Debian is an Operating System that uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually set up on desktop computers, it's being used on more and more web servers as well. The reason is that it is really stable, so a server running it won't need 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 an issue is found. This is possible because thousands of well-experienced developers are part of 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 mailing lists and reply within 20 min to any question. In this light, you will get an outstanding level of support directly from the developers who know their own platform in detail, and not from a third-party support team. Debian is also one of the Linux releases with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. Since the Operating System is absolutely free to use, you can modify both the core as well as all the packages in the way you see fit. Also, you will not be required to pay any license fees.
Debian in VPS Servers
When you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the VPS server plans that we supply and select this Operating System on the order page. You can choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release, because we give you the option to pick the more appropriate one, depending on the software that you want to install on your server once it's up and running. In case you're more tech-savvy, you may get a Debian-powered VPS with no Control Panel, so that you'll have full root access and you'll be able to control the content and the software via SSH. In case you are less experienced, but you would like to use software which requires Debian, you will be able to choose the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel on the order page and you can manage the whole server like a standard shared hosting account. You can also benefit from the optional Managed Services upgrade that we supply, because it includes once a week Operating System updates performed by our administrators, among many other useful things.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You'll be able to choose the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server with only a click on our order page and based on your choice, we'll install the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS on the machine, to ensure that the software that you'll install later will perform in the best way. Selecting a server with no Control Panel, you will get Debian and the Apache web server software and you'll be able to manage everything through a console. A server that's acquired with our Hepsia Control Panel will include all the software that you may need for your Internet sites. Although with the latter option the root access will be restricted, you will be able to control the server as if it were a shared website hosting account, therefore you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you don't have previous expertise in this kind of website hosting service. When you order our Managed Services upgrade, we'll maintain your server and will update its OS every week in order to ensure that you have the most current and most risk-free edition.
