Debian is a Linux distribution, that's widely used for desktop computers, but it's been becoming more popular as a server OS during the last couple of years too. It's very dependable and secure, because fixes are released in just 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 some of the 30,000+ packages it comes with, you'll be able to contact the developers straight away through email using special mailing lists and receive a response in just 15-20 minutes. The Debian community gives you the best level of support possible, since your questions will be handled by the same people who built Debian in the first place, so they have a detailed knowledge of how their system works. As the Operating System is free to use and distribute, no license costs will be added to your hosting fees and you can change the code files and any other software that you install without restrictions, in order to optimize the software environment for your Internet sites. In addition, Debian performs really well on any hardware, because it is light and quick and doesn't require a lot of memory.
Debian in VPS
If you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the virtual private server packages that we offer and choose this Operating System on the order page. You will be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version, since we give you the option to pick the more appropriate one, based on the software that you would like to install on your server once it is set up. If 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're able to control the content and the software through SSH. If you are less experienced, but you would like to use software which requires Debian, you're able to select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page and you'll be able to manage the whole server like a standard shared web hosting account. In addition, you can take advantage of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we provide, because it includes regular Operating System updates performed by our admins, among many other useful things.
Debian in Dedicated Hosting
32-bit and 64-bit versions of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you'll be able to select all of them with just a single click for your brand new server, depending on what software environment the applications which you wish to use require for the best performance. You can also choose whether our Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on the server or if it should come without a Control Panel at all. The first option is made for less experienced users who need a Debian-powered server, yet want to manage it like a shared hosting account, while the second option is suitable for more experienced users who would like to have more control, because ‘no Control Panel' stands for only Debian and the Apache web server software, but no other software installed on the server whatsoever. We'll also save you time and effort with the Managed Services upgrade, because it comes with regular Operating System updates, so that you will have a safe and stable Debian installation.
