Debian is an Operating System that uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually installed on personal computers, it is being used on more and more web servers as well. The reason is that it's very stable, so a server running it won't have to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being one of the most protected Operating Systems out there, because security patches are released within days after a problem is discovered. This is possible because thousands of skilled developers are working for the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, in addition, they provide 24/7 support by using special e-mail lists and respond in 20 minutes to any kind of question. In this light, you will have top-notch support directly from the developers who know their own platform in depth, and not from a third-party support team. Debian is also one of the Linux releases with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. Since the Operating System costs nothing to use, you are able to modify both the core and any of the packages in the way you see fit. In addition, you will not be required to pay any license fees.
Debian in VPS Servers
There're several Operating Systems that we offer with our Linux VPS web hosting plans
and Debian is one of them, therefore if you'd like to have a server with this Operating System, you will be able to have one in under 1 hour. In addition, we offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS to make sure that the VPS you will get will fully cover the system requirements of any kind of web or offline app that you wish to install on the server. Managing 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 will be able to do everything on your Debian-equipped server through Secure Shell, as you'll have root-level access, whereas using the Hepsia Control Panel, the root access will have some limitations, but you can do everything through your Internet browser using a handy web interface, even if you are not very experienced. When you use the optional Managed Services package which we supply, we'll also maintain your Debian OS up to date every week, saving you time and effort.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
32-bit and 64-bit versions of Debian are available on our dedicated server
order page and you can pick all of them with only a click for your brand new machine, based on what software environment the apps that you plan to use require for optimal performance. You can also choose if our Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on the server or whether it should come with no Control Panel at all. The first option is suitable for inexperienced users who want a Debian-powered server, yet wish to manage it like a shared website hosting account, whereas the second option is suitable for more experienced users who want to have more control, due to the fact that ‘no Control Panel' stands for only Debian and the Apache web server software, but no other software installed on the server whatsoever. We can also save you time and effort with our Managed Services upgrade, since it comes with routine Operating System updates, so that you'll have a safe and stable Debian installation.
