Debian is a Linux distribution, which is widely used for desktop computers, however it has been gaining in popularity as a server Operating System over the last couple of years too. It is very stable and risk-free, since fixes are released in just a couple of days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a vast support community, so when you have any questions or problems with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it comes with, you are able to contact the developers straight away via e-mail using special mailing lists and receive a response in just 15-20 minutes. The Debian community gives you the top level of support possible, because your questions will be handled by the very same people that made Debian in the first place, so they have an exhaustive knowledge of how their system works. As the Operating System is free to use and distribute, no license charges will be included with your website hosting fees and you'll be able to customize the program code files and any additional software which you install with no restrictions, to optimize the software environment for your websites. In addition, Debian performs very well on any kind of hardware, because it is light and fast and doesn't require much memory.
Debian in VPS
There're a few Operating Systems that we offer with our Linux VPS packages and Debian is one of them, which means that if you'd like to have a server with this OS, you can have one in under one hour. We also offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS to ensure that the VPS you will obtain will fully cover the system requirements of any kind of web or offline application that you need to install on the server. Controlling the content on the server can be done in two ways, based on the choice you make on the order page. With no Control Panel, you are able to do everything on your Debian-equipped server through Secure Shell, as you'll have root-level access, while using the Hepsia Control Panel, the root access will have certain restrictions, but you can do everything from your browser using a handy web interface, even if you are not very experienced. When you use the optional Managed Services package that we offer, we'll also maintain your Debian OS up to date on a weekly basis, saving you effort and time.
Debian in Dedicated Hosting
You'll be able to choose the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server with just a mouse click on our order page and based on your choice, we will set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS on the machine, to ensure that the software that you will install later will work in the very best way. Selecting a server without any Control Panel, you will get Debian and the Apache web server software and you're able to control everything through a console. A server that is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel will include all the software which you'll need for your web sites. Although with the latter option the root access will be limited, you will be able to manage the server as if it were a shared hosting account, therefore you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you have no previous expertise in this kind of website hosting service. If you buy the Managed Services upgrade, we will maintain your server and will update its OS weekly so as to make sure that you have the most recent and most risk-free edition.
