Debian is a popular Linux distribution, that is used mainly on personal computers, but lots of people have begun using it lately as a web server OS too, due to the stability and protection it offers. The latter is a consequence of the fact that Debian is developed and supported by numerous qualified volunteers around the globe, therefore any patch that is needed to fix a certain issue is released within a couple of days. The same community will also help with any question or issue which a user may ever have, due to the fact that they can be contacted through e-mail using mailing lists and a competent response will be sent in no more than 15-20 minutes. The advantage here is that all your questions will be addressed by the same people who have made the Operating System itself and they have an in-depth knowledge of how it works. As Debian is free, you will not need to pay any kind of license fees to use it and you can personalize it as much as you want or need. This is valid for both the Operating System as well as the 30.000+ software packages which are readily available for it.
Debian in VPS Servers
You will be able to choose the Debian Operating System with each VPS server package that we offer. 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are among the options that you can find on the order page, so you can select the one that is more suitable for the software that you need 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 will have more freedom, as you will have full root access and you are able to use the advantages and the full functionality offered by Debian. In the second case, the root access will be limited, however you can control your online content through a web interface, not a console. In case you do not have much time to maintain your Debian-powered server, or in case you don't have a lot of experience, you can add the Managed Services upgrade to your plan and our admins will take care of the weekly OS updates.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You can pick the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server with only a single click on our order page and according to your choice, we'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS on the machine, so that the software that you will install later will work in the optimal way. Using a server with no Control Panel, you'll receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you're able to control everything through a console. A server that is obtained with our Hepsia Control Panel will include all the software which you'll need for your sites. Though with the latter option the root access will be limited, you are able to manage the server as if it were a shared hosting account, therefore you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you do not have previous expertise in this kind of website hosting service. If you purchase the Managed Services upgrade, we will maintain your server and will update its OS on a weekly basis to ensure that you have the most current and most risk-free release.
