To what does the Debian OS owe its reputation? What has made it the Linux distribution of choice for a lot of server administrators?
Debian is a Linux release, that is widespread for desktop computers, yet it has been gaining in popularity as a server Operating System over the last couple of years as well. It's really dependable and safe, since fixes are released within a couple of days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a huge support community, so when you have any questions or troubles with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it features, you can contact the developers straight away via electronic mail using special mailing lists and receive a response in 15-20 minutes. The Debian community supplies the best level of support possible, since your questions will be handled by exactly the same people who created Debian in the first place, so they have a thorough knowledge of how their system works. Because the Operating System is absolutely free to use and distribute, no license charges will be included with your hosting fees and you'll be able to modify the code files and any other software which you install without any restrictions, so as to optimize the software environment for your sites. In addition, Debian performs very well on any hardware, because it's light and effective and doesn't need much memory.
Debian in VPS Hosting
You can select the Debian Operating System with each and every virtual private server
plan that we offer. 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options that you will find on the order page, so you can select the one that will be more suitable for the software that you'd like to set up and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be installed either with no Control Panel or with our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you will have more freedom, because you will have full root access and you can use the advantages and the full functionality supplied by Debian. In the second case, the root access is restricted, but you're able to control your website content through a web interface, not a console. In case you don't have a lot of time to command your Debian-powered server, or in case you don't have a lot of experience, you could add the Managed Services upgrade to your plan and our admins will handle the weekly OS updates.
Debian in Dedicated Web Hosting
32-bit and 64-bit editions of Debian are available on our dedicated server
order page and you can select any of them with only a single click for your brand new machine, based on what software environment the apps which you plan to use require for optimal performance. You can also select whether our Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on the server or whether it should come without a Control Panel at all. The first option is suitable for less experienced users who want a Debian-powered server, yet would like to manage it like a shared hosting account, whereas the second option is good for more advanced users who wish to have more control, because ‘no Control Panel' stands for only Debian and the Apache web server software, but no other software installed on the server at all. We'll also save you time and effort with the Managed Services upgrade, since it comes with routine Operating System updates, so that you'll have a secure and stable Debian installation.
