Debian is a Linux distribution, that's widely used for desktop computers, but it's been gaining in popularity as a server Operating System during the last few years as well. It is really stable and safe, since fixes are released in just a couple of days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a large support community, so when you have any kind of questions or troubles with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it comes with, you'll be able to contact the developers without delay through email using special e-mail lists and receive a reply within 15-20 min. The Debian community gives you the best level of support possible, as all of your questions will be handled by exactly the same people that built Debian in the first place, so they have a thorough knowledge of how their own system works. Because the Operating System is free to use and distribute, no license costs will be added to your hosting fees and you'll be able to change the 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 really well on any kind of hardware, as it's light and efficient and does not require much memory.
Debian in VPS Servers
You will be able to obtain a Debian-powered VPS server with all of our VPS plans and you will be able to choose if the version that will be installed throughout the server setup process should be 32-bit or 64-bit. This way, you'll ensure that the software environment will match the system requirements of the applications which you need to run and that the latter will function appropriately. During the order process, you may also select if the VPS will come with our Hepsia Control Panel or without Control Panel at all. The first option gives you an easy-to-work-with graphical interface, through which you are able to manage everything related to your web presence using only a web browser - files, e-mails, databases, and many more. Without Control Panel at hand, you will have to make everything via a console, but you'll have full root access and you'll be able to set up any software that may not be supported by Hepsia. You can also add our optional Managed Services package, that includes regular Operating System updates.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
Each and every dedicated server that we supply can be set up with Debian and we will test the program environment in depth before we hand over the machine so as to ensure that it will perform perfectly. You are able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version during the sign-up process, so that the applications that you install can get the maximum out of your server. We will also maintain your Operating System up-to-date when you add the additional Managed Services package to your plan. When you order your Debian-driven server without a hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to do anything you want with the machine and you will have full root-level access, but you will need to be more experienced, since all of the tasks will be performed through a Secure Shell console. When you get your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will receive a web interface, via which you'll be able to control domains, files, databases, etc, and this might be the best option if you aren't very experienced, and a certain application that you intend to use requires Debian. You have access to your Hepsia-equipped server via SSH as well, but the things that you'll be able to do are restricted.
