See why a lot of system administrators head straight for Debian whenever choosing an Operating System for their servers.
Debian is a Linux distribution, that's widespread for desktop machines, but it has been becoming more popular as a server OS over the last few years as well. It is very dependable and secure, as fixes are released in just a couple of days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a huge support community, so when you have any questions or problems with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it is equipped with, you can easily contact the developers immediately through email using special e-mail lists and receive a response within 15-20 min. The Debian community offers the best level of support possible, as your questions will be handled by the very same people that built Debian in the first place, so they have a detailed knowledge of how their own system works. Because the Operating System is absolutely free to use and distribute, no license charges will be included with your web hosting fees and you can customize the program code files and any other software that you install with no restrictions, so as to optimize the software environment for your websites. In addition, Debian performs very well on any kind of hardware, because it's light and fast and doesn't need a lot of memory.
Debian in VPS Servers
There're a few Operating Systems that we provide with our VPS web hosting plans
and Debian is one of them, therefore when you need a server with this Operating System, you'll be able to get one in under one hour. We also offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS to ensure that the VPS you'll have will fully cover the system requirements of any web or offline application which you need to install on the server. Controlling the content on the server can be done in two ways, based on the choice you make on the order page. Without a Control Panel, you will be able to do everything on your Debian-equipped server using Secure Shell, as you will have root-level access, while through the Hepsia Control Panel, the root access will have certain restrictions, but you will be able to do everything through your web browser using an intuitive web interface, even if you aren't very experienced. Using the optional Managed Services package which we supply, we can also keep your Debian OS up to date every week, saving you effort and time.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
Each dedicated server
that we provide can be set up with Debian and we'll test the software environment completely before we hand over your machine in order to make sure that it'll perform properly. You are able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release throughout the sign-up process, so that the apps which you set up will be able to get the maximum out of your server. We will also maintain 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 can do anything you like with the machine and you will have full root-level access, however you will need to be more experienced, as all of the tasks will be performed using a Secure Shell console. If you acquire your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will have a web interface, via which you'll be able to manage domains, files, databases, etc, and this might be the best option when you aren't very experienced, but a specific app that you would like to use requires Debian. You have access to your Hepsia-equipped server through SSH as well, yet the things that you will be able to do are restricted.
