Debian is an Operating System that uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually installed on desktop machines, it's being used on more and more web servers as well. The reason is that it is very stable, so a server running it won't need to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be among the most protected Operating Systems available, because security patches are released within days after a problem is discovered. This is possible since thousands of experienced developers are working 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 reply in 20 minutes to any question. In this light, you will get 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 one of the Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. Since the Operating System costs nothing to use, you are able to modify both the core and all of the packages in any way you see fit. Also, you will not have to pay any kind of license fees.
Debian in VPS Servers
There're several Operating Systems that we provide with our VPS servers and Debian is among them, which means that when you'd like to have a server with this OS, you'll be able to acquire one in less than an hour. In addition, we offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS to make sure that the VPS you'll get will fully cover the system requirements of any web or offline application which you would like to install on the server. Controlling 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 will be able to do everything on your Debian-equipped server using Secure Shell, as you will have root-level access, while through the Hepsia Control Panel, the root access will have some limitations, but you can do everything through your Internet browser using an intuitive web interface, even when you aren't very experienced. Using the optional Managed Services package that we supply, we will also maintain your Debian OS up to date on a weekly basis, saving you time and effort.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You are able to pick the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server with just a click on our order page and according to your choice, we'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS on the machine, to ensure that the software that you will install later will work in the very best way. Choosing a server devoid of Control Panel, you'll receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you are able to manage everything using a console. A server that's obtained with our Hepsia Control Panel will include all the software that you'll need for your sites. Even though with the latter option the root access is restricted, you'll be able to control the server as if it were a shared web hosting account, so that you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you don't have previous expertise in this kind of hosting service. When you purchase the Managed Services upgrade, we'll take care of your server and will update its OS every week to make sure that you have the most recent and most safe release.
