Discover why a lot of system administrators head straight for Debian when selecting a new Operating System for their servers.
Debian is a Linux distribution, that's widely used for desktop machines, however it has been gaining in popularity as a server OS over the last few years as well. It's really stable and safe, due to the fact that fixes are released within a few days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a huge support community, so when you have any kind of questions or issues with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it features, you'll be able to contact the developers immediately through e-mail using special mailing lists and receive a response in 15-20 minutes. The Debian community offers the top level of support possible, as all your questions will be handled by exactly the same people that created Debian in the first place, so they have an exhaustive knowledge of how their own system works. As 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 modify the program code files and any other software which you install without restrictions, so as to optimize the software environment for your Internet sites. What's more, Debian performs really well on any kind of hardware, as it is light and effective and doesn't require much memory.
Debian in VPS Hosting
There are a few Operating Systems that we offer with our Linux VPS hosting
and Debian is one of them, which means that when you need a server with this Operating System, you will be able to obtain one in under one hour. In addition, we offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS to ensure that the VPS you will obtain will fully cover the system requirements of any web or offline app which you want to install on the server. Controlling the content on the server can be performed in two ways, based on the choice you make on the order page. Without a Control Panel, you are able to do everything on your Debian-equipped server through Secure Shell, as you will have root-level access, whereas through the Hepsia Control Panel, the root access will have certain restrictions, but you'll be able to do everything from your browser using a user-friendly web interface, even if you aren't very experienced. Using the optional Managed Services package that we offer, we'll also keep your Debian OS up to date weekly, saving you effort and time.
Debian in Dedicated Web Hosting
Each and every dedicated server
that we provide can be set up with Debian and we'll test the software environment in depth before we hand over your machine in order to make sure that it will perform appropriately. You'll be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release throughout the sign-up process, so the apps that you set up will be able to get the maximum out of your server. We will also keep your OS up-to-date if you add the optional Managed Services package to your plan. If you get your Debian-driven server without a hosting Control Panel, you can do anything you want with your machine and you'll have full root-level access, yet you'll have to be more skillful, since all the tasks will be performed through a Secure Shell console. When you get your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will get a web interface, through which you'll be able to manage domains, files, databases, and many others, and this might be a better option when you aren't very experienced, and a specific app that you would like to use requires Debian. You'll have access to your Hepsia-equipped server via SSH too, yet the things that you'll be able to do are limited.
