Debian is an OS that uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually set up on desktop computers, it's being used on a growing number of web servers as well. The reason is that it is really stable, so a server running it won't need to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being one of the most secure Operating Systems you can get, since security patches are released within days after a problem is found. This is possible since thousands of experienced developers are employed by 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 mailing lists and respond in 20 minutes to any question. Thus, you will obtain top-level 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 distributions with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. As the Operating System is absolutely free to use, you can modify both the core as well as all the packages in any way you see fit. Also, you won't have to pay any license fees.
Debian in VPS Web Hosting
If you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the virtual private server packages that we provide and select this Operating System on the order page. You'll be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release, as we give you the option to select the right one, based on the software which you'd like to install on your server once it is up and running. When you are more tech-savvy, you can get a Debian-powered VPS without a Control Panel, so that you'll have full root access and you're able to manage the content and the software via SSH. If you are less experienced, but you'd like to use an application that requires Debian, you're able to select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page and you'll be able to manage the entire server like a standard shared web hosting account. You may also take full advantage of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we provide, since it comes with once a week Operating System updates performed by our administrators, among other useful things.
Debian in Dedicated Servers 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, based on what software environment the apps that you want to use require for top notch performance. You may also select if our Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on the server or whether it should come with no Control Panel at all. The first option is suitable for inexperienced users who want a Debian-powered server, yet want to manage it like a shared web hosting account, while the second option is good for more experienced users who would like to have more control, as ‘no Control Panel' means 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, since it includes routine Operating System updates, so that you'll have a safe and stable Debian installation.
