Debian is a Linux release, which is widespread for desktop computers, but it's been gaining popularity as a server Operating System over the last few years as well. It's very dependable and safe, since fixes are released within a few days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a vast support community, so when you have any questions or problems with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it features, you are able to contact the developers without delay through electronic mail using special e-mail lists and receive a reply in 15-20 minutes. The Debian community gives you the top level of support possible, as all of your questions will be handled by exactly the same people that built Debian in the first place, so they have a detailed knowledge of how their system functions. As the Operating System is absolutely free to use and distribute, no license costs will be included with your website hosting fees and you will be able to modify the code files and any additional software that you install without any restrictions, in order to optimize the software environment for your web sites. What's more, Debian performs very well on any hardware, because it's light and effective and doesn't need a lot of memory.
Debian in VPS Servers
You are able to acquire a Debian-powered VPS server with any of our VPS solutions and you can choose if the version which will be installed during the server setup process should be 32-bit or 64-bit. Thus, you can guarantee that the software environment will match the system requirements of the applications that you want to run and that the latter will run correctly. During the order process, you can also choose if the VPS will come with the Hepsia Control Panel or without any Control Panel at all. The first option will provide you with an easy-to-use graphical interface, via that you'll be able to control everything related to your web presence using only a web browser - files, emails, databases, and so on. Without a Control Panel at hand, you'll have to do everything through a console, however you'll have full root access and you'll be able to install any kind of software that may not be compatible with Hepsia. You can also add the optional Managed Services package, that includes regular Operating System updates.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
32-bit and 64-bit releases of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you can pick any of them with only a click for your new machine, based on what software environment the applications that you wish to use require for the best performance. You may also select if our Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on the server or if it should come without a Control Panel at all. The first option is made for inexperienced users who want a Debian-powered server, yet would like to control it like a shared website hosting account, whereas the second option is good for more advanced users who would like to have more control, due to the fact that ‘no Control Panel' stands for only Debian and the Apache web server software, but no other software set up on the server whatsoever. We will also save you time and effort with our Managed Services upgrade, because it features routine Operating System updates, so that you will have a secure and stable Debian installation.
