Debian is a Linux release, that is widely used for desktop computers, but it's been gaining popularity as a server Operating System over the last couple of years as well. It is really stable and protected, since fixes are released in a couple of days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a large support community, so if you have any kind of questions or troubles with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it includes, you're able to contact the developers immediately through e-mail using special e-mail lists and receive a reply within 15-20 min. The Debian community supplies the best level of support possible, as all of your questions will be handled by the very same people who made Debian in the first place, so they have a detailed knowledge of how their own system works. Because the Operating System is absolutely free to use and distribute, no license costs will be included with your hosting fees and you'll be able to customize the program code files and any other software which you install without restrictions, to optimize the software environment for your Internet sites. Furthermore, Debian performs very well on any kind of hardware, because it is light and effective and does not require a lot of memory.
Debian in VPS Servers
You'll be able to get a Debian-powered VPS server with any of our VPS plans and you will be able to choose if the version which will be installed during the server setup process should be 32-bit or 64-bit. Thus, you will ensure that the software environment will match the requirements of the applications that you wish to run and that the latter will work efficiently. Throughout the order process, you may also choose whether the VPS will come with the Hepsia Control Panel or without Control Panel at all. The first option will provide you with an easy-to-use graphical interface, through which you are able to control everything related to your online presence using only a web browser - files, e-mails, databases, etcetera. With no Control Panel at hand, you'll have to make everything through a console, yet you will have full root access and you'll be able to set up any kind of software that may not be compatible with Hepsia. In addition, you can add our optional Managed Services package, which includes regular Operating System updates.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You'll be able to select the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server with just a mouse click on our order page and depending on your choice, we'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS on the machine, to ensure that the software that you will install later will perform in the optimal way. Choosing a server without any Control Panel, you will receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you can manage everything through a console. A server that is acquired with the Hepsia Control Panel will feature all the software which you may need for your websites. Even though with the latter option the root access will be limited, you will be able to control the server as if it were a shared hosting account, which means that you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you don't have previous experience with this kind of hosting service. When you buy the Managed Services upgrade, we will take care of your server and will update its OS weekly in order to make sure that you have the most recent and most risk-free edition.
