple of days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a vast support community, so if you have any kind of questions or issues with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it features, you're able to contact the developers immediately through email using special e-mail lists and receive a response 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 created Debian in the first place, so they have an exhaustive knowledge of how their system operates. As the Operating System is absolutely free to use and distribute, no license charges will be added to your website hosting fees and you'll be able to change the code files and any additional software that you install with no restrictions, in order to optimize the software environment for your web sites. Furthermore, Debian performs really well on any hardware, because it's light and fast and does not need much 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 should be 32-bit or 64-bit. Thus, you will ensure that the software environment will match the system requirements of the apps that you want to run and that the latter will work effectively. During the order process, you can also decide whether the VPS will come with our Hepsia Control Panel or without a Control Panel at all. The first option provides you with a user-friendly graphical interface, via that you are able to manage everything related to your world wide web presence using only a web browser - files, e-mail addresses, databases, etcetera. With no Control Panel at hand, you'll have to do everything through a console, however you will have full root access and you'll be able to set up any software that may not be compatible with Hepsia. You may also add our optional Managed Services package, that includes regular Operating System updates.

Debian in Dedicated Servers

You'll be able to choose the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server with a mouse click on our order page and based on your choice, we will set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS on the machine, so that the software that you'll install later will perform in the right way. Choosing a server without Control Panel, you'll get Debian and the Apache web server software and you will be able to manage everything through a console. A server which is acquired with our Hepsia Control Panel will include all of the software that you may need for your web sites. Even though with the latter option the root access is restricted, you'll be able to control the server as if it were a shared website hosting account, which means that you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you have no previous expertise in this kind of hosting service. If you purchase our Managed Services upgrade, we will take care of your server and will update its OS every week so as to make sure that you have the most recent and most secure edition.
