Debian is a Linux release, which is widely used for desktop machines, however it's been becoming more popular as a server OS over the last couple of years as well. It's very stable and protected, as fixes are released in just a few days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a large support community, so if you have any questions or problems with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it features, you're able to contact the developers without delay through email using special mailing lists and receive a response within 15-20 minutes. The Debian community provides the best level of support possible, because all your questions will be handled by the very same people who made Debian in the first place, so they have a thorough knowledge of how their system operates. As the Operating System is absolutely free to use and distribute, no license charges will be included with your web hosting fees and you will be able to modify the program code files and any additional software which you install without any restrictions, so as to optimize the software environment for your web sites. In addition, Debian performs very well on any kind of hardware, because it is light and efficient and doesn't require a lot of memory.

Debian in VPS Servers

If you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the VPS server packages that we provide and choose this Operating System on the registration 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 which you would like to install on your server once it is set up. If you're more tech-savvy, you can get a Debian-powered VPS without a Control Panel, so that you'll have full root access and you're able to control the content and the software using SSH. In case you are less experienced, but you'd like to use software which requires Debian, you will be able to select the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel on the order page and you can manage the whole server like a standard shared web hosting account. You can also take advantage of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we supply, because it features once a week Operating System updates performed by our admins, among many other useful things.

Debian in Dedicated Servers

You're able to pick the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with a click on our order page and depending on your choice, we will set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS on the machine, to ensure that the software that you will install later will perform in the right way. Picking a server without Control Panel, you'll receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you will be able to control everything using a console. A server that's acquired with the Hepsia Control Panel will include all the software that you'll need for your Internet sites. Though with the latter option the root access will be restricted, you'll be able to control the server as if it were a shared website hosting account, so that you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you have no previous expertise in this type of website hosting service. When you order the Managed Services upgrade, we will maintain your server and will update its OS weekly to ensure that you have the most recent and most risk-free version.
