Debian is a Linux release, which is widely used for desktop machines, however it's been gaining popularity as a server OS during the last few years as well. It's really dependable and protected, since fixes are released within a few days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a huge 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 contact the developers right away through email using special mailing lists and receive a reply in 15-20 min. The Debian community gives you the top level of support possible, since your questions will be handled by exactly the same people who made Debian in the first place, so they have an in-depth knowledge of how their own system functions. Because the Operating System is free to use and distribute, no license charges will be added to your web hosting fees and you can customize the code files and any other software which you install with no restrictions, in order to optimize the software environment for your web sites. Furthermore, Debian performs very well on any hardware, because it's light and fast and does not need much memory.

Debian in VPS Servers

When you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the VPS server plans that we supply and select this Operating System on the registration page. You will be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release, since we give you the option to pick the right one, based on the software that you'd like to install on your server once it is up and running. If you are more tech-savvy, you can get a Debian-powered VPS with no Control Panel, so that you will have full root access and you will be able to manage the content and the software via SSH. If you are less experienced, yet you'd like to use software that requires Debian, you'll be able to choose the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel on the order page and you will be able to manage the entire server like a standard shared web hosting account. You can also reap the benefits of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we provide, since it includes weekly Operating System updates performed by our administrators, among many other useful things.

Debian in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that we provide can be set up with Debian and we'll test the software environment in detail before we hand over the machine in order to ensure that it will perform properly. You can choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version during the registration process, so that the apps which you install will be able to get the maximum out of your server. We will also maintain your OS up-to-date when you add the additional Managed Services package to your plan. In case you obtain your Debian-driven server without a website hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to do anything you want with the machine and you will have full root-level access, but you will have to be more experienced, because all the tasks will be performed using a Secure Shell console. When you obtain your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will receive a web interface, via which you'll be able to manage domains, files, databases, etc, and this might be the best option if you are not very experienced, but a specific application which you would like to use requires Debian. You will have access to your Hepsia-equipped server via SSH too, however the things which you are able to do will be restricted.
