Debian is an OS that uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually installed on desktop machines, it is being used on an increasing number of web servers too. The reason is that it's very stable, so a server running it won't have to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be among the most safe Operating Systems in existence, since security patches are released within days after an issue is discovered. 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, in addition, they provide 24/7 support by using special mailing lists and respond within twenty minutes to any kind of question. Thus, you'll receive 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 one of several Linux releases with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. As the Operating System is absolutely free to use, you'll 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 kind of 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'll be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version, because we give you the option to choose the right one, based on the software that you wish to install on your server once it is set up. If you're more tech-savvy, you can get a Debian-powered VPS with no Control Panel, so that you will have full root access and you will be able to control the content and the software using SSH. If you are less experienced, but you'd like to use an application that requires Debian, you are able to select the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel on the order page and you will be able to manage the entire server like a standard shared web hosting account. In addition, you can benefit from the optional Managed Services upgrade that we provide, because it comes with once a week Operating System updates performed by our administrators, among many other useful things.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You are able to select the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server with just a mouse click on our order page and based on your choice, we will install the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS on the machine, so that the software that you will install later will work in the best possible way. Choosing a server with no Control Panel, you'll get Debian and the Apache web server software and you'll be able to manage everything using a console. A server which is acquired with the Hepsia Control Panel will come with all the software which you may need for your sites. Though with the latter option the root access is limited, you'll be able to manage the server as if it were a shared hosting account, thus you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you have no previous experience with this type of web hosting service. When you get the Managed Services upgrade, we will maintain your server and will update its OS weekly to ensure that you have the most recent and most secure edition.
