Debian is a Linux distribution, that is preffered for desktop computers, yet it has been gaining in popularity as a server OS during the last few years too. It's really stable and risk-free, since fixes are released in a couple of days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a vast support community, so if you have any kind of questions or problems with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it includes, you'll be able to contact the developers directly through email using special mailing lists and receive a reply in just 15-20 min. The Debian community provides the best level of support possible, since all your questions will be handled by exactly the same people who made Debian in the first place, so they have a detailed knowledge of how their own system works. Since the Operating System is absolutely free to use and distribute, no license charges will be added to your hosting fees and you will be able to change the program code files and any other software which you install without restrictions, so as to optimize the software environment for your websites. Furthermore, Debian performs very well on any hardware, because it's light and effective and does not need a lot of memory.
Debian in VPS
When you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the virtual private server packages that we provide and pick this Operating System on the order page. You can pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release, as we give you the option to select the more appropriate one, based on the software which you wish to install on your server once it is set up. When you are more tech-savvy, you may get a Debian-powered VPS without a Control Panel, so you'll have full root access and you will be able to manage the content and the software via SSH. If you are less experienced, yet you would like to use an application that requires Debian, you can choose the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel on the order page and you'll be able to manage the entire server like a standard shared hosting account. You may also reap the benefits of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we provide, since it includes weekly Operating System updates done by our admins, among many other useful things.
Debian in Dedicated Hosting
32-bit and 64-bit releases of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you're able to select any of them with just a click for your new machine, depending on what software environment the applications that you want to use require for optimal performance. You can also select whether our Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on the server or whether it should come without any Control Panel at all. The first option is suitable for less experienced users who need a Debian-powered server, but wish to manage it like a shared website hosting account, while the second option is good for more experienced users who need to have more control, because ‘no Control Panel' stands for only Debian and the Apache web server software, but no other software set up on the server at all. We will also save you time and effort with the Managed Services upgrade, as it includes routine Operating System updates, to ensure that you will have a safe and stable Debian installation.
