Debian is a Linux release, that's widely used for desktop machines, however it has been gaining popularity as a server Operating System over the last couple of years as well. It is very dependable and risk-free, because fixes are released in a few days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a large support community, so when you have any questions or issues with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it includes, you are able to contact the developers directly through email using special mailing lists and receive a response in 15-20 minutes. The Debian community provides the best level of support possible, because all 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 100% free to use and distribute, no license charges will be added to your website hosting fees and you can change the code files and any other software which you install without restrictions, to optimize the software environment for your sites. Furthermore, Debian performs very well on any hardware, as it is light and fast and does not need a lot of memory.
Debian in VPS Hosting
You will be able to pick the Debian Operating System with each virtual private server solution that we supply. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are among the options that you will find on the order page, which means that you can pick the one that is more suitable for the software that you'd like to install and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be installed either with no Control Panel or with our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you'll have more freedom, as you will have full root access and you're able to use the advantages and the full functionality supplied by Debian. In the second case, the root access will be restricted, however you will be able to control your website content via a web interface, not a console. In case you do not have much time to command your Debian-powered server, or in case you don't have a lot of experience, you are able to add the Managed Services upgrade to your plan and our admins will handle the regular OS updates.
Debian in Dedicated Web Hosting
Each dedicated server that we supply can be installed with Debian and we'll test the software environment completely before we hand over your machine to ensure that it will perform properly. You'll be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release throughout the registration process, so that the applications which you set up can get the maximum out of your server. We can also maintain your Operating System up-to-date when you add the optional Managed Services package to your plan. When you obtain your Debian-driven server without a website hosting Control Panel, you can do anything you want with your machine and you will have full root-level access, however you'll need to be more skillful, as all the tasks will be performed through a Secure Shell console. When you get your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you'll have a web interface, through which you'll be able to manage domains, files, databases, etcetera, and this might be the best option when you are not very experienced, but a specific application that you wish to use requires Debian. You will have access to your Hepsia-equipped server through SSH as well, however the things which you can do will be limited.
