Debian is a Linux distribution, which is preffered for desktop computers, but it's been gaining popularity as a server OS over the last couple of years too. It is very dependable and safe, due to the fact that fixes are released in a couple of days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a vast support community, so when you have any kind of questions or problems with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it includes, you can contact the developers immediately via e-mail using special e-mail lists and receive a response within 15-20 minutes. The Debian community supplies the best level of support possible, since your questions will be handled by the very same people who built Debian in the first place, so they have an in-depth knowledge of how their own system functions. As the Operating System is free to use and distribute, no license costs will be included with your website hosting fees and you can modify the program code files and any other software that you install without restrictions, in order to optimize the software environment for your web sites. In addition, Debian performs very well on any hardware, because it's light and quick and does not need a lot of memory.
Debian in VPS Web Hosting
There are several Operating Systems that we supply with our Linux VPS web hosting packages and Debian is one of them, therefore if you need a server with this OS, you will be able to get one in less than one hour. We also offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS to ensure that the VPS you'll receive will completely cover the system requirements of any web or offline app that you need to install on the server. Managing the content on the server can be done in two ways, based on the choice you make on the order page. With no Control Panel, you're able to do everything on your Debian-equipped server through Secure Shell, as you will have root-level access, while using the Hepsia Control Panel, the root access will have some restrictions, but you'll be able to do everything through your web browser using a handy web interface, even when you aren't very experienced. With the optional Managed Services package that we supply, we can also maintain your Debian OS up to date on a weekly basis, saving you time and effort.
Debian in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You're able to choose the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with a mouse click on our order page and depending on your choice, we will set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS on the machine, so that the software that you will install later will perform in the right way. Selecting a server without Control Panel, you will get Debian and the Apache web server software and you are able to control everything using a console. A server which is obtained with our Hepsia Control Panel will come with all of the software which you'll need for your sites. Though with the latter option the root access will be restricted, you will be able to control the server as if it were a shared hosting account, therefore you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you have no previous experience with this type of website hosting service. If you purchase the Managed Services upgrade, we'll take care of your server and will update its OS every week in order to ensure that you have the most recent and most risk-free version.
