Debian is a Linux distribution, that is widely used for desktop machines, yet it's been becoming more popular as a server OS during the last couple of years as well. It's really stable and safe, as fixes are released in just a few days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a large support community, so when you have any kind of questions or issues with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it features, you are able to contact the developers immediately via email using special e-mail lists and receive a response in just 15-20 min. The Debian community gives you the best level of support possible, as your questions will be handled by the same people who made Debian in the first place, so they have an exhaustive knowledge of how their own system functions. Because the Operating System is 100% free to use and distribute, no license costs will be included with your web hosting fees and you can change the code files and any other software that you install with no restrictions, to optimize the software environment for your Internet sites. What's more, Debian performs very well on any kind of hardware, as it is light and efficient and does not require a lot of memory.

Debian in VPS Web Hosting

You'll be able to pick the Debian Operating System with each and every virtual private server plan that we provide. 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are among the options that you will find on the order page, so you can pick the one that will be more suitable for the software that you need to install and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be set up either without any Control Panel or with our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you'll have more freedom, as you will have full root access and you'll be able to take advantage of the advantages and the full functionality provided by Debian. In the second case, the root access is restricted, but you can manage your online content through a web interface, not a console. In case you don't have much time to maintain your Debian-powered server, or in case you do not have a lot of experience, you could add the Managed Services upgrade to your plan and our admins will take care of the weekly OS updates.

Debian in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You will be able to choose the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with a click on our order page and according to your choice, we'll install the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS on the machine, to ensure that the software that you will install later will perform in the very best way. Selecting a server without Control Panel, you'll receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you will be able to manage everything through a console. A server that's obtained with our Hepsia Control Panel will come with all of the software that you may need for your web sites. Though with the latter option the root access will be restricted, you're able to manage the server as if it were a shared hosting account, which means that you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you have no previous expertise in this type of hosting service. When you buy our Managed Services upgrade, we will maintain your server and will update its OS on a weekly basis so as to ensure that you have the latest and most secure release.
