Debian is an OS that uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually set up on desktop machines, it is being used on more and more web servers as well. The reason is that it is 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 protected Operating Systems available, due to the fact that security patches are released within days after an issue is found. This is possible because thousands of skilled developers work for 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 minutes to any kind of question. In this light, you will have top-notch 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 is absolutely free to use, you will be able to modify both the core and all of the packages in any way you see fit. Also, you will not 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
solutions that we offer and pick this Operating System on the order page. You will be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release, since we give you the option to choose the right one, based on the software which you want to install on your server once it is set up. In case you're more tech-savvy, you can get a Debian-powered VPS without a Control Panel, and you will have full root access and you can manage the content and the software via SSH. In case you are less experienced, yet you would like to use an application that requires Debian, you are able to choose the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel on the order page and you'll be able to manage the entire server like a standard shared hosting account. You can also take advantage of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we supply, because it includes weekly Operating System updates performed by our administrators, among other useful things.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
Each and every dedicated server
that we offer can be installed with Debian and we will test the software environment completely before we hand over your machine to make sure that it will perform flawlessly. You are able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version throughout the registration process, so that the apps that you set up can get the maximum out of your server. We will also keep your Operating System up-to-date if you add the additional Managed Services package to your plan. When you obtain your Debian-driven server without a website hosting Control Panel, you can do anything you want with your machine and you will have full root-level access, yet you will have to be more skillful, as all the tasks will be performed using a Secure Shell console. If you acquire your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you'll have a web interface, via which you can control domains, files, databases, etcetera, and this might be a better option when you aren't very experienced, and a specific application that you need to use requires Debian. You have access to your Hepsia-equipped server via SSH as well, yet the things which you're able to do are limited.
