Debian is a Linux distribution, that is widely used for desktop computers, but it has been becoming more popular as a server OS over the last couple of years as well. It's really dependable and risk-free, as fixes are released in a couple of days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a large support community, so if you have any questions or problems with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it includes, you are able to contact the developers directly via email using special e-mail lists and receive a reply in just 15-20 min. The Debian community gives you the top level of support possible, since all your questions will be handled by the same people who made Debian in the first place, so they have an in-depth knowledge of how their own system functions. As the Operating System is free to use and distribute, no license charges will be included with your web hosting fees and you will be able to modify the code files and any additional software that you install with no restrictions, so as to optimize the software environment for your web sites. Furthermore, Debian performs very well on any kind of hardware, because it is light and fast and doesn't need much memory.
Debian in VPS Servers
You will be able to pick the Debian Operating System with each and every VPS server
solution that we provide. 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options that you can find on the order page, which means that you can select the one that is more suitable for the software that you need to set up and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be installed either with no Control Panel or with our custom Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you have more freedom, as you will have full root access and you'll be able to take advantage of the advantages and the full functionality provided by Debian. In the second case, the root access will be limited, yet you will be able to control your web content through a web interface, not a console. If you don't have a lot of time to control your Debian-powered server, or in case you do not have much experience, you could add the Managed Services upgrade to your plan and our administrators will take care of the weekly OS updates.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
Each and every dedicated server
that we provide can be installed with Debian and we will test the software environment completely before we hand over your machine in order to make sure that it will perform appropriately. You can select the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release during the sign-up process, so that the apps which you install will be able to get the maximum out of your server. We can also maintain your OS up-to-date when you add the additional Managed Services package to your plan. In case you obtain your Debian-driven server without a hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to do anything you want with your machine and you will have full root-level access, yet you will need to be more skillful, because all the tasks will be performed through a Secure Shell console. When you obtain your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll have a web interface, via which you'll be able to control domains, files, databases, etcetera, and this might be the best option when you aren't very experienced, but a specific app that you want to use requires Debian. You'll have access to your Hepsia-equipped server via SSH as well, yet the things that you are able to do will be restricted.
