Debian is a Linux distribution, which is widespread for desktop machines, however it has been becoming more popular as a server Operating System over the last few years as well. It is really dependable and risk-free, due to the fact that fixes are released in just a few days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a large support community, so when you have any questions or problems with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it features, you will be able to contact the developers immediately via electronic mail using special mailing lists and receive a response in just 15-20 minutes. The Debian community provides the best level of support possible, since all of your questions will be handled by exactly the same people who made Debian in the first place, so they have an in-depth knowledge of how their own system operates. Since the Operating System is 100% free to use and distribute, no license costs will be added to your web hosting fees and you can change the code files and any other software that you install with no restrictions, to optimize the software environment for your Internet sites. What's more, Debian performs really well on any hardware, as it's light and fast and doesn't require much memory.
Debian in VPS Hosting
You will be able to select the Debian Operating System with each and every virtual private server solution that we provide. 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are among 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 would like to set up and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be installed either devoid of Control Panel or with our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you will have more freedom, as you will have full root access and you will be able to take advantage of the advantages and the full functionality supplied by Debian. In the second case, the root access is limited, yet you are able to control your website content through a web interface, not a console. If you don't have a lot of time to take care of your Debian-powered server, or in case you don't have much experience, you can add the Managed Services upgrade to your plan and our admins will take care of the weekly OS updates.
Debian in Dedicated Web Hosting
You'll be able to choose the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with only a click on our order page and depending on your choice, we'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS on your machine, to ensure that the software that you'll install later will work in the optimal way.

Although with the latter option the root access is restricted, you can manage the server as if it were a shared hosting account, so that you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you have no previous expertise in this kind of website hosting service. If you get our Managed Services upgrade, we will take care of your server and will update its OS weekly to make sure that you have the most current and most secure version.
