Debian is an OS which uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually set up on desktop computers, it's being used on more and more web servers too. The reason is that it's really stable, so a server running it won't need to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being among the most safe Operating Systems to be found, due to the fact that security patches are released within days after a problem is found. This is possible since thousands of experienced developers work for the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, they also provide 24/7 support by using special e-mail lists and reply within 20 minutes to any kind of question. In this light, 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 releases with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. Since the Operating System costs nothing to use, you will be able to modify both the core as well as all of the packages in any way you see fit. Also, you won't need to pay any license fees.
Debian in VPS Servers
There are a few Operating Systems that we supply with our Linux VPS servers and Debian is among them, therefore when you need a server with this OS, you'll be able to acquire one in under an hour. We also offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS to ensure that the VPS you will get will fully cover the system requirements of any web or offline application that you would like to install on the server. Controlling the content on the server can be performed in two ways, according to the choice you make on the order page. Without a Control Panel, you're able to do everything on your Debian-equipped server through Secure Shell, as you will have root-level access, whereas through the Hepsia Control Panel, the root access will have certain restrictions, but you will be able to do everything through your browser using an intuitive web interface, even when you aren't very experienced. When you use the optional Managed Services package which we supply, we will also keep your Debian OS up to date every week, saving you effort and time.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
32-bit and 64-bit versions of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you are able to pick all of them with just a click for your new server, based on what software environment the apps which you want to use require for the best performance. You may also choose whether our Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on the server or whether it should come without Control Panel at all. The first option is suitable for inexperienced users who want a Debian-powered server, yet want to manage it like a shared web hosting account, whereas the second option is suitable for more experienced users who would like 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 set up on the server whatsoever. We can also save you time and effort with our Managed Services upgrade, as it includes regular Operating System updates, to ensure that you'll have a secure and stable Debian installation.
