Debian is a Linux release, which is preffered for desktop computers, but it has been gaining in popularity as a server OS during the last couple of years as well. It is very dependable and secure, as fixes are released within a couple of days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a large support community, so if you have any questions or troubles with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it includes, you'll be able to contact the developers immediately via e-mail using special mailing lists and receive a reply in 15-20 min. The Debian community supplies the top level of support possible, since 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. Because the Operating System is free to use and distribute, no license costs will be added to your web hosting fees and you can customize the code files and any other software which you install without any restrictions, to optimize the software environment for your sites. In addition, Debian performs very well on any hardware, as it is light and efficient and doesn't need a lot of memory.
Debian in VPS Servers
You are able to obtain a Debian-powered VPS server with any of our VPS solutions and you will be able to choose if the version that will be installed during the server setup process should be 32-bit or 64-bit. Thus, you will guarantee that the software environment will meet the system requirements of the applications which you wish to run and that the latter will function appropriately. Throughout the order process, you may also choose whether the VPS will come with the Hepsia Control Panel or without a Control Panel at all. The first option provides you with a user-friendly graphical interface, via that you are able to manage everything related to your web presence using only a web browser - files, email addresses, databases, and so on. Without a Control Panel at hand, you will need to make everything through a console, but you'll have full root access and you'll be able to set up any software that may not be compatible with Hepsia. In addition, you can add the optional Managed Services package, that includes weekly Operating System updates.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
32-bit and 64-bit releases of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you're able to choose any of them with just a single click for your new machine, based on what software environment the apps that you wish to use require for optimal performance. You can also choose whether our Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on the server or if it should come without Control Panel at all. The first option is suitable for less experienced users who need a Debian-powered server, yet want to control it like a shared hosting account, while the second option is suitable for more advanced users who need to have more control, because ‘no Control Panel' means only Debian and the Apache web server software, and no other software set up on the server at all. We'll also save your time and effort with our Managed Services upgrade, since it comes with routine Operating System updates, to ensure that you'll have a safe and stable Debian installation.
