Debian is a Linux distribution, that is preffered for desktop computers, yet it's been becoming more popular as a server OS during the last couple of years too. It is really stable and secure, as fixes are released within 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 features, you'll be able to contact the developers straight away through e-mail using special e-mail lists and receive a response in 15-20 minutes. The Debian community gives you the best level of support possible, as all of your questions will be handled by exactly the same people who made Debian in the first place, so they have a detailed knowledge of how their system functions. Since the Operating System is free to use and distribute, no license costs will be added to your hosting fees and you will be able to modify the code files and any additional software that you install with no restrictions, to optimize the software environment for your Internet sites. Furthermore, Debian performs very well on any kind of hardware, because it's light and quick and does not need much memory.

Debian in VPS Servers

If you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the VPS server plans that we provide and select this Operating System on the order page. You will be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release, as we give you the option to pick the more appropriate one, according to the software that you wish to install on your server once it is set up. If you are more tech-savvy, you may get a Debian-powered VPS without a Control Panel, so that you will have full root access and you are able to control the content and the software using SSH. If you are less experienced, but you'd like to use an app which requires Debian, you're able to choose our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel on the order page and you'll be able to manage the whole server like a standard shared hosting account. You may also reap the benefits of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we provide, because it includes weekly Operating System updates done by our admins, among other useful things.

Debian in Dedicated Servers

You're able to choose the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with just a single click on our order page and depending on your choice, we will install the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS on your machine, to ensure that the software that you will install later will perform in the optimal way. Using a server without Control Panel, you'll get Debian and the Apache web server software and you will be able to manage everything through a console. A server which is obtained with the Hepsia Control Panel will include all of the software which you'll need for your websites. Even though with the latter option the root access is restricted, you can manage the server as if it were a shared hosting account, so that you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you do not have previous experience with this kind of hosting service. When you order the Managed Services upgrade, we'll maintain your server and will update its OS every week in order to make sure that you have the most current and most safe release.
