Debian is a Linux distribution, which is widely used for desktop machines, yet it has been gaining popularity as a server OS over the last couple of years too. It's very stable and risk-free, due to the fact that fixes are released within a couple of days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a huge support community, so if you have any questions or problems with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it is equipped with, you can easily contact the developers immediately through e-mail using special e-mail lists and receive a response in 15-20 min. The Debian community provides the top level of support possible, because all of your questions will be handled by the very same people who made Debian in the first place, so they have an exhaustive knowledge of how their system works. Since the Operating System is 100% free to use and distribute, no license costs will be added to your website hosting fees and you'll be able to change the code files and any other software that you install without 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 quick and does not need much memory.
Debian in VPS Hosting
You'll be able to select the Debian Operating System with each virtual private server solution that we supply. 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are among the options that you'll find on the order page, which means that you can select the one that will be more suitable for the software that you'd like to install and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be installed either with no Control Panel or with our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you'll have more freedom, considering that you will have full root access and you will be able to make use of the advantages and the full functionality offered by Debian. In the second case, the root access is limited, but you will be able to manage your web content through a web interface, not a console. If you do not have much time to manage your Debian-powered server, or if you don't have a lot of experience, you're able to add the Managed Services upgrade to your package and our admins will handle the regular OS updates.
Debian in Dedicated Web Hosting
You are able to choose the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server with a mouse click on our registration page and depending on your choice, we'll install the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS on the machine, so that the software that you will install later will work in the best possible way. Selecting a server without any Control Panel, you will receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you are able to control everything using a console. A server which is ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel will come with all of the software which you may need for your Internet sites. Although with the latter option the root access will be restricted, you will be able to control the server as if it were a shared web hosting account, therefore you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you don't have previous expertise in this type of web hosting service. If you buy the Managed Services upgrade, we'll take care of your server and will update its OS every week in order to ensure that you have the most current and most secure edition.
