Debian is a Linux distribution, that is preffered for desktop computers, yet it's been gaining popularity as a server OS during the last couple of years too. It's very stable and risk-free, since fixes are released within a few days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a vast 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're able to contact the developers straight away via email using special mailing lists and receive a reply within 15-20 minutes. The Debian community provides the best level of support possible, since your questions will be handled by the very same people who built Debian in the first place, so they have an exhaustive knowledge of how their system operates. Because 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 program code files and any other software that you install without any restrictions, in order to optimize the software environment for your websites. What's more, Debian performs really well on any kind of hardware, as it's light and effective 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 packages that we supply and pick this Operating System on the registration page. You can select the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release, because we give you the option to select the more appropriate one, based on the software that you wish to install on your server once it is set up. When you're more tech-savvy, you can get a Debian-powered VPS without a Control Panel, and you will have full root access and you will be able to manage the content and the software through SSH. If you are less experienced, but you would like to use an application which requires Debian, you will be able to pick the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel on the order page and you will be able to manage the whole server like a standard shared web hosting account. You can also take full advantage of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we provide, since it features weekly Operating System updates done by our admins, among various other useful things.

Debian in Dedicated Servers

32-bit and 64-bit releases of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you are able to choose all of them with just a single click for your brand new server, based on what software environment the apps that you would like to use require for the best performance. You may also choose if our Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on the server or if it should come with no Control Panel at all. The first option is made for inexperienced users who want a Debian-powered server, but wish to manage it like a shared hosting account, while the second option is good for more advanced users who need to have more control, due to the fact that ‘no Control Panel' stands for only Debian and the Apache web server software, but no other software set up on the server whatsoever. We'll also save your time and effort with the Managed Services upgrade, because it features routine Operating System updates, so that you will have a safe and stable Debian installation.
