Debian is a Linux release, that's widespread for desktop computers, but it has been becoming more popular as a server OS over the last couple of years as well. It's really dependable and secure, since fixes are released within a couple of days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a huge support community, so if you have any kind of questions or problems with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it features, you can contact the developers directly through email using special mailing lists and receive a response in just 15-20 minutes. The Debian community provides the best level of support possible, because your questions will be handled by exactly the same people who built Debian in the first place, so they have an exhaustive knowledge of how their system functions. As the Operating System is 100% free to use and distribute, no license costs will be included with your hosting fees and you will be able to customize the program code files and any other software that you install without any restrictions, in order to optimize the software environment for your web sites. What's more, Debian performs really well on any hardware, as it's light and effective and does not need much memory.
Debian in VPS Web Hosting
You're able to pick the Debian Operating System with each and every virtual private server solution that we offer. 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are among the options that you'll find on the order page, which means that you can select the one that is more suitable for the software that you would like to set up and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be set up either without Control Panel or with our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you'll have more freedom, since you will have full root access and you're able to make use of the advantages and the full functionality offered by Debian. In the second case, the root access will be limited, but you can manage your online content via a web interface, not a console. If you do not have a lot of time to maintain your Debian-powered server, or in case you don't have a lot of experience, you're able to add the Managed Services upgrade to your package and our admins will handle the regular OS updates.
Debian in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You'll be able to select the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with only a mouse click on our order page and depending on your choice, we will set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS on your machine, so that the software that you'll install later will perform in the optimal way. Choosing a server with no Control Panel, you'll receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you can control everything through a console. A server that's obtained with our Hepsia Control Panel will feature all of the software that you will need for your Internet sites. Even though with the latter option the root access will be limited, you are able to manage the server as if it were a shared website hosting account, so you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you do not have previous expertise in this type of web hosting service. If you order our Managed Services upgrade, we'll maintain your server and will update its OS on a weekly basis in order to ensure that you have the latest and most safe version.
