Debian is a Linux release, which is preffered for desktop machines, however it has been gaining popularity as a server OS during the last few years as well. It's very dependable and secure, as fixes are released in just a couple of days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a large support community, so if you have any kind of questions or troubles 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 electronic mail using special e-mail lists and receive a response in 15-20 min. The Debian community offers the top level of support possible, as all of your questions will be handled by exactly the same people that made Debian in the first place, so they have a thorough knowledge of how their system functions. As the Operating System is absolutely free to use and distribute, no license charges will be included with your website hosting fees and you can modify the program code files and any additional software that you install without restrictions, so as to optimize the software environment for your websites. Furthermore, Debian performs very well on any hardware, as it's light and effective and does not need a lot of memory.

Debian in VPS

You're able to pick the Debian Operating System with each virtual private server package that we offer. 32-bit and 64-bit releases 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 set up and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be installed either devoid of Control Panel or with our tailor-made Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you have more freedom, as 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 will be restricted, yet you will be able to control your website content via a web interface, not a console. If you do not have much time to maintain your Debian-powered server, or in case you do not have substantial experience, you are able to add the Managed Services upgrade to your plan and our administrators will handle the weekly OS updates.

Debian in Dedicated Hosting

32-bit and 64-bit versions of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you can pick all of them with just a mouse click for your brand new machine, depending on what software environment the apps that you plan to use require for the best performance. You can also select if our Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on the server or whether it should come without a 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 web 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, and no other software installed on the server whatsoever. We'll also save you time and effort with the Managed Services upgrade, since it includes regular Operating System updates, to ensure that you will have a secure and stable Debian installation.
