Debian is a preferred Linux release, which is used primarily on desktop computers, however numerous people have started using it lately as a web server Operating System as well, due to the stability and protection it provides. The latter is a consequence of the fact that Debian is developed and supported by numerous qualified volunteers internationally, so that any patch which is required to fix a particular issue is released within a few days. The very same community can also help you with any question or trouble that a user may ever have, since they can be contacted via electronic mail using e-mail lists and a competent response will be sent in around 15-20 min. The advantage here is that your questions will be answered by the same people who have made the Operating System itself and they have an in-depth knowledge of how it functions. As Debian is absolutely free, you won't need to pay any license fees to use it and you can customize 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 readily available for it.
Debian in VPS Servers
You will be able to pick the Debian Operating System with each and every VPS server package that we offer. 32-bit and 64-bit versions 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 need to install and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be installed either devoid of Control Panel or with our custom-built 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'll be able to make use of the advantages and the full functionality provided by Debian. In the second case, the root access is limited, yet you can manage your web content via a web interface, not a console. In case you do not have a lot of time to control your Debian-powered server, or if you do not have much experience, you can add the Managed Services upgrade to your package and our admins will take care of the regular OS updates.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You will be able to select the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with only a mouse click on our order page and based on your choice, we'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS on your machine, so that the software that you'll install later will work in the best possible way. Picking a server with no Control Panel, you'll receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you'll be able to manage everything using a console. A server that's acquired with our Hepsia Control Panel will come with all the software which you will need for your Internet sites. Even though with the latter option the root access is limited, you'll be able to manage the server as if it were a shared website hosting account, which means that you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you don't have previous expertise in this type of website hosting service. If you get our Managed Services upgrade, we'll maintain your server and will update its OS on a weekly basis to make sure that you have the most current and most secure edition.
