Debian is a Linux release, which is widespread for desktop computers, however it has been gaining popularity as a server OS over the last couple of years as well. It is really stable and secure, due to the fact that fixes are released within a few days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a large support community, so if you have any questions or troubles with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it comes with, you're able to contact the developers immediately through e-mail using special e-mail lists and receive a reply within 15-20 minutes. The Debian community gives you the top level of support possible, since all of your questions will be handled by the very same people that made Debian in the first place, so they have an exhaustive knowledge of how their own system operates. Since the Operating System is free to use and distribute, no license costs will be included with your web hosting fees and you'll be able to change the program code files and any additional software that you install without restrictions, in order to optimize the software environment for your web sites. Furthermore, Debian performs very well on any hardware, as it is light and effective and doesn't require a lot of memory.
Debian in VPS
When you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the virtual private server plans that we supply and select this Operating System on the registration page. You'll be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version, as we give you the option to choose the right one, depending on the software which you would like to install on your server once it is up and running. In case you are more tech-savvy, you can get a Debian-powered VPS without a Control Panel, so you'll have full root access and you'll be able to manage the content and the software using SSH. In case you are less experienced, yet you would like to use software that requires Debian, you will be able to select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page and you'll be able to manage the entire server like a standard shared hosting account. In addition, you can take advantage of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we provide, since it features weekly Operating System updates done by our administrators, among many other useful things.
