Debian is an OS which uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually installed on personal computers, it's being used on more and more web servers as well. The reason is that it's very stable, so a server running it will not have to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be among the most secure Operating Systems you can get, due to the fact that security patches are released within days after a problem is discovered. This is possible because thousands of well-trained developers are employed by the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, but they also provide 24/7 support by using special e-mail lists and respond in 20 min to any question. Thus, you will have top-level support directly from the developers who know their own platform in detail, and not from a third-party support team. Debian is also among 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 as well as all the packages in the way you see fit. In addition, you won't have to pay any kind of license fees.
Debian in VPS Servers
There are several Operating Systems that we offer with our VPS servers and Debian is one of them, therefore if you need a server with this Operating System, you will be able to have one in less than an hour. We also offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS to ensure that the VPS you'll obtain will fully cover the system requirements of any kind of web or offline app which you wish to install on the server. Controlling the content on the server can be done in two ways, based on the choice you make on the order page. Without a Control Panel, you are able to do everything on your Debian-equipped server through Secure Shell, as you will have root-level access, while using the Hepsia Control Panel, the root access will have some limitations, but you can do everything from your web browser using a user-friendly web interface, even when you are not very experienced. Using the optional Managed Services package that we supply, we will also maintain your Debian OS updated on a weekly basis, saving you time and effort.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
32-bit and 64-bit releases of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you'll be able to choose any of them with just a single click for your brand new server, based on what software environment the apps that you want to use require for the best performance. You can also choose if our Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on the server or if it should come with no Control Panel at all. The first option is made for inexperienced users who want a Debian-powered server, yet would like to control it like a shared web hosting account, while the second option is suitable for more experienced users who need to have more control, due to the fact that ‘no Control Panel' means only Debian and the Apache web server software, but no other software set up on the server at all. We can also save your time and effort with the Managed Services upgrade, as it features routine Operating System updates, so that you will have a safe and stable Debian installation.
