Debian is a Linux distribution, that is widespread for desktop machines, but it has been gaining popularity as a server Operating System over the last couple of years too. It is really dependable and safe, because fixes are released within a few days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a large support community, so when you have any kind of questions or troubles with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it is equipped with, you can easily contact the developers without delay via e-mail using special e-mail lists and receive a response in 15-20 min. The Debian community supplies the best level of support possible, as all of your questions will be handled by exactly the same people who created Debian in the first place, so they have a thorough knowledge of how their system operates. As the Operating System is 100% free to use and distribute, no license costs will be included with your hosting fees and you'll be able to change the code files and any additional software that you install without restrictions, to optimize the software environment for your websites. What's more, Debian performs really well on any kind of hardware, as it is light and fast and doesn't require much memory.

Debian in VPS Hosting

When you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the virtual private server plans that we offer and select this Operating System on the order page. You will be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release, as we give you the option to choose the more appropriate one, according to the software that you'd like to install on your server once it's set up. In case you are more tech-savvy, you can get a Debian-powered VPS with no Control Panel, so that you'll have full root access and you will be able to manage the content and the software through SSH. If you are less experienced, yet you'd like to use an application that requires Debian, you can choose the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel on the order page and you will be able to manage the entire server like a standard shared web hosting account. In addition, you can reap the benefits of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we supply, as it includes once a week Operating System updates performed by our administrators, among other useful things.

Debian in Dedicated Web Hosting

You'll be able to select 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 release of the OS on your machine, so that the software that you'll install later will work in the very best way. Picking a server with no Control Panel, you will receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you'll be able to manage everything through a console. A server that's ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel will come with all the software that you'll need for your Internet sites. Though with the latter option the root access is restricted, you'll be able to control the server as if it were a shared web hosting account, so that you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you do not have previous experience with this kind of web hosting service. When you buy the Managed Services upgrade, we will take care of your server and will update its OS on a weekly basis to ensure that you have the most recent and most secure version.
