Debian is a Linux release, that is widespread for desktop machines, yet it has been becoming more popular as a server OS over the last few years too. It's very stable and secure, because fixes are released in a couple of days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a large support community, so if you have any questions or issues with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it comes with, you can easily contact the developers straight away via electronic mail using special e-mail lists and receive a response within 15-20 minutes. The Debian community offers the top level of support possible, because all your questions will be handled by the very 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 absolutely free to use and distribute, no license costs will be included with your web hosting fees and you'll be able to modify the program code files and any other software that you install with no restrictions, so as to optimize the software environment for your web sites. Furthermore, Debian performs really well on any kind of hardware, as it's light and effective and doesn't need much memory.
Debian in VPS Web Hosting
There are a few Operating Systems that we provide with our Linux VPS web hosting
and Debian is one of them, which means that if you'd like to have a server with this OS, you can acquire one in under one hour. We also offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS to ensure that the VPS you will obtain will fully cover the system requirements of any kind of web or offline app that you need to install on the server. Managing the content on the server can be performed in two ways, depending on the choice you make on the order page. With no Control Panel, you can do everything on your Debian-equipped server using Secure Shell, as you'll have root-level access, while using the Hepsia Control Panel, the root access will have certain restrictions, but you can do everything from your web browser using an intuitive web interface, even when you aren't very experienced. With the optional Managed Services package which we offer, we can also maintain your Debian OS up to date every week, saving you time and effort.
Debian in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You can choose the Debian OS for your new dedicated server
with just a mouse click on our registration page and depending on your choice, we'll install the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS on the machine, so that the software that you'll install later will work in the best way. Selecting a server without any Control Panel, you'll receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you can manage everything using a console. A server which is obtained with the Hepsia Control Panel will include all the software that you will need for your websites. Although with the latter option the root access will be restricted, you can manage the server as if it were a shared hosting account, thus you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you do not have previous expertise in this type of hosting service. When you get the Managed Services upgrade, we will take care of your server and will update its OS on a weekly basis to make sure that you have the most current and most safe release.
