Debian is a Linux distribution, that's widely used for desktop computers, yet it's been gaining popularity as a server OS during the last couple of years as well. It is very dependable and secure, due to the fact that fixes are released in just 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 comes with, you are able to contact the developers directly through e-mail using special mailing lists and receive a response in just 15-20 minutes. The Debian community provides the best level of support possible, because all of your questions will be handled by exactly the same people who made Debian in the first place, so they have an in-depth knowledge of how their own system operates. Because the Operating System is free to use and distribute, no license charges will be included with your website hosting fees and you will be able to modify the code files and any additional software which you install with no restrictions, so as to optimize the software environment for your sites. What's more, Debian performs very well on any kind of hardware, because it's light and quick and does not need a lot of memory.
Debian in VPS
If you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the virtual private server plans that we supply and choose this Operating System on the registration page. You can pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version, as we give you the option to select the right one, according to the software which you wish to install on your server once it is set up. If you are more tech-savvy, you can get a Debian-powered VPS without a Control Panel, and you'll have full root access and you'll be able to manage the content and the software through SSH. In case you are less experienced, but you would like to use an app which requires Debian, you are able to select our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel on the order page and you can manage the whole server like a standard shared hosting account. In addition, you can reap the benefits of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we supply, as it includes once a week Operating System updates performed by our admins, among various other useful things.
Debian in Dedicated Hosting
Each dedicated server that we supply can be installed with Debian and we'll test the software environment in depth before we hand over your server so as to make sure that it will perform flawlessly. You are able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version during the signup process, so the applications that you install will be able to get the maximum out of your server. We will also maintain your OS up-to-date when you add the additional Managed Services package to your plan. If you acquire 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'll have to be more skillful, as all of the tasks will be performed through a Secure Shell console. When you obtain your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will get a web interface, via which you can control domains, files, databases, etc, and this might be the best option in case you are not very experienced, but a specific application which you need to use requires Debian. You can access your Hepsia-equipped server via SSH as well, yet the things that you will be able to do will be restricted.
