Debian is a Linux distribution, that's widely used for desktop machines, however it's been gaining in popularity as a server OS over the last couple of years as well. It is really stable and risk-free, because fixes are released within a couple of days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a vast support community, so if you have any questions or issues with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it features, you're able to contact the developers directly via email using special mailing lists and receive a response within 15-20 min. The Debian community gives you the best level of support possible, as all of your questions will be handled by exactly the same people that built Debian in the first place, so they have a detailed knowledge of how their own system functions. Because the Operating System is 100% free to use and distribute, no license charges will be included with your web hosting fees and you'll be able to customize the code files and any additional software that you install with no restrictions, so as to optimize the software environment for your sites. What's more, Debian performs really well on any kind of hardware, as it's light and quick and does not need a lot of memory.
Debian in VPS Servers
When you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the VPS server solutions that we provide and choose this Operating System on the registration page. You can pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version, since we give you the option to choose the more appropriate one, according to the software which you'd like to install on your server once it is set up. When you're more tech-savvy, you can get a Debian-powered VPS without a Control Panel, so that you will have full root access and you will be able to control the content and the software via SSH. In case you are less experienced, but you would like to use software which requires Debian, you will be able to select our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel on the order page and you'll be able to manage the whole server like a standard shared hosting account. You may also take advantage of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we provide, as it includes weekly Operating System updates done by our administrators, among many other useful things.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
Each and every dedicated server that we offer can be installed with Debian and we will test the software environment thoroughly before we hand over the machine in order to make sure that it'll perform properly. You're able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release during the sign-up process, so the apps that you set up will be able to get the maximum out of your server. We can also maintain your OS up-to-date if you add the additional Managed Services package to your plan. In case you acquire your Debian-driven server without a web hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to do anything you want with your machine and you'll have full root-level access, yet you'll have to be more skillful, because all the tasks will be performed using a Secure Shell console. If you get your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will have a web interface, through which you'll be able to control domains, files, databases, etc, and this might be the best option if you aren't very experienced, but a specific app which you would like to use requires Debian. You can access your Hepsia-equipped server through SSH too, but the things which you're able to do are limited.
