Debian is a Linux release, which is widespread for desktop computers, but it has been gaining in popularity as a server OS during the last few years as well. It is really dependable and secure, due to the fact that fixes are released within a few days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a vast support community, so when you have any questions or issues with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it is equipped with, you are able to contact the developers without delay via email using special e-mail lists and receive a response within 15-20 min. The Debian community offers the best level of support possible, since all your questions will be handled by the very same people that made Debian in the first place, so they have an exhaustive knowledge of how their system works. Since 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 program code files and any additional software which you install without restrictions, so as to optimize the software environment for your Internet sites. What's more, Debian performs really well on any hardware, as it is light and efficient and does not need a lot of memory.

Debian in VPS Servers

You are able to obtain a Debian-powered VPS server with any of our VPS packages and you will be able to choose if the version which will be installed during the server setup process should be 32-bit or 64-bit. In this way, you'll ensure that the software environment will match the system requirements of the applications which you wish to run and that the latter will work effectively. During the order process, you may also select whether the VPS will come with the Hepsia Control Panel or without any Control Panel at all. The first option provides you with an easy to navigate graphical interface, via that you're able to control everything related to your web presence using only a web browser - files, e-mail accounts, databases, etc. Without Control Panel at hand, you will have to make everything through a console, however you'll have full root access and you can set up any kind of software that may not be compatible with Hepsia. You can also add the optional Managed Services package, which includes regular Operating System updates.

Debian in Dedicated Servers

You can choose the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with just a mouse click on our order page and based on your choice, we will install the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS on your machine, to ensure that the software that you'll install later will work in the right way. Using a server without any Control Panel, you will get Debian and the Apache web server software and you will be able to manage everything through a console. A server that is obtained with our Hepsia Control Panel will include all of the software that you'll need for your Internet sites. Although with the latter option the root access will be restricted, you are able to manage the server as if it were a shared website hosting account, so you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you have no previous experience with this type of hosting service. When you purchase our Managed Services upgrade, we will maintain your server and will update its OS every week to ensure that you have the most current and most secure edition.
