Debian is an OS which uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually installed on desktop 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 need to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be among the most secure Operating Systems out there, since security patches are released within days after a problem is discovered. This is possible since 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 by using special mailing lists and reply within 20 min to any question. In this light, you'll have 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 one of several Linux releases with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. Since the Operating System is free to use, you are able to modify both the core as well as all of the packages in any way you see fit. Also, you will not be required to pay any kind of license fees.
Debian in VPS
When you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the virtual private server
packages that we supply and choose this Operating System on the registration page. You can select the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release, because we give you the option to pick the right one, based on the software that you would like to install on your server once it is set up. If you are more tech-savvy, you can get a Debian-powered VPS with no Control Panel, and you'll have full root access and you're able to manage the content and the software through SSH. In case you are less experienced, yet you would like to use an application that requires Debian, you'll be able to choose our Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page and you will be able to manage the entire server like a standard shared hosting account. In addition, you can benefit from the optional Managed Services upgrade that we offer, because it includes weekly Operating System updates performed by our administrators, among various other useful things.
Debian in Dedicated Hosting
32-bit and 64-bit versions of Debian are available on our dedicated server
order page and you will be able to select any of them with only a single click for your new machine, depending on what software environment the applications which you wish to use require for top notch performance. You can also choose if our Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on the server or whether it should come without any Control Panel at all. The first option is suitable for less experienced users who want a Debian-powered server, yet wish to manage it like a shared website hosting account, while the second option is good for more advanced users who wish to have more control, since ‘no Control Panel' stands for only Debian and the Apache web server software, but no other software set up on the server at all. We will also save your time and effort with the Managed Services upgrade, because it includes regular Operating System updates, so that you will have a secure and stable Debian installation.
