Debian is an OS which uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually set up on personal computers, it's being used on a growing number of web servers too. The reason is that it's really stable, so a server running it will not have to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being among the most safe Operating Systems in existence, as security patches are released within days after a problem is found. This is possible because thousands of well-trained 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 via special mailing lists and respond within 20 minutes to any kind of question. Thus, you will get an outstanding level of 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 distributions with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. As the Operating System is free to use, you will be able to modify both the core as well as 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're a few Operating Systems that we provide with our VPS web hosting service
and Debian is one of them, therefore when you need a server with this OS, you will be able to obtain one in less than one hour. We also offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS to ensure that the VPS you will obtain will completely cover the system requirements of any web or offline app which you would like to install on the server. Managing the content on the server can be done in two ways, based on the choice you make on the order page. Without a Control Panel, you'll be able to do everything on your Debian-equipped server using Secure Shell, as you'll have root-level access, while through the Hepsia Control Panel, the root access will have some limitations, but you will be able to do everything from your browser using an intuitive web interface, even when you aren't very experienced. When you use the optional Managed Services package that we offer, we'll also maintain your Debian OS up to date every week, saving you time and effort.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You can select the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server
with a mouse click on our registration page and depending on your choice, we'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS on the machine, to ensure that the software that you'll install later will perform in the optimal way. Using a server without Control Panel, you'll receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you'll be able to control everything using a console. A server that's obtained with the Hepsia Control Panel will come with all of the software which you may need for your websites. Even though with the latter option the root access will be limited, you are able to manage the server as if it were a shared website hosting account, so that you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you do not have previous experience with this type of web hosting service. When you get the Managed Services upgrade, we'll take care of your server and will update its OS every week so as to ensure that you have the most recent and most risk-free release.
