Debian is a Linux distribution, which is widely used for desktop machines, but it's been becoming more popular as a server Operating System during the last few years too. It is really stable and secure, as fixes are released in a couple of days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a large support community, so when you have any questions or problems with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it features, you're able to contact the developers immediately via electronic mail using special e-mail lists and receive a response in just 15-20 minutes. The Debian community offers the best level of support possible, as all 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. Since the Operating System is absolutely free to use and distribute, no license costs will be added to your web hosting fees and you will be able to modify the program code files and any additional software which you install with no restrictions, to optimize the software environment for your Internet sites. In addition, Debian performs very well on any kind of hardware, as it's light and efficient and doesn't require a lot of memory.
Debian in VPS
You are able to select the Debian Operating System with each and every virtual private server
solution that we supply. 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options that you'll find on the order page, which means that you can select the one that will be more suitable for the software that you would like to set up and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be installed either with no Control Panel or with our tailor-made Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you will have more freedom, due to the fact that you will have full root access and you can use the advantages and the full functionality offered by Debian. In the second case, the root access is restricted, yet you are able to control your online content via a web interface, not a console. In case you do not have a lot of time to command your Debian-powered server, or if you don't have much experience, you are able to add the Managed Services upgrade to your plan and our administrators will take care of the regular OS updates.
Debian in Dedicated Hosting
Each dedicated server
that we provide can be installed with Debian and we'll test the program environment thoroughly before we hand over your server so as to ensure that it'll perform appropriately. You're able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version throughout the signup process, so the apps which you install will be able to get the maximum out of your server. We can also maintain your OS up-to-date if you add the optional Managed Services package to your plan. If you obtain your Debian-driven server without a web hosting Control Panel, you'll 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, since all of the tasks will be performed through a Secure Shell console. When you get your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll get a web interface, through which you will be able to manage domains, files, databases, and many others, and this might be a better option when you are not very experienced, and a particular application that you wish to use requires Debian. You have access to your Hepsia-equipped server via SSH as well, yet the things which you're able to do are restricted.
