Debian is a Linux distribution, which is widespread for desktop computers, however it's been gaining popularity as a server OS over the last few years as well. It is really stable and safe, due to the fact that fixes are released within a few days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a vast support community, so when you have any questions or troubles with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it features, you will be able to contact the developers right away through email using special mailing lists and receive a response within 15-20 min. The Debian community gives you the top level of support possible, as all your questions will be handled by the same people who created Debian in the first place, so they have an in-depth knowledge of how their own system works. As the Operating System is absolutely free to use and distribute, no license costs will be included with your web hosting fees and you can customize the program code files and any additional software which you install without restrictions, in order to optimize the software environment for your web sites. What's more, Debian performs really well on any hardware, because it's light and efficient and doesn't need a lot of memory.
Debian in VPS Servers
You are able to acquire a Debian-powered VPS server with all of our VPS plans and you'll be able to choose if the version which will be installed during the server setup process should be 32-bit or 64-bit. In this way, you'll make sure that the software environment will meet the requirements of the apps that you need to run and that the latter will run correctly. Throughout the order process, you may also decide if the VPS will come with the Hepsia Control Panel or without a Control Panel at all. The first option gives you an intuitive graphical interface, through that you're able to manage everything related to your world wide web presence using only a web browser - files, e-mail accounts, databases, and so on. Without Control Panel at hand, you will have to make everything via a console, however you will have full root access and you can set up any software that may not be compatible with Hepsia. You can also add our optional Managed Services package, that includes weekly Operating System updates.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You're able to select the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with just a click on our order page and depending 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'll install later will perform in the very best way. Picking a server without Control Panel, you will get Debian and the Apache web server software and you're able to manage everything through a console. A server which is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel will include all the software which you may need for your Internet sites. Even though with the latter option the root access will be limited, you are able to control the server as if it were a shared hosting account, so that you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you do not have previous expertise in this kind of website hosting service. If you order our Managed Services upgrade, we will take care of your server and will update its OS on a weekly basis in order to make sure that you have the most recent and most safe edition.
