Debian is a Linux distribution, that is preffered for desktop computers, but it's been gaining popularity as a server OS during the last couple of years too. It's very stable and risk-free, since fixes are released within a couple of days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a huge support community, so when you have any questions or problems with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it comes with, you are able to contact the developers directly through email using special mailing lists and receive a reply in 15-20 minutes. The Debian community offers the best level of support possible, since all of 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 own system functions. Because the Operating System is 100% free to use and distribute, no license charges will be included with your web hosting fees and you'll be able to modify the code files and any other software which you install with no restrictions, in order to optimize the software environment for your sites. Furthermore, Debian performs very well on any hardware, because it is light and effective and does not require a lot of memory.
Debian in VPS Hosting
When you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the virtual private server plans that we provide and pick this Operating System on the registration page. You'll be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release, as we give you the option to select the right one, depending on the software which you want to install on your server once it's up and running. If you are more tech-savvy, you may get a Debian-powered VPS without a Control Panel, so you will have full root access and you are able to control the content and the software via SSH. If you are less experienced, but you would like to use an application that requires Debian, you will be able to pick our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel on the order page and you will be able to manage the entire 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 comes with regular Operating System updates performed by our admins, among various other useful things.
Debian in Dedicated Web Hosting
32-bit and 64-bit releases of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you will be able to choose all of them with just a single click for your brand new server, based on what software environment the apps which you would like to use require for optimal performance. You may also select if our Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on the server or if it should come without any Control Panel at all. The first option is made for less experienced users who want a Debian-powered server, but would like to manage it like a shared hosting account, whereas the second option is good for more advanced users who wish to have more control, since ‘no Control Panel' stands for only Debian and the Apache web server software, and no other software set up on the server at all. We can also save your time and effort with the Managed Services upgrade, as it includes regular Operating System updates, so that you will have a safe and stable Debian installation.
