Debian is an Operating System which uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually set up on desktops, it's being used on an increasing number of 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 secure Operating Systems to choose from, due to the fact that security patches are released within days after an issue is found. This is possible since thousands of skilled developers are employed by the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, in addition, they provide 24/7 support via special mailing lists and respond within twenty minutes to any kind of question. Thus, you will receive top-notch 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 several Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. As the Operating System is absolutely free to use, you are able to modify both the core and all of the packages in the way you see fit. Furthermore, you will not be required to pay any license fees.
Debian in VPS Servers
There are several Operating Systems that we provide with our VPS service and Debian is among them, which means that when you need a server with this Operating System, you'll be able to have one in less than an hour. In addition, we offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS to make sure that the VPS you'll obtain will completely cover the system requirements of any web or offline app which you intend 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. With no Control Panel, you'll be able to do everything on your Debian-equipped server through Secure Shell, as you will have root-level access, whereas with the Hepsia Control Panel, the root access will have some limitations, but you'll be able to do everything from your Internet browser using a handy web interface, even if you are not very experienced. With the optional Managed Services package which we offer, we can also maintain your Debian OS updated every week, 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're able to pick all of them with only a click for your brand new machine, based on what software environment the apps that you wish to use require for the best performance. You can also select whether 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 less experienced users who want a Debian-powered server, yet would like to manage it like a shared website hosting account, while the second option is suitable for more experienced users who would like to have more control, since ‘no Control Panel' means only Debian and the Apache web server software, and no other software installed on the server at all. We will also save you time and effort with our Managed Services upgrade, as it includes regular Operating System updates, so that you'll have a secure and stable Debian installation.
