Debian is a Linux distribution, which is widely used for desktop computers, however it's been gaining in popularity as a server OS over the last few years too. It is very dependable and risk-free, because fixes are released in just a few days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a huge support community, so when you have any questions or problems with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it comes with, you're able to contact the developers right away through email using special mailing lists and receive a response in just 15-20 minutes. The Debian community provides the top level of support possible, because all your questions will be handled by exactly the same people that made Debian in the first place, so they have a detailed knowledge of how their own system works. Because the Operating System is 100% free to use and distribute, no license charges will be added to your web hosting fees and you will be able to customize the program code files and any other software that you install without restrictions, to optimize the software environment for your sites. Furthermore, Debian performs very well on any kind of hardware, because it's light and effective and does not need a lot of memory.

Debian in VPS Web Hosting

You are able to pick the Debian Operating System with each virtual private server package that we offer. 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are among the options that you can find on the order page, which means that you can select the one that is more suitable for the software that you would like to set up and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be installed either with no Control Panel or with our in-house made Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you'll have more freedom, considering that you will have full root access and you can use the advantages and the full functionality provided by Debian. In the second case, the root access is limited, however you can manage your web content via a web interface, not a console. If you don't have much time to maintain your Debian-powered server, or if you don't have a lot of experience, you could add the Managed Services upgrade to your plan and our admins will take care of the weekly OS updates.

Debian in Dedicated Servers Hosting

32-bit and 64-bit versions of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you'll be able to select all of them with only a mouse click for your new machine, based on what software environment the apps which you plan to use require for the best performance. You can also select whether our Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on the server or whether it should come without any Control Panel at all. The first option is made for inexperienced users who need a Debian-powered server, but would like to manage it like a shared web hosting account, whereas the second option is suitable for more experienced users who wish to have more control, as ‘no Control Panel' means only Debian and the Apache web server software, but no other software installed on the server at all. We'll also save you time and effort with our Managed Services upgrade, since it features regular Operating System updates, so that you will have a safe and stable Debian installation.
