Debian is a Linux distribution, which is widely used for desktop machines, however it has been gaining in popularity as a server Operating System during the last couple of years as well. It is very stable and risk-free, since fixes are released in just a few days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a huge support community, so if you have any questions or problems with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it is equipped with, you can easily contact the developers without delay via electronic mail using special mailing lists and receive a response in just 15-20 minutes. The Debian community supplies the top level of support possible, since all of your questions will be handled by exactly the same people who created Debian in the first place, so they have a thorough knowledge of how their system functions. Because the Operating System is absolutely free to use and distribute, no license costs will be included with your hosting fees and you'll be able to modify the program code files and any other software that you install with no restrictions, to optimize the software environment for your Internet sites. What's more, Debian performs very well on any hardware, as it is light and efficient and does not need much memory.
Debian in VPS Hosting
You can obtain a Debian-powered virtual private server with all of our VPS plans 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'll guarantee that the software environment will match the system requirements of the apps that you wish to run and that the latter will function efficiently. During the order process, you may also select if the VPS will come with our Hepsia Control Panel or without any Control Panel at all. The first option will give you a handy graphical interface, through which you will be able to control everything related to your web presence using only an Internet browser - files, email accounts, databases, and the like. Without a Control Panel at hand, you'll need to do everything through a console, yet you'll have full root access and you'll be able to install any software that may not be compatible with Hepsia. In addition, you can add our optional Managed Services package, which includes weekly Operating System updates.
Debian in Dedicated Web Hosting
You will be able to select the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with only a click on our order page and based on your choice, we will install the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS on the machine, so that the software that you'll install later will perform in the best way. Using a server with no Control Panel, you'll get Debian and the Apache web server software and you're able to manage everything through a console. A server that is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel will come with all of the software which you may need for your web sites. Though with the latter option the root access is restricted, you'll be able to manage the server as if it were a shared web hosting account, so you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you don't have previous expertise in this type of web hosting service. When you get our Managed Services upgrade, we'll maintain your server and will update its OS every week to make sure that you have the most recent and most risk-free release.
