Debian is a popular Linux distribution, that is used mainly on PC's, but many people have started using it lately as a web server OS as well, because of the stability and security it offers. The latter is a direct result the fact that Debian is developed and supported by countless qualified volunteers internationally, which means that any patch that is required to fix a particular issue is released within a couple of days. The very same community will also help you with any question or trouble that a user may ever encounter, due to the fact that they can be contacted through e-mail using mailing lists and a competent response will be sent in no more than 15-20 min. The advantage here is that your questions will be addressed by the same people who have made the Operating System itself and they have a detailed knowledge of how it works. As Debian is provided for free, you won't have to pay any kind of license fees to use it and you will be able to customize it as much as you want or need. This is valid for the Operating System and the 30.000+ software packages which are available for it.
Debian in VPS
You can select the Debian Operating System with each virtual private server plan that we provide. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of the options that you will find on the order page, so you can pick the one that is more suitable for the software that you'd like to set up and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be set up either with no Control Panel or with our tailor-made Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you'll have more freedom, because you will have full root access and you are able to use the advantages and the full functionality offered by Debian. In the second case, the root access is limited, yet you are able to control your website content via a web interface, not a console. If you do not have much time to manage your Debian-powered server, or in case you don't have much experience, you can add the Managed Services upgrade to your plan and our admins will handle the regular OS updates.
Debian in Dedicated Hosting
You can pick the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with just a click on our order page and based on your choice, we'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS on your machine, to ensure that the software that you'll install later will work in the very best way. With a server with no Control Panel, you'll receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you're able to control everything using a console. A server which is acquired with the Hepsia Control Panel will include all the software that you may need for your websites. Although with the latter option the root access will be restricted, you're able to manage the server as if it were a shared hosting account, therefore you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you don't have previous expertise in this type of hosting service. When you buy the Managed Services upgrade, we'll maintain your server and will update its OS every week to ensure that you have the most current and most safe version.
