Debian is a Linux release, that's preffered for desktop computers, but it's been gaining in popularity as a server Operating System over the last couple of years as well. It's very dependable and safe, because fixes are released in just a couple of days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a vast support community, so if you have any questions or issues with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it is equipped with, you'll be able to contact the developers straight away via electronic mail using special e-mail lists and receive a response in 15-20 min. The Debian community offers the top level of support possible, since your questions will be handled by exactly the same people that made Debian in the first place, so they have an exhaustive knowledge of how their own system operates. As the Operating System is absolutely free to use and distribute, no license charges will be added to your web hosting fees and you'll be able to change the code files and any additional software which you install without any restrictions, so as to optimize the software environment for your sites. Furthermore, Debian performs very well on any kind of hardware, because it is light and effective and does not require a lot of memory.

Debian in VPS Servers

You are able to get a Debian-powered VPS server with any of our VPS plans and you can choose if the version which will be installed during the server setup process will be 32-bit or 64-bit. Thus, you'll make sure that the software environment will meet the requirements of the apps which you want to run and that the latter will run appropriately. During the order process, you may also decide if the VPS will come with the Hepsia Control Panel or without a Control Panel at all. The first option provides you with an intuitive graphical interface, through which you will be able to manage everything related to your web presence using only a web browser - files, email addresses, databases, and so on. With no Control Panel at hand, you'll have to do everything through a console, however you'll have full root access and you will be able to install any software that may not be supported by Hepsia. In addition, you can add the optional Managed Services package, which includes regular Operating System updates.

Debian in Dedicated Servers

32-bit and 64-bit releases of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you can pick any of them with just a single click for your brand new machine, based on what software environment the apps that you wish to use require for the best performance. You can also choose if our Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on the server or if it should come without any Control Panel at all. The first option is suitable for less experienced users who need a Debian-powered server, yet would like to manage it like a shared web hosting account, whereas the second option is suitable for more experienced users who need to have more control, because ‘no Control Panel' stands for only Debian and the Apache web server software, but no other software set up on the server whatsoever. We can also save your time and effort with our Managed Services upgrade, since it includes regular Operating System updates, to ensure that you'll have a secure and stable Debian installation.
