Debian is a Linux distribution, which is preffered for desktop machines, but it's been gaining popularity as a server OS during the last couple of years too. It is really stable and safe, since fixes are released in a couple of days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a vast support community, so when you have any kind of questions or problems with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it comes with, you can contact the developers directly through electronic mail using special e-mail lists and receive a reply within 15-20 min. The Debian community supplies the best level of support possible, as all your questions will be handled by the very same people who created Debian in the first place, so they have a thorough knowledge of how their own system functions. Because the Operating System is absolutely free to use and distribute, no license costs will be added to your web hosting fees and you'll be able to change the program code files and any other software which you install without any restrictions, in order to optimize the software environment for your sites. What's more, Debian performs very well on any hardware, as it's light and fast and does not require a lot of memory.

Debian in VPS Servers

You are able to obtain a Debian-powered VPS server with any of our VPS plans and you will be able to choose if the version that will be installed during the server setup process will be 32-bit or 64-bit. This way, you'll make sure that the software environment will meet the system requirements of the apps that you need to run and that the latter will work effectively. Throughout the order process, you can also choose if the VPS will come with the Hepsia Control Panel or without a Control Panel at all. The first option provides you with an easy-to-work-with graphical interface, through that you are able to control everything related to your online presence using only an Internet browser - files, e-mail addresses, databases, etcetera. Without a Control Panel at hand, you will need to do everything through a console, however you will have full root access and you will be able to set up any kind of software that may not be compatible with Hepsia. You can also add the optional Managed Services package, that includes regular Operating System updates.

Debian in Dedicated Servers

Each and every dedicated server that we supply can be set up with Debian and we'll test the program environment carefully before we hand over the machine to make sure that it will perform properly. You can choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version during the registration process, so the apps which you install can get the maximum out of your server. We can also keep your Operating System up-to-date if you add the optional Managed Services package to your plan. When you get your Debian-driven server without a web hosting Control Panel, you can do anything you like with your machine and you'll have full root-level access, but you will have to be more skillful, since all the tasks will be performed using a Secure Shell console. When you get your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will get a web interface, through which you'll be able to manage domains, files, databases, etc, and this might be the best option when you are not very experienced, but a particular application which you would like to use requires Debian. You can access your Hepsia-equipped server through SSH too, however the things which you'll be able to do will be restricted.
