Debian is a Linux release, that is preffered for desktop machines, but it has been becoming more popular as a server OS during the last few years as well. It is very dependable and protected, because fixes are released in a few days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a large support community, so if you have any questions or troubles with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it includes, you can contact the developers straight away through email using special e-mail lists and receive a response within 15-20 minutes. The Debian community supplies the top level of support possible, since all of your questions will be handled by the same people that made Debian in the first place, so they have a detailed knowledge of how their system operates. Because the Operating System is free to use and distribute, no license charges will be added to your web hosting fees and you'll be able to customize the program code files and any other software which you install without restrictions, in order to optimize the software environment for your websites. In addition, Debian performs very well on any kind of hardware, because it's light and quick and doesn't need a lot of memory.
Debian in VPS
You're able to select the Debian Operating System with each virtual private server plan that we supply. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are among the options that you will find on the order page, which means that you can select the one that is more suitable for the software that you'd like to set up and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be set up either without Control Panel or with our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you will have more freedom, as you will have full root access and you can make use of the advantages and the full functionality offered by Debian. In the second case, the root access is restricted, however you are able to control your website content via a web interface, not a console. If you don't have a lot of time to command your Debian-powered server, or if you don't have a lot of experience, you could add the Managed Services upgrade to your package and our admins will take care of the regular OS updates.
Debian in Dedicated Hosting
Each dedicated server that we offer can be set up with Debian and we will test the software environment carefully before we hand over your machine in order to make sure that it'll perform properly. You will be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release during the signup process, so that the applications that you set up can get the maximum out of your server. We can also keep your Operating System up-to-date if you add the additional Managed Services package to your plan. If you obtain your Debian-driven server without a hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to do anything you want with the machine and you'll have full root-level access, but you'll have to be more experienced, since all the tasks will be performed through a Secure Shell console. When you acquire your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll get a web interface, through which you can manage domains, files, databases, and many others, and this might be the best option if you are not very experienced, and a particular application that you wish to use requires Debian. You can access your Hepsia-equipped server via SSH as well, however the things that you can do will be limited.
