Debian is a Linux distribution, that is widespread for desktop computers, however it's been gaining popularity as a server Operating System during the last couple of years as well. It is really dependable and protected, since fixes are released in a few days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a huge support community, so if you have any kind of questions or problems with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it comes with, you can contact the developers immediately via e-mail using special mailing lists and receive a reply in just 15-20 minutes. The Debian community supplies the best level of support possible, because your questions will be handled by the very same people that created Debian in the first place, so they have an exhaustive knowledge of how their own system works. As the Operating System is free to use and distribute, no license costs will be included with your website hosting fees and you will be able to change the code files and any other software which you install without any restrictions, to optimize the software environment for your Internet sites. In addition, Debian performs very well on any kind of hardware, because it is light and effective and doesn't need much memory.

Debian in VPS Servers

You are able to select the Debian Operating System with each VPS server package that we supply. 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are among the options that you'll find on the order page, so you can select the one that is more suitable for the software that you would like to install and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be installed either with no Control Panel or with our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you'll have more freedom, as you will have full root access and you're able to make use of the advantages and the full functionality supplied by Debian. In the second case, the root access is restricted, however you are able to control your website content via a web interface, not a console. In case you don't have a lot of time to command your Debian-powered server, or if you do not have much 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

Each and every dedicated server that we supply can be set up with Debian and we'll test the software environment thoroughly before we hand over your machine in order to ensure that it will perform properly. You'll be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release during the sign-up process, so the applications which you install will be able to get the maximum out of your server. We will also maintain your Operating System up-to-date when you add the additional Managed Services package to your plan. In case you obtain your Debian-driven server without a website hosting Control Panel, you can do anything you like with the machine and you will have full root-level access, but you'll need to be more experienced, because all of the tasks will be performed using a Secure Shell console. If you get your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will have a web interface, via which you will be able to manage domains, files, databases, etc, and this might be a better option in case you aren't very experienced, but a particular application which you need to use requires Debian. You can access your Hepsia-equipped server via SSH too, but the things which you are able to do will be limited.
