Debian is a Linux distribution, that's preffered for desktop machines, yet it's been becoming more popular as a server OS over the last couple of years as well. It is very stable and risk-free, as fixes are released in a couple of days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a huge 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're able to contact the developers right away through email using special e-mail lists and receive a response in just 15-20 min. The Debian community offers the top level of support possible, as all of your questions will be handled by the same people who created Debian in the first place, so they have an exhaustive 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 hosting fees and you'll be able to change the code files and any other software that you install without any restrictions, in order to optimize the software environment for your web sites. What's more, Debian performs very well on any kind of hardware, because it's light and efficient and doesn't require a lot of memory.
Debian in VPS Servers
You're able to select the Debian Operating System with each and every VPS server plan that we supply. 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are among the options that you can find on the order page, which means that you can pick the one that will be more suitable for the software that you'd like to install and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be installed either with no Control Panel or with our tailor-made Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you have more freedom, due to the fact that you will have full root access and you're able to use the advantages and the full functionality provided by Debian. In the second case, the root access will be restricted, yet you can control your website content via a web interface, not a console. In case you do not have a lot of time to take care of your Debian-powered server, or if you do not have substantial experience, you can add the Managed Services upgrade to your package and our administrators will handle the weekly OS updates.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
Each and every dedicated server that we supply can be installed with Debian and we'll test the program environment completely before we hand over your server so as to make sure that it will perform appropriately. You can pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release throughout the signup process, so the applications that you install can get the maximum out of your server. We will also keep your Operating System up-to-date if you add the additional Managed Services package to your plan. When you get your Debian-driven server without a website hosting Control Panel, you will be able to do anything you like with the machine and you will have full root-level access, however you will have to be more experienced, since all of the tasks will be performed using a Secure Shell console. When you get your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll get a web interface, via which you can manage domains, files, databases, etcetera, and this might be the best option if you are not very experienced, but a particular application that you need to use requires Debian. You can access your Hepsia-equipped server through SSH as well, yet the things which you'll be able to do will be limited.
