Read why the Debian Linux distribution is so extremely famous and why many server admins select it for their machines.
Debian is a Linux distribution, that's widespread for desktop computers, yet it's been gaining in popularity as a server Operating System during the last few years as well. It is very stable and protected, because fixes are released in a few days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a vast support community, so when you have any questions or troubles with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it is equipped with, you can easily contact the developers directly through e-mail using special mailing lists and receive a reply in just 15-20 minutes. The Debian community gives you the top level of support possible, as all your questions will be handled by the same people that built Debian in the first place, so they have a thorough knowledge of how their system operates. As the Operating System is free to use and distribute, no license charges will be included with your web hosting fees and you will be able to customize the program code files and any additional software which you install without any restrictions, in order to optimize the software environment for your Internet sites. Furthermore, Debian performs very well on any hardware, because it's light and efficient and does not require a lot of memory.
Debian in VPS Web Hosting
You're able to pick the Debian Operating System with each and every virtual private server
plan that we provide. 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options that you can find on the order page, so you can select the one that is more suitable for the software that you'd like to set up and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be set up either devoid of Control Panel or with our in-house made Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you'll have more freedom, considering that you will have full root access and you can take advantage of the advantages and the full functionality offered by Debian. In the second case, the root access is limited, yet you'll be able to control your web content through a web interface, not a console. If you do not have much time to command your Debian-powered server, or in case you do not have much experience, you can add the Managed Services upgrade to your plan and our admins will take care of the weekly OS updates.
Debian in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Each dedicated server
that we supply can be set up with Debian and we will test the software environment in detail before we hand over your machine so as to ensure that it'll perform flawlessly. You can pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release during the sign-up process, so the apps that you install will be able to get the maximum out of your server. We will also keep your Operating System up-to-date when you add the additional Managed Services package to your plan. In case you order your Debian-driven server without a website hosting Control Panel, you will be able to do anything you like with the machine and you will have full root-level access, yet you will need to be more experienced, since all of the tasks will be performed using a Secure Shell console. When you obtain your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will have a web interface, through which you can control domains, files, databases, etcetera, and this might be the best option when you are not very experienced, but a particular application which you'd like to use requires Debian. You will have access to your Hepsia-equipped server through SSH too, however the things that you can do will be limited.
