Debian is a popular Linux distribution, that is used primarily on PC's, but many people have begun using it lately as a web server Operating System as well, because of the stability and security it offers. The latter is a result of the fact that Debian is developed and supported by countless qualified volunteers internationally, therefore any patch which is needed to fix some issue is released in a few days. The same community will also help you with any question or problem that a user may ever experience, as they can be contacted through e-mail using e-mail lists and a qualified response will be sent in around 15-20 minutes. The advantage here is that your questions will be responded to by the same people who have made the Operating System itself and they have an in-depth knowledge of how it functions. As Debian is absolutely free, you will not need to pay any kind of license fees to use it and you'll be able to personalize it as much as you want or need. This is valid for both the Operating System and the 30.000+ software packages that are readily available for it.
Debian in VPS Servers
You will be able to choose the Debian Operating System with each and every VPS server
plan that we provide. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are among the options that you will find on the order page, so you can pick the one that will be more suitable for the software that you need to install and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be installed either without Control Panel or with our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you have more freedom, due to the fact that you will have full root access and you're able to take advantage of the advantages and the full functionality provided by Debian. In the second case, the root access is restricted, but you'll be able to manage your web content via a web interface, not a console. If you do not have a lot of time to maintain your Debian-powered server, or if you do not have a lot of experience, you are able to add the Managed Services upgrade to your plan and our admins will handle the regular OS updates.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You will be able to choose the Debian OS for your new dedicated server
with only a click on our order page and according to your choice, we'll install the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS on the machine, so that the software that you'll install later will work in the right way. Selecting a server with no Control Panel, you will get Debian and the Apache web server software and you'll be able to control everything using a console. A server that is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel will come with all the software which you'll need for your sites. Although with the latter option the root access will be limited, you can control the server as if it were a shared web hosting account, which means that you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you have no previous expertise in this kind of hosting service. If you get our Managed Services upgrade, we'll maintain your server and will update its OS weekly to make sure that you have the most current and most safe release.
