Debian is a Linux distribution, which is preffered for desktop machines, yet it has been gaining popularity as a server OS during the last couple of years too. It is really stable and protected, as fixes are released in a few days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a vast support community, so when you have any kind of questions or issues with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it includes, you can contact the developers straight away through email using special e-mail lists and receive a reply in 15-20 min. The Debian community provides the best level of support possible, since all of your questions will be handled by exactly the same people who built Debian in the first place, so they have a detailed knowledge of how their system functions. Since the Operating System is absolutely free to use and distribute, no license charges will be included with your web hosting fees and you'll be able to customize the program code files and any additional software that you install without any restrictions, to optimize the software environment for your websites. In addition, Debian performs very well on any kind of hardware, because it's light and quick and does not need much memory.
Debian in VPS Servers
You'll be able to get a Debian-powered VPS server with any of our VPS plans and you'll be able to choose if the version which will be installed throughout the server setup process will be 32-bit or 64-bit. Thus, you can ensure that the software environment will match the system requirements of the applications that you need to run and that the latter will run efficiently. During the order process, you can also decide if the VPS will come with the Hepsia Control Panel or without any Control Panel at all. The first option provides you with an easy to navigate graphical interface, via which you will be able to control everything related to your online presence using only an Internet browser - files, e-mail accounts, databases, etcetera. With no Control Panel at hand, you'll have to do everything via a console, yet you will have full root access and you will 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 weekly Operating System updates.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You are able to pick the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with just a single click on our registration page and according to your choice, we'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS on the machine, so that the software that you will install later will perform in the best way. With a server without any Control Panel, you will get Debian and the Apache web server software and you are able to manage everything through a console. A server that is obtained with the Hepsia Control Panel will include all the software which you'll need for your websites. Even though with the latter option the root access is restricted, you're able to manage the server as if it were a shared website hosting account, therefore you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you don't have previous expertise in this type of hosting service. When you order the Managed Services upgrade, we'll take care of your server and will update its OS on a weekly basis to make sure that you have the most current and most risk-free edition.
