Debian is a Linux distribution, which is preffered for desktop computers, yet it's been gaining popularity as a server OS during the last few years as well. It's very stable and protected, as fixes are released in a few days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a huge support community, so if you have any kind of questions or issues with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it is equipped with, you'll be able to contact the developers directly via email using special mailing lists and receive a reply within 15-20 min. The Debian community provides the top level of support possible, because all your questions will be handled by exactly the same people that created Debian in the first place, so they have an in-depth knowledge of how their system works. Since the Operating System is absolutely free to use and distribute, no license charges will be included with your web hosting fees and you can change the program code files and any additional software that you install without restrictions, in order to optimize the software environment for your Internet sites. Furthermore, Debian performs very well on any hardware, because it's light and quick and does not need much memory.
Debian in VPS Hosting
You are able to choose the Debian Operating System with each and every virtual private server
solution that we supply. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of the options that you'll find on the order page, so you can select the one that will be more suitable for the software that you would like to set up and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be installed either without any Control Panel or with our in-house made 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 use the advantages and the full functionality supplied by Debian. In the second case, the root access is limited, yet you'll be able to control your website content via a web interface, not a console. In case you don't have a lot of time to take care of your Debian-powered server, or if you don't have substantial experience, you're able to add the Managed Services upgrade to your package and our administrators will handle the regular OS updates.
Debian in Dedicated Web Hosting
Each dedicated server
that we offer can be set up with Debian and we will test the software environment completely before we hand over your server to make sure that it'll perform perfectly. You will be able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release during the registration process, so that the applications which you set up can get the maximum out of your server. We will also keep your OS up-to-date if you add the additional Managed Services package to your plan. When you acquire your Debian-driven server without a hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to do anything you want with the machine and you'll have full root-level access, but you'll have to be more experienced, as all of 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'll get a web interface, via which you'll be able to manage domains, files, databases, etcetera, and this might be a better option when you aren't very experienced, and a certain app which you want to use requires Debian. You can access your Hepsia-equipped server through SSH too, however the things that you will be able to do will be limited.
