Debian is a Linux release, that's widespread for desktop machines, however it's been gaining in popularity as a server OS during the last couple of years as well. It is very stable and risk-free, due to the fact that fixes are released within a couple of days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a huge support community, so when you have any kind of questions or problems with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it includes, you are able to contact the developers directly through e-mail using special mailing lists and receive a reply within 15-20 min. The Debian community gives you the best level of support possible, because all your questions will be handled by the very same people that made Debian in the first place, so they have a thorough knowledge of how their system functions. Since the Operating System is 100% free to use and distribute, no license charges will be included with your website hosting fees and you will be able to customize the program code files and any additional software which you install without restrictions, in order to optimize the software environment for your web sites. In addition, Debian performs really well on any hardware, because it's light and fast and does not require much memory.

Debian in VPS

You are able to select the Debian Operating System with each virtual private server solution that we supply. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are among the options that you will find on the order page, which means that you can select the one that is more suitable for the software that you would like to set up and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be installed either with no Control Panel or with our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you will have more freedom, considering that you will have full root access and you are able to make use of the advantages and the full functionality offered by Debian. In the second case, the root access is restricted, but you will be able to control your online content through a web interface, not a console. In case you do not have much time to command your Debian-powered server, or in case you don't have substantial experience, you could add the Managed Services upgrade to your plan and our administrators will take care of the weekly OS updates.

Debian in Dedicated Hosting

Each dedicated server that we provide can be set up with Debian and we'll test the software environment in detail before we hand over the machine to ensure that it'll perform flawlessly. You'll be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release throughout the signup process, so the apps which you install can get the maximum out of your server. We will also keep your OS up-to-date when you add the additional Managed Services package to your plan. If you obtain your Debian-driven server without a hosting Control Panel, you can do anything you like with your machine and you'll have full root-level access, yet you'll need to be more experienced, as all the tasks will be performed through a Secure Shell console. When you get your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you'll have a web interface, through which you can control domains, files, databases, etc, and this might be the best option if you are not very experienced, but a certain application that you'd like to use requires Debian. You have access to your Hepsia-equipped server via SSH too, however the things that you are able to do will be restricted.
