Debian is a Linux release, that is preffered for desktop computers, yet it has been gaining popularity as a server Operating System over the last couple of years as well. It's really dependable and safe, because fixes are released in a few days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a huge support community, so when you have any questions or troubles with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it features, you are able to contact the developers without delay through electronic mail using special mailing lists and receive a response within 15-20 min. The Debian community offers the top level of support possible, as all your questions will be handled by the very same people that built Debian in the first place, so they have an exhaustive knowledge of how their system works. Since the Operating System is 100% free to use and distribute, no license costs will be added to your website hosting fees and you'll be able to change the program code files and any additional software that you install with no 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 doesn't require much memory.

Debian in VPS

You'll be able to get a Debian-powered virtual private server with any of our VPS solutions and you can choose if the version which will be installed during the server setup process will be 32-bit or 64-bit. Thus, you'll guarantee that the software environment will match the requirements of the apps which you want to run and that the latter will work efficiently. During the order process, you may also select whether the VPS will come with our Hepsia Control Panel or without any Control Panel at all. The first option will give you an easy-to-use graphical interface, through that you are able to manage everything related to your web presence using only an Internet browser - files, e-mail accounts, databases, etc. Without Control Panel at hand, you'll need to do everything via a console, but you will have full root access and you'll be able to set up any kind of software that may not be compatible with Hepsia. You may also add our optional Managed Services package, which includes regular Operating System updates.

Debian in Dedicated Hosting

You will be able to choose the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with only a click on our order page and according to your choice, we will set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS on your machine, to ensure that the software that you'll install later will work in the best way. With a server without any Control Panel, you'll get Debian and the Apache web server software and you're able to control everything through a console. A server which is acquired with our Hepsia Control Panel will feature all the software that you will need for your web sites. Though with the latter option the root access will be limited, you will be able to control the server as if it were a shared web hosting account, thus you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you have no previous experience with this kind of web hosting service. If you get our Managed Services upgrade, we will take care of your server and will update its OS weekly so as to ensure that you have the most current and most risk-free version.
