Debian is a Linux distribution, which is preffered for desktop computers, however it's been becoming more popular as a server Operating System over the last couple of years too. It is very stable and safe, because fixes are released in just a couple of days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a huge 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 are able to contact the developers straight away through electronic mail using special e-mail lists and receive a response within 15-20 min. The Debian community provides the top level of support possible, because all of your questions will be handled by the very same people who built Debian in the first place, so they have a thorough knowledge of how their system operates. Since the Operating System is 100% free to use and distribute, no license costs will be included with your web hosting fees and you can modify the program code files and any other software which you install with no restrictions, to optimize the software environment for your sites. In addition, Debian performs very well on any kind of hardware, as it's light and quick and does not need much memory.
Debian in VPS
You are able to obtain a Debian-powered virtual private server
with any of our VPS solutions and you'll be able to choose if the version which will be installed during the server setup process should be 32-bit or 64-bit. In this way, you'll ensure that the software environment will meet the system requirements of the applications that you want to run and that the latter will function correctly. During the order process, you may also decide whether the VPS will come with the Hepsia Control Panel or without any Control Panel at all. The first option gives you an easy-to-work-with graphical interface, through which you are able to manage everything related to your online presence using only a web browser - files, emails, databases, and the like. Without a Control Panel at hand, you will have to do everything via a console, however you will have full root access and you will be able to install any kind of software that may not be compatible with Hepsia. In addition, you can add our optional Managed Services package, which includes weekly Operating System updates.
Debian in Dedicated Hosting
Each dedicated server
that we offer can be set up with Debian and we'll test the software environment completely before we hand over your server to ensure that it'll perform flawlessly. You will be able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release throughout the sign-up process, so the apps which you install will be able to get the maximum out of your server. We can also maintain your OS up-to-date when 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'll be able to do anything you like with the machine and you will have full root-level access, yet you will have to be more skillful, as all of the tasks will be performed using a Secure Shell console. If you obtain your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will receive a web interface, through which you can manage domains, files, databases, etc, and this might be the best option if you aren't very experienced, but a particular app which you'd like to use requires Debian. You have access to your Hepsia-equipped server via SSH too, yet the things which you're able to do are limited.
