Debian is a Linux release, which is preffered for desktop machines, yet it's been becoming more popular as a server OS during the last few years too. It is very stable and secure, since fixes are released within a couple of days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a vast support community, so if you have any kind of questions or issues with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it features, you can easily contact the developers without delay through electronic mail using special mailing lists and receive a reply in 15-20 min. The Debian community gives you the top level of support possible, as your questions will be handled by exactly the same people that made Debian in the first place, so they have a detailed 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 additional software that you install with no restrictions, so as to optimize the software environment for your web sites. In addition, Debian performs really well on any hardware, as it's light and quick and doesn't need a lot of memory.
Debian in VPS Servers
There are a few Operating Systems that we provide with our VPS servers
and Debian is one of them, which means that when you need a server with this Operating System, you can acquire one in under one hour. In addition, we offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS to ensure that the VPS you'll receive will fully cover the system requirements of any kind of web or offline app which you would like to install on the server. Managing the content on the server can be done in two ways, depending on the choice you make on the order page. Without a Control Panel, you can do everything on your Debian-equipped server using Secure Shell, as you will have root-level access, while using the Hepsia Control Panel, the root access will have some restrictions, but you can do everything through your Internet browser using a handy web interface, even when you are not very experienced. Using the optional Managed Services package which we supply, we can also keep your Debian OS updated every week, saving you effort and time.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
Each dedicated server
that we provide can be installed with Debian and we will test the software environment in depth before we hand over your server so as to ensure that it'll perform perfectly. You're able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version throughout the sign-up process, so the applications which you set up will be able to get the maximum out of your server. We can also keep your OS up-to-date when you add the optional Managed Services package to your plan. In case you obtain your Debian-driven server without a web hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to do anything you like with your machine and you'll have full root-level access, but you'll need to be more skillful, because all of the tasks will be performed through a Secure Shell console. If you get your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll receive a web interface, via which you will be able to manage domains, files, databases, and many others, and this might be a better option if you are not very experienced, but a specific application which you would like to use requires Debian. You can access your Hepsia-equipped server via SSH too, however the things which you'll be able to do are restricted.
