Debian is a Linux distribution, that is widespread for desktop machines, yet it's been becoming more popular as a server Operating System during the last couple of years too. It's really stable and risk-free, as fixes are released in a couple of days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a huge support community, so when you have any kind of questions or troubles with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it includes, you are able to contact the developers immediately via email using special e-mail lists and receive a response in just 15-20 min. The Debian community provides the top level of support possible, as all of your questions will be handled by the very same people who created Debian in the first place, so they have a thorough knowledge of how their system functions. Since the Operating System is 100% free to use and distribute, no license charges will be added to your web hosting fees and you can modify the program code files and any other software which you install without any restrictions, to optimize the software environment for your websites. Furthermore, Debian performs really well on any kind of hardware, because it's light and fast and does not require much memory.
Debian in VPS Hosting
You're able to select the Debian Operating System with each virtual private server
solution that we provide. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of the options that you will find on the order page, which means that you can select the one that will be more suitable for the software that you would like to install and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be set up either with no Control Panel or with our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you have more freedom, due to the fact that you will have full root access and you'll be able to make use of the advantages and the full functionality provided by Debian. In the second case, the root access is restricted, yet you will be able to control your website content through a web interface, not a console. If you do not have much time to command your Debian-powered server, or if you don't have a lot of experience, you could add the Managed Services upgrade to your plan and our admins will handle the weekly OS updates.
Debian in Dedicated Web Hosting
32-bit and 64-bit editions of Debian are available on our dedicated server
order page and you're able to pick any of them with just a single click for your new server, depending on what software environment the apps that you would like to use require for optimal performance. You can also select if our Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on the server or whether it should come without a Control Panel at all. The first option is made for less experienced users who want a Debian-powered server, but would like to manage it like a shared hosting account, whereas the second option is suitable for more experienced users who want to have more control, as ‘no Control Panel' stands for only Debian and the Apache web server software, but no other software set up on the server whatsoever. We will also save your time and effort with the Managed Services upgrade, as it comes with regular Operating System updates, to ensure that you'll have a safe and stable Debian installation.
