Debian is a Linux distribution, that is widely used for desktop computers, yet it has been becoming more popular as a server OS during the last few years too. It's really stable and protected, since fixes are released in just a few days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a large 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 through electronic mail using special e-mail lists and receive a response within 15-20 minutes. The Debian community provides the top level of support possible, since your questions will be handled by the very same people who created Debian in the first place, so they have an in-depth knowledge of how their own system works. As the Operating System is 100% free to use and distribute, no license charges will be included with your hosting fees and you will be able to customize the code files and any additional software that you install without restrictions, in order to optimize the software environment for your web sites. What's more, Debian performs really well on any kind of hardware, as it is light and effective and does not require much memory.
Debian in VPS
There're a few Operating Systems that we offer with our Linux VPS
and Debian is among them, which means that if you need a server with this OS, you can acquire one in less than one hour. In addition, we offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS to make sure that the VPS you'll get will completely cover the system requirements of any kind of web or offline app that you want to install on the server. Managing the content on the server can be done in two ways, based on the choice you make on the order page. With no Control Panel, you're able to do everything on your Debian-equipped server through Secure Shell, as you will have root-level access, while using the Hepsia Control Panel, the root access will have certain restrictions, but you can do everything from your web browser using an intuitive web interface, even when you aren't very experienced. When you use the optional Managed Services package which we offer, we can also maintain your Debian OS updated on a weekly basis, saving you time and effort.
Debian in Dedicated Hosting
You are able to pick the Debian OS for your new dedicated server
with just a single click on our order page and according to your choice, we will set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS on the machine, to ensure that the software that you will install later will perform in the best possible way. Choosing a server without any Control Panel, you will get Debian and the Apache web server software and you can control everything using a console. A server which is obtained with the Hepsia Control Panel will come with all the software which you will need for your web sites. Though with the latter option the root access will be limited, you can manage the server as if it were a shared website hosting account, which means that you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you don't have previous experience with this type of web hosting service. If you order our Managed Services upgrade, we'll maintain your server and will update its OS weekly so as to ensure that you have the most current and most secure version.
