Debian is an OS that uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually set up on desktop machines, it is being used on a growing number of web servers as well. The reason is that it's very stable, so a server running it won't need to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be one of the most risk-free Operating Systems to choose from, because security patches are released within days after a problem is discovered. 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, they also provide 24/7 support through special e-mail lists and respond within 20 min to any kind of question. In this light, you will have 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 the Linux releases with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. As the Operating System is completely free to use, you'll be able to modify both the core as well as any of the packages in any way you see fit. Also, you will not have to pay any license fees.
Debian in VPS Servers
There are several Operating Systems that we supply with our VPS web hosting plans and Debian is one of them, which means that if you need a server with this Operating System, you can get one in under an hour. We also offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS to make sure that the VPS you'll receive will fully cover the system requirements of any kind of web or offline app that you want 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. Without a Control Panel, you'll be able to do everything on your Debian-equipped server using Secure Shell, as you will have root-level access, while using the Hepsia Control Panel, the root access will have certain restrictions, but you will be able to do everything from your Internet browser using an intuitive web interface, even when you are not very experienced. With the optional Managed Services package which we offer, we will also keep your Debian OS updated every week, saving you effort and time.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You'll be able to pick the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server with a mouse click on our order page and depending on your choice, we'll install the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS on the machine, so that the software that you'll install later will work in the very best way. Picking a server with no Control Panel, you'll receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you'll be able to manage everything using a console. A server that's acquired with the Hepsia Control Panel will feature all the software that you will need for your web sites. Though with the latter option the root access will be limited, you will be able to manage the server as if it were a shared web hosting account, so you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you do not have previous expertise in this kind of hosting service. If you order the Managed Services upgrade, we will take care of your server and will update its OS every week so as to ensure that you have the most recent and most secure edition.
