Debian is a Linux distribution, that’s preffered for desktop computers, but it’s been gaining popularity as a server OS over the last couple of years as well. It is really stable and safe, due to the fact that fixes are released in just a couple of days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a large support community, so when you have any kind of questions or troubles with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it is equipped with, you can easily contact the developers without delay via electronic mail using special e-mail lists and receive a reply within 15-20 minutes. The Debian community offers the top level of support possible, since all of 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 system operates. Since the Operating System is free to use and distribute, no license costs will be added to your website hosting fees and you’ll be able to change the code files and any other software which you install with no restrictions, so as to optimize the software environment for your Internet sites. What’s more, Debian performs very well on any kind of hardware, because it’s light and efficient and does not need much memory.
Debian in VPS Hosting
When you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the virtual private server packages that we provide and choose this Operating System on the registration page. You’ll be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release, since we give you the option to select the right one, based on the software which you would like to install on your server once it is up and running. If you’re more tech-savvy, you may get a Debian-powered VPS without a Control Panel, so that you will have full root access and you can manage the content and the software through SSH. In case you are less experienced, yet you’d like to use an application that requires Debian, you’re able to pick our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel on the order page and you can manage the entire server like a standard shared web hosting account. You can also take full advantage of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we provide, since it features regular Operating System updates done by our administrators, among various other useful things.
