Debian is an Operating System that uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually installed on personal computers, it's being used on a growing number of web servers as well. The reason is that it's really stable, so a server running it will not need to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being among the most secure Operating Systems to be found, as security patches are released within days after a problem is found. This is possible since thousands of well-trained 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 via special e-mail lists and respond within twenty minutes to any kind of question. Thus, you will have top-level support directly from the developers who know their own platform in detail, 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 completely free to use, you are able to modify both the core and all the packages in any way you see fit. Furthermore, you will not be required to pay any license fees.
Debian in VPS Servers
When you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the VPS server packages that we provide and choose this Operating System on the order page. You will be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release, because we give you the option to select the right one, depending on the software that you would like to install on your server once it's set up. In case you are more tech-savvy, you can get a Debian-powered VPS with no Control Panel, and you will have full root access and you're able to control the content and the software through SSH. If you are less experienced, yet you would like to use an application that requires Debian, you're able to select our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel on the order page and you can manage the entire server like a standard shared hosting account. You may also reap the benefits of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we provide, because it includes once a week Operating System updates performed by our admins, among various other useful things.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You are able to select the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server with only a single click on our registration page and based on your choice, we'll install the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS on your machine, to ensure that the software that you will install later will work in the best way. Picking a server without Control Panel, you will get Debian and the Apache web server software and you're able to manage everything through a console. A server that is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel will include all the software that you will need for your web sites. Although with the latter option the root access is restricted, you can manage the server as if it were a shared website hosting account, so you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you don't have previous expertise in this kind of website hosting service. If you get our Managed Services upgrade, we'll maintain your server and will update its OS every week so as to ensure that you have the most recent and most safe edition.
