Debian is a Linux release, that is widely used for desktop machines, yet it's been gaining in popularity as a server Operating System over the last few years too. It is very stable and protected, since fixes are released in just a couple of days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a large support community, so if you have any kind of questions or problems with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it is equipped with, you're able to contact the developers right away through electronic mail using special e-mail lists and receive a response in 15-20 minutes. The Debian community supplies the top level of support possible, because all of your questions will be handled by the very same people that made Debian in the first place, so they have a thorough knowledge of how their system operates. As the Operating System is absolutely free to use and distribute, no license costs will be added to your website hosting fees and you will be able to customize the code files and any additional software that you install without any restrictions, in order to optimize the software environment for your websites. Furthermore, Debian performs really well on any hardware, as it is light and efficient and doesn't require much memory.
Debian in VPS Servers
You'll be able to select the Debian Operating System with each VPS server package that we offer. 32-bit and 64-bit versions 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 set up either with no Control Panel or with our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you have more freedom, as you will have full root access and you will be able to make use of the advantages and the full functionality supplied by Debian. In the second case, the root access is restricted, yet you will be able to control your world wide web content through a web interface, not a console. If you do not have much time to take care of your Debian-powered server, or if you don't have a lot of experience, you can add the Managed Services upgrade to your plan and our administrators will handle the weekly OS updates.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
With our dedicated servers, you are able to get a website hosting powerhouse running Debian right away. This Operating System is one of the options that you'll get during the registration process and you're able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit release, depending on what software environment your apps need. If you need to have full root access, you can obtain a server with no Control Panel, so you will have more freedom when it comes to what you can do with your machine using SSH. If you have less experience, but you need Debian for a certain piece of software, you are able to get the server with our Hepsia Control Panel. Regardless that the root access will be more limited, you will be able to do anything related to your world wide web content easily through a time and effort saving graphical interface. When you add the optional Managed Services bundle to your dedicated server plan, our sysadmins will handle the weekly OS enhancements. They'll perform various other important tasks on your behalf as well.
