See why lots of system administrators head straight for Debian whenever selecting an Operating System for their servers.
Debian is a Linux distribution, that is widely used for desktop computers, however it's been becoming more popular as a server OS over the last few years too. It's really stable and secure, because fixes are released in just a few days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a vast support community, so when you have any kind of questions or problems with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it includes, you can easily contact the developers straight away through electronic mail using special mailing lists and receive a response in just 15-20 min. The Debian community gives you the top level of support possible, because all your questions will be handled by exactly the same people that built Debian in the first place, so they have a thorough knowledge of how their own system works. Since the Operating System is 100% free to use and distribute, no license charges will be added to your hosting fees and you'll be able to customize the code files and any other software that you install without restrictions, in order to optimize the software environment for your sites. In addition, Debian performs very well on any kind of hardware, because it's light and efficient and does not need a lot of memory.
Debian in VPS Hosting
There're several Operating Systems that we offer with our Linux VPS hosting packages
and Debian is among them, which means that if you need a server with this Operating System, you will be able to have one in under 1 hour. In addition, we offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS to make sure that the VPS you'll receive will completely cover the system requirements of any web or offline application that you would like to install on the server. Managing the content on the server can be done in two ways, depending on the choice you make on the order page. With no Control Panel, you can do everything on your Debian-equipped server through Secure Shell, as you'll have root-level access, whereas through the Hepsia Control Panel, the root access will have certain limitations, but you can do everything from your Internet browser using a handy web interface, even when you aren't very experienced. Using the optional Managed Services package that we offer, we can also keep your Debian OS up to date on a weekly basis, saving you effort and time.
Debian in Dedicated Web Hosting
Each dedicated server
that we supply can be set up with Debian and we will test the software environment completely before we hand over the machine to ensure that it will perform flawlessly. You'll be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version throughout the sign-up process, so that the applications which you install can get the maximum out of your server. We will also keep your OS up-to-date when you add the additional Managed Services package to your plan. When you order your Debian-driven server without a website hosting Control Panel, you will be able to do anything you want with your machine and you will have full root-level access, yet you'll need to be more skillful, because all of the tasks will be performed using a Secure Shell console. When you acquire your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will receive a web interface, via which you will be able to control domains, files, databases, etc, and this might be the best option when you aren't very experienced, but a certain application which you would like to use requires Debian. You will have access to your Hepsia-equipped server via SSH as well, but the things which you can do will be restricted.
