Debian is a Linux distribution, that's widely used for desktop machines, yet it's been gaining in popularity as a server OS over the last couple of years as well. It's really stable and secure, because fixes are released in a couple of days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a huge support community, so when you have any kind of questions or problems with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it is equipped with, you will be able to contact the developers directly via electronic mail using special mailing lists and receive a response within 15-20 minutes. The Debian community provides the best level of support possible, because all your questions will be handled by the very same people who made Debian in the first place, so they have an exhaustive knowledge of how their system functions. Since the Operating System is absolutely free to use and distribute, no license costs will be included with your hosting fees and you will be able to modify the program code files and any other software that you install without restrictions, in order to optimize the software environment for your websites. What's more, Debian performs very well on any kind of hardware, because it's light and effective and doesn't require much memory.

Debian in VPS Servers

You'll be able to acquire a Debian-powered VPS server with any of our VPS plans and you'll be able to choose if the version which will be installed throughout the server setup process will be 32-bit or 64-bit. This way, you will ensure that the software environment will match the requirements of the applications which you want to run and that the latter will work efficiently. Throughout the order process, you may also decide if the VPS will come with our Hepsia Control Panel or without a Control Panel at all. The first option will provide you with a handy graphical interface, via which you will be able to control everything related to your online presence using only an Internet browser - files, e-mail accounts, databases, etcetera. Without a Control Panel at hand, you will have to do everything via a console, but you'll have full root access and you will be able to install any software that may not be compatible with Hepsia. In addition, you can add the optional Managed Services package, which includes regular Operating System updates.

Debian in Dedicated Servers

You will be able to select the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with a single click on our order page and based on your choice, we'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS on the machine, so that the software that you'll install later will perform in the very best way. Selecting a server without any Control Panel, you'll receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you will be able to control everything through a console. A server that is acquired with the Hepsia Control Panel will come with all of the software that you'll need for your websites. Although with the latter option the root access will be restricted, you're 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 don't have previous expertise in this type of hosting service. When you buy our Managed Services upgrade, we'll take care of your server and will update its OS every week in order to ensure that you have the most recent and most secure edition.
