Debian is a widespread Linux release, that is used mainly on PC's, still a lot of people have begun using it lately as a web server OS too, due to the stability and security it provides. The latter is a direct result the fact that Debian is developed and supported by a large number of qualified volunteers all around the world, so any patch which is needed to fix a certain issue is released in a matter of days. The same community can also help you with any question or problem that a user may ever experience, since they can be contacted through e-mail using e-mail lists and a qualified response will be sent in around 15-20 minutes. The advantage here is that all of your queries will be addressed by the same people who have created the Operating System itself and they have an in-depth knowledge of how it functions. As Debian is provided for free, you won't need to pay any license fees to use it and you'll be able to customize it as much as you want or need. This is valid for the Operating System and the 30.000+ software packages which are readily available for it.
Debian in VPS Servers
You will be able to pick the Debian Operating System with each VPS server plan that we supply. 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are among the options that you'll find on the order page, which means that you can pick the one that is more suitable for the software that you would like to install and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be installed either devoid of Control Panel or with our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you will have more freedom, as you will have full root access and you're able to take advantage of the advantages and the full functionality supplied by Debian. In the second case, the root access will be limited, but you'll be able to manage your website content via a web interface, not a console. If you don't have much time to manage your Debian-powered server, or in case you do not have much experience, you are able to add the Managed Services upgrade to your plan and our admins will take care of the weekly OS updates.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You're able to pick the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server with a click on our order page and depending on your choice, we'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS on your machine, so that the software that you will install later will perform in the optimal way. Picking a server without Control Panel, you will get Debian and the Apache web server software and you're able to control everything using a console. A server that is acquired with the Hepsia Control Panel will come with all the software which you'll need for your websites. Even though with the latter option the root access will be restricted, you'll be 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 don't have previous experience with this kind of website hosting service. If you purchase our Managed Services upgrade, we will take care of your server and will update its OS on a weekly basis in order to ensure that you have the most recent and most safe edition.
