Debian is a Linux release, which is preffered for desktop computers, but it's been gaining in popularity as a server OS during the last few years as well. It's really stable and risk-free, because fixes are released within 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 any of the 30,000+ packages it is equipped with, you will be able to contact the developers without delay through electronic mail using special e-mail lists and receive a response in 15-20 min. The Debian community offers the best level of support possible, because all of your questions will be handled by the same people that built Debian in the first place, so they have a thorough knowledge of how their system functions. Since the Operating System is free to use and distribute, no license costs will be included with your website hosting fees and you can modify the program code files and any other software which you install without any restrictions, so as to optimize the software environment for your websites. Furthermore, Debian performs really well on any hardware, as it's light and fast and doesn't require a lot of memory.
Debian in VPS Hosting
If you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the virtual private server packages that we supply and choose this Operating System on the order page. You'll be able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release, since we give you the option to select the right one, according to the software which you would like to install on your server once it's up and running. When you're more tech-savvy, you may get a Debian-powered VPS without a Control Panel, so that you'll have full root access and you can control the content and the software through SSH. In case you are less experienced, but you would like to use an application that requires Debian, you are able to choose the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel on the order page and you'll be able to manage the entire server like a standard shared hosting account. You can also take advantage of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we provide, because it features regular Operating System updates done by our administrators, among other useful things.
Debian in Dedicated Web Hosting
Each dedicated server that we supply can be set up with Debian and we'll test the software environment in detail before we hand over your server to ensure that it will perform flawlessly. You will be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release during the signup process, so the apps that you install will be able to get the maximum out of your server. We can also maintain your Operating System up-to-date if you add the optional Managed Services package to your plan. In case you order your Debian-driven server without a website hosting Control Panel, you can do anything you want with the machine and you will have full root-level access, yet you'll have to be more experienced, since all of the tasks will be performed through a Secure Shell console. When you acquire your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will receive a web interface, via which you'll be able to control domains, files, databases, and many others, and this might be a better option if you aren't very experienced, but a certain application which you want to use requires Debian. You can access your Hepsia-equipped server via SSH too, but the things which you will be able to do are restricted.
