Debian is a Linux release, which is preffered for desktop machines, however it has been becoming more popular as a server OS over the last couple of years too. It is very stable and safe, since fixes are released within a couple of days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a huge support community, so if you have any kind of questions or problems with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it features, you can easily contact the developers without delay via email using special mailing lists and receive a reply within 15-20 min. The Debian community offers the best level of support possible, as your questions will be handled by the same people that created Debian in the first place, so they have a detailed knowledge of how their own system operates. Since the Operating System is absolutely free to use and distribute, no license costs will be added to your web hosting fees and you will be able to modify the program code files and any other software which you install without any restrictions, in order to optimize the software environment for your web sites. In addition, Debian performs very well on any kind of hardware, as it is light and fast and does not need much memory.

Debian in VPS

You can choose the Debian Operating System with each and every virtual private server package that we supply. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of the options that you'll find on the order page, which means that you can select the one that will be more suitable for the software that you need to install and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be installed either devoid of Control Panel or with our custom Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you'll have more freedom, considering that you will have full root access and you will be able to use the advantages and the full functionality offered by Debian. In the second case, the root access will be restricted, but you're able to control your web content through a web interface, not a console. If you do not have much time to manage your Debian-powered server, or in case you do not have a lot of experience, you could add the Managed Services upgrade to your plan and our admins will take care of the weekly OS updates.
