Debian is a Linux distribution, that's widespread for desktop machines, but it's been becoming more popular as a server Operating System during the last few years too. It is very stable and risk-free, due to the fact that fixes are released in a few days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a huge support community, so if you have any questions or troubles with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it includes, you can contact the developers right away through e-mail using special e-mail lists and receive a response in 15-20 min. The Debian community gives you the top level of support possible, because your questions will be handled by the very same people that made Debian in the first place, so they have an in-depth knowledge of how their own system functions. Because the Operating System is free to use and distribute, no license costs will be added to your website hosting fees and you will be able to change the program code files and any additional software which you install without any restrictions, so as to optimize the software environment for your websites. In addition, Debian performs really well on any kind of hardware, as it's light and quick and does not require a lot of memory.

Debian in VPS

If you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the virtual private server plans that we offer and select this Operating System on the registration page. You'll be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release, because we give you the option to choose the right one, according to the software that you'd like to install on your server once it is up and running. In case you're more tech-savvy, you can get a Debian-powered VPS with no Control Panel, and you will have full root access and you will be able to manage the content and the software via SSH. In case you are less experienced, yet you'd like to use an application that requires Debian, you will be 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 web hosting account. In addition, you can reap the benefits of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we supply, because it comes with regular Operating System updates performed by our administrators, among many other useful things.

Debian in Dedicated Hosting

You're able to select the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with a single click on our order page and based on your choice, we'll install the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS on your machine, so that the software that you will install later will work in the optimal way. With a server without Control Panel, you'll receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you will be able to manage everything using a console. A server that is obtained with the Hepsia Control Panel will include all the software that you may need for your sites. Even though with the latter option the root access is limited, you are able to manage the server as if it were a shared hosting account, thus you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you do not have previous experience with this kind of website hosting service. When you purchase our Managed Services upgrade, we will take care of your server and will update its OS on a weekly basis so as to ensure that you have the latest and most secure version.
