Debian is a Linux release, which is preffered for desktop machines, however it has been becoming more popular as a server OS over the last few years as well. It's really dependable and secure, since fixes are released within a couple of days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a huge support community, so when you have any questions or troubles with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it comes with, you can easily contact the developers immediately via email using special e-mail lists and receive a response in just 15-20 min. The Debian community offers the best level of support possible, as all your questions will be handled by exactly the same people that built Debian in the first place, so they have an in-depth knowledge of how their own system operates. As the Operating System is 100% free to use and distribute, no license costs will be added to your hosting fees and you will be able to customize the code files and any additional software that you install without restrictions, to optimize the software environment for your web sites. Furthermore, Debian performs very well on any hardware, as it is light and efficient and doesn't require a lot of memory.

Debian in VPS Hosting

You will be able to choose the Debian Operating System with each virtual private server plan that we provide. 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 will be more suitable for the software that you would like to install and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be installed either with no Control Panel or with our custom Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you have more freedom, because you will have full root access and you will be able to take advantage of the advantages and the full functionality supplied by Debian. In the second case, the root access will be limited, yet you'll be able to control your online content through a web interface, not a console. In case you don't have much time to manage your Debian-powered server, or if you don't have much experience, you could add the Managed Services upgrade to your package and our administrators will handle the regular OS updates.

Debian in Dedicated Web Hosting

32-bit and 64-bit versions of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you are able to choose any of them with just a click for your brand new machine, based on what software environment the apps that you wish to use require for the best performance. You may also choose whether our Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on the server or if it should come without Control Panel at all. The first option is made for inexperienced users who want a Debian-powered server, yet would like to manage it like a shared website hosting account, while the second option is suitable for more advanced users who would like 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 you time and effort with our Managed Services upgrade, because it includes routine Operating System updates, so that you will have a secure and stable Debian installation.
