Debian is a Linux release, which is widespread for desktop machines, but it has been becoming more popular as a server Operating System during the last few years too. It's very stable and secure, due to the fact that fixes are released in just a few days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a huge support community, so when you have any kind of questions or problems with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it includes, you can contact the developers right away via electronic mail using special e-mail lists and receive a reply in 15-20 minutes. The Debian community gives you the top level of support possible, since all your questions will be handled by the same people who made Debian in the first place, so they have a thorough knowledge of how their system functions. Since 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 modify the code files and any other software which you install without restrictions, so as to optimize the software environment for your sites. What's more, Debian performs very well on any hardware, as it is light and fast and doesn't require a lot of memory.

Debian in VPS Servers

If you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the VPS server plans that we supply and choose this Operating System on the order page. You'll be able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release, as we give you the option to pick the right one, based on the software that you would like to install on your server once it's up and running. When you're more tech-savvy, you may get a Debian-powered VPS with no Control Panel, so you'll have full root access and you are able to control the content and the software via SSH. In case you are less experienced, yet you'd like to use an application that requires Debian, you will be able to select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page and you will be able to manage the whole server like a standard shared web hosting account. You may also take advantage of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we provide, as it comes with regular Operating System updates done by our administrators, among many other useful things.

Debian in Dedicated Servers

You are able to select the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server with only a single click on our registration page and depending on your choice, we will install the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS on the machine, to ensure that the software that you will install later will perform in the right way. Using a server with no Control Panel, you'll receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you are able to manage everything using a console. A server that is acquired with the Hepsia Control Panel will come with all the software that you may need for your web sites. Even though with the latter option the root access will be restricted, you can control the server as if it were a shared web hosting account, thus you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you don't have previous experience with this kind of hosting service. When you get the Managed Services upgrade, we will maintain your server and will update its OS weekly so as to ensure that you have the most current and most risk-free version.
