To what does the Debian OS owe its reputation? What has made it the Linux distribution of choice for countless server admins?
Debian is a Linux distribution, that is widespread for desktop machines, yet it has been becoming more popular as a server OS during the last few years too. It's very dependable and risk-free, as fixes are released in just a couple of days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a huge support community, so if you have any questions or issues with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it is equipped with, you'll be able to contact the developers directly via e-mail using special mailing lists and receive a reply in 15-20 minutes. The Debian community gives you the best level of support possible, since your questions will be handled by the same people who made Debian in the first place, so they have an in-depth knowledge of how their own system functions. As 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 change the program code files and any other software which you install without any restrictions, so as to optimize the software environment for your Internet sites. What's more, Debian performs very well on any kind of hardware, as it's light and quick and doesn't require much memory.
Debian in VPS Servers
If you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the VPS server
solutions that we supply and choose this Operating System on the order page. You'll be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version, because we give you the option to select the more appropriate one, according to the software which you wish to install on your server once it's set up. When you're more tech-savvy, you can get a Debian-powered VPS with no Control Panel, so that you'll have full root access and you'll be able to control the content and the software through SSH. In case you are less experienced, but you would like to use an application which requires Debian, you are able to select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page and you'll be able to manage the whole server like a standard shared hosting account. You can also take full advantage of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we supply, as it comes with regular Operating System updates performed by our admins, among other useful things.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
Each dedicated server
that we supply can be set up with Debian and we will test the program environment in depth before we hand over your server so as to ensure that it'll perform properly. You are able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version during the registration process, so the apps that you set up can get the maximum out of your server. We will also keep your Operating System up-to-date if you add the additional Managed Services package to your plan. If you acquire your Debian-driven server without a website hosting Control Panel, you can do anything you want with the machine and you'll have full root-level access, yet you'll have to be more experienced, as all the tasks will be performed using a Secure Shell console. If you order your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will get a web interface, via which you'll be able to control domains, files, databases, etcetera, and this might be the best option when you aren't very experienced, and a certain application which you need to use requires Debian. You can access your Hepsia-equipped server via SSH as well, however the things that you can do will be restricted.
