Debian is a Linux distribution, that is preffered for desktop machines, but it's been gaining in popularity as a server OS during the last couple of years too. It is really dependable and safe, due to the fact that fixes are released in a couple of days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a huge support community, so if you have any questions or issues with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it comes with, you will be able to contact the developers right away through e-mail using special mailing lists and receive a response in just 15-20 minutes. The Debian community supplies the best level of support possible, because all your questions will be handled by the same people that built Debian in the first place, so they have a detailed knowledge of how their system works. Because the Operating System is absolutely free to use and distribute, no license costs will be added to your web hosting fees and you can modify the program code files and any other software that you install without any restrictions, in order to optimize the software environment for your sites. In addition, Debian performs really well on any hardware, as it is light and effective and doesn't require much memory.
Debian in VPS Hosting
There're several Operating Systems that we supply with our VPS hosting services and Debian is among them, so when you'd like to have a server with this OS, you'll be able to get one in less than one hour. We also offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS to make sure that the VPS you will have will fully cover the system requirements of any web or offline app which you intend to install on the server. Managing the content on the server can be performed in two ways, according to the choice you make on the order page. Without a Control Panel, you are able to do everything on your Debian-equipped server using Secure Shell, as you will have root-level access, while through the Hepsia Control Panel, the root access will have some restrictions, but you will be able to do everything from your browser using an intuitive web interface, even if you are not very experienced. When you use the optional Managed Services package which we supply, we'll also maintain your Debian OS updated weekly, saving you time and effort.
Debian in Dedicated Web Hosting
32-bit and 64-bit versions of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you will be able to select all of them with just a mouse click for your brand new server, based on what software environment the apps which you wish to use require for optimal performance. You can also choose whether our Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on the server or if it should come without any Control Panel at all. The first option is made for inexperienced users who need a Debian-powered server, but want to control it like a shared hosting account, whereas the second option is suitable 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 whatsoever. We can also save your time and effort with our Managed Services upgrade, since it features regular Operating System updates, so that you'll have a safe and stable Debian installation.
