Discover why lots of system administrators head straight for Debian when selecting an OS for their servers.
Debian is a Linux distribution, that's widely used for desktop machines, however it has been gaining in popularity as a server OS over the last few years too. It's really dependable and secure, since fixes are released within a few days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a huge support community, so when you have any questions or troubles with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it features, you can easily contact the developers directly via e-mail using special e-mail lists and receive a reply in just 15-20 min. The Debian community offers the top level of support possible, since all of your questions will be handled by the same people that created Debian in the first place, so they have a detailed knowledge of how their system works. Because the Operating System is absolutely free to use and distribute, no license costs will be added to your hosting fees and you can change the program code files and any other software that you install without restrictions, so as to optimize the software environment for your Internet sites. In addition, Debian performs very well on any kind of hardware, as it's light and quick 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 solutions and you can choose if the version that will be installed during the server setup process will be 32-bit or 64-bit. Thus, you'll make sure that the software environment will match the requirements of the applications that you need to run and that the latter will function efficiently. Throughout the order process, you can also decide if the VPS will come with the Hepsia Control Panel or without any Control Panel at all. The first option will provide you with a user-friendly graphical interface, via that you are able to manage everything related to your web presence using only a web browser - files, email addresses, databases, and many more. With no Control Panel at hand, you will need to make everything via a console, but you will have full root access and you will be able to install any kind of software that may not be compatible with Hepsia. In addition, you can add the optional Managed Services package, that includes weekly Operating System updates.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
32-bit and 64-bit releases of Debian are available on our dedicated server
order page and you're able to pick all of them with only a click for your new server, depending on what software environment the applications which you wish to use require for top notch performance. You can also choose whether our Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on the server or whether it should come without a Control Panel at all. The first option is suitable for inexperienced users who want a Debian-powered server, but want to control it like a shared website hosting account, whereas the second option is suitable for more advanced users who want to have more control, because ‘no Control Panel' means only Debian and the Apache web server software, but no other software installed on the server whatsoever. We can also save you time and effort with the Managed Services upgrade, since it includes regular Operating System updates, so that you'll have a secure and stable Debian installation.
