Debian is an OS that uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually set up on desktop computers, it is being used on a growing number of web servers too. The reason is that it's really stable, so a server running it will not need to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being one of the most safe Operating Systems you can get, because security patches are released within days after an issue is discovered. This is possible since 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, they also provide 24/7 support via special e-mail lists and respond within 20 minutes to any question. Thus, you'll receive top-level support directly from the developers who know their own platform in depth, and not from a third-party support team. Debian is also among the Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. Since the Operating System is free to use, you're able to modify both the core as well as all of the packages in any way you see fit. In addition, you won't have to pay any license fees.
Debian in VPS Servers
If you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the VPS server packages that we supply and pick this Operating System on the order page. You will be able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release, because we give you the option to choose the more appropriate one, according to the software which you would like to install on your server once it is up and running. If you're more tech-savvy, you may get a Debian-powered VPS with no Control Panel, so you'll have full root access and you'll be able to control the content and the software through SSH. If you are less experienced, yet you would like to use software which requires Debian, you're able to choose our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel on the order page and you'll be able to manage the whole server like a standard shared web hosting account. You may also take advantage of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we provide, since it includes regular Operating System updates performed by our administrators, among other useful things.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You are able to pick the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with only a click on our order page and based on your choice, we'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS on your machine, to ensure that the software that you will install later will work in the optimal way. Selecting a server with no Control Panel, you will receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you're able to manage everything using a console. A server which is acquired with our Hepsia Control Panel will come with all the software which you will need for your web sites. Though with the latter option the root access is restricted, you can control the server as if it were a shared web hosting account, thus you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you do not have previous experience with this type of website hosting service. When you order our Managed Services upgrade, we'll take care of your server and will update its OS on a weekly basis to ensure that you have the latest and most risk-free version.
