Debian is a Linux release, that's preffered for desktop computers, however it has been gaining in popularity as a server OS during the last couple of years as well. It's very stable and protected, as fixes are released in a few days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a large support community, so if you have any kind of questions or issues with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it features, you're able to contact the developers straight away through email using special mailing lists and receive a reply in just 15-20 minutes. The Debian community offers the best level of support possible, because your questions will be handled by the very same people that made Debian in the first place, so they have a detailed knowledge of how their system functions. Since the Operating System is 100% free to use and distribute, no license costs will be added to your website hosting fees and you'll be able to modify the program code files and any additional software that you install with no restrictions, so as to optimize the software environment for your web sites. Furthermore, Debian performs really well on any hardware, because it is light and effective and doesn't need much memory.
Debian in VPS
You're able to select the Debian Operating System with each and every virtual private server package that we supply. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of 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 set up and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be set up either devoid of Control Panel or with our tailor-made Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you have more freedom, considering that you will have full root access and you are able to take advantage of the advantages and the full functionality supplied by Debian. In the second case, the root access is limited, however you're able to control your web content through a web interface, not a console. If you don't have much time to take care of your Debian-powered server, or if you do not have a lot of experience, you are able to add the Managed Services upgrade to your plan and our admins will take care of the regular OS updates.
Debian in Dedicated Hosting
Each and every dedicated server that we provide can be installed with Debian and we will test the program environment in detail before we hand over the machine so as to make sure that it'll perform perfectly. You'll be able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release during the signup process, so that the applications that you set up can get the maximum out of your server. We can also maintain your Operating System up-to-date if you add the optional Managed Services package to your plan. If you acquire your Debian-driven server without a hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to do anything you want with the machine and you will have full root-level access, yet you will need to be more experienced, because all the tasks will be performed through a Secure Shell console. If you get your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will receive a web interface, through which you will be able to manage domains, files, databases, and many others, and this might be a better option in case you aren't very experienced, and a particular app that you intend to use requires Debian. You'll have access to your Hepsia-equipped server through SSH too, yet the things which you'll be able to do will be limited.
