Debian is a Linux distribution, which is preffered for desktop machines, yet it's been gaining popularity as a server OS over the last few years too. It is very stable and protected, as fixes are released within a few days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a huge support community, so if you have any questions or issues with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it comes with, you will be able to contact the developers right away through email using special mailing lists and receive a response in 15-20 minutes. The Debian community supplies the top level of support possible, because your questions will be handled by the same people who made Debian in the first place, so they have a detailed knowledge of how their own system functions. Because the Operating System is 100% free to use and distribute, no license charges will be included with your hosting fees and you'll be able to modify the program code files and any additional software that you install with no restrictions, in order to optimize the software environment for your sites. Furthermore, Debian performs very well on any kind of hardware, as it's light and efficient and doesn't need much memory.
Debian in VPS
You'll be able to acquire 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 throughout the server setup process should be 32-bit or 64-bit. This way, you'll make sure that the software environment will meet the system requirements of the applications which you want to run and that the latter will function correctly. Throughout the order process, you may also decide whether the VPS will come with our Hepsia Control Panel or without any Control Panel at all. The first option gives you a user-friendly graphical interface, through which you are able to manage everything related to your web presence using only a web browser - files, emails, databases, and so on. Without a Control Panel at hand, you will need to do everything through a console, but you'll have full root access and you'll be able to set up any kind of software that may not be compatible with Hepsia. In addition, you can add our optional Managed Services package, which includes regular Operating System updates.
Debian in Dedicated Hosting
With each of our Linux dedicated hosting, you can get a web hosting powerhouse running Debian right away. This Operating System is among the choices that you'll get during the registration process and you will be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit release, depending on what software environment your apps need. If you want to have full root access, you'll be able to order a server without a Control Panel, so you'll have more freedom in terms of what you can do with your machine using SSH. If you have less experience, but you need Debian for a certain computer program, you can order the server with our Hepsia Control Panel. Even though the root access will be more limited, you can do anything related to your online content without difficulty using an intuitive graphical interface. When you add the optional Managed Services bundle to your dedicated server plan, our system administrators will take care of the weekly OS updates. They will perform other useful tasks on your behalf as well.
