Debian is a Linux release, that's widely used for desktop machines, yet it has been becoming more popular as a server OS over the last couple of years as well. It's very stable and secure, since fixes are released within a couple of 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 any of the 30,000+ packages it includes, you're able to contact the developers straight away via e-mail using special mailing lists and receive a reply within 15-20 minutes. The Debian community provides the best 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 an in-depth knowledge of how their own system operates. As the Operating System is free to use and distribute, no license costs will be included with your hosting fees and you can customize the code files and any other software which you install without restrictions, in order to optimize the software environment for your websites. Furthermore, Debian performs really well on any kind of hardware, because it's light and efficient and doesn't need a lot of memory.
Debian in VPS
You can select the Debian Operating System with each virtual private server solution that we offer. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of the options that you can find on the order page, so you can select the one that will be more suitable for the software that you would like to install and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be set up either without any Control Panel or with our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you will have more freedom, due to the fact that 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, yet you are able to control your online content through 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 administrators will take care of the regular OS updates.
Debian in Dedicated Hosting
You're able to choose the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server with a click on our registration page and based on your choice, we will set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS on the machine, so that the software that you will install later will work in the right way. Using a server devoid of Control Panel, you will get Debian and the Apache web server software and you will be able to manage everything using a console. A server that is ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel will feature all of the software which you may need for your sites. Though with the latter option the root access will be restricted, you can control the server as if it were a shared website hosting account, thus 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 the Managed Services upgrade, we'll maintain your server and will update its OS every week so as to make sure that you have the most current and most safe edition.
