Debian is a popular Linux distribution, that is used primarily on PC's, still many people have begun using it lately as a web server Operating System as well, due to the stability and security it offers. The latter is a result of the fact that Debian is developed and supported by thousands of qualified volunteers all around the world, therefore any patch that is needed to fix a particular issue is released in a couple of days. The very same community will also help you with any question or trouble that a user may ever have, due to the fact that they can be contacted through electronic mail using e-mail lists and a qualified response will be sent in around 15-20 min. The advantage here is that your queries will be responded to by the same people who have developed the Operating System itself and they have a detailed knowledge of how it functions. As Debian is absolutely free, you won't have 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 that are available for it.
Debian in VPS Servers
You will be able to select the Debian Operating System with each and every VPS server package that we offer. 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are among the options that you'll find on the order page, so you can select 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'll have more freedom, because you will have full root access and you are able to use the advantages and the full functionality supplied by Debian. In the second case, the root access is restricted, yet you'll be able to manage your world wide web content through a web interface, not a console. If you don't have much time to manage your Debian-powered server, or if you do not have a lot of experience, you could add the Managed Services upgrade to your package and our administrators will handle the weekly OS updates.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You can select the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server with only a click on our registration page and according to your choice, we'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS on the machine, so that the software that you'll install later will perform in the optimal way. Selecting a server devoid of Control Panel, you'll get Debian and the Apache web server software and you'll be able to control everything using a console. A server that's acquired with our Hepsia Control Panel will feature all of the software that you will need for your web sites. Although with the latter option the root access will be restricted, you will be able to manage the server as if it were a shared website hosting account, so you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you don't have previous expertise in this type of web hosting service. When you get our Managed Services upgrade, we'll maintain your server and will update its OS every week so as to make sure that you have the most recent and most safe release.
