Learn why the Debian Linux distribution is so favored and the reasons why server admins choose it for their machines.
Debian is a Linux distribution, which is widely used for desktop machines, but it has been gaining popularity as a server Operating System during the last couple of years too. It is really stable and risk-free, due to the fact that fixes are released in just a couple of days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a vast support community, so if you have any kind of questions or issues with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it comes with, you are able to contact the developers right away through e-mail using special e-mail lists and receive a response in 15-20 min. The Debian community gives you the best level of support possible, since all your questions will be handled by exactly the same people who created Debian in the first place, so they have a detailed knowledge of how their system operates. Because the Operating System is absolutely free to use and distribute, no license charges will be added to your website hosting fees and you'll be able to change the code files and any other software that you install without restrictions, so as to optimize the software environment for your websites. In addition, Debian performs very well on any hardware, as it's light and efficient and doesn't require a lot of memory.
Debian in VPS Servers
When you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the VPS server
packages that we provide and choose this Operating System on the registration page. You will be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release, since we give you the option to select the more appropriate one, depending on the software which you'd like to install on your server once it's set up. When you're more tech-savvy, you may get a Debian-powered VPS without a Control Panel, and you'll have full root access and you can control the content and the software using SSH. In case you are less experienced, but you'd like to use an app which requires Debian, you will be able to select the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel on the order page and you'll be able to manage the entire server like a standard shared hosting account. You may also take full advantage of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we supply, since it features once a week Operating System updates performed by our admins, among many other useful things.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
Each dedicated server
that we provide can be installed with Debian and we will test the program environment completely before we hand over the machine so as to make sure that it will perform appropriately. You'll be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release during the signup process, so that the applications that you set up can get the maximum out of your server. We can also maintain your OS up-to-date when you add the additional Managed Services package to your plan. If you obtain your Debian-driven server without a website hosting Control Panel, you can do anything you like with the machine and you'll have full root-level access, yet you'll have to be more experienced, since all the tasks will be performed through a Secure Shell console. When you order your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will get a web interface, via which you can manage domains, files, databases, and many others, and this might be a better option in case you aren't very experienced, and a particular app that you want to use requires Debian. You'll have access to your Hepsia-equipped server through SSH as well, however the things which you can do are limited.
