Debian is an OS which uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually installed on desktop machines, it is being used on an increasing number of web servers too. The reason is that it is very stable, so a server running it will not have to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being among the most secure Operating Systems to be found, because 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 via special e-mail lists and reply in 20 min to any question. In this light, you'll get an outstanding level of 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 is absolutely free to use, you can modify both the core and all of the packages in any way you see fit. Also, you won't have 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 solutions that we supply and choose this Operating System on the registration page. You'll be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release, since we give you the option to choose the right one, according to the software that you wish to install on your server once it is up and running. If you're more tech-savvy, you can get a Debian-powered VPS without a Control Panel, and you will have full root access and you will be able to manage the content and the software using SSH. In case you are less experienced, yet you would like to use software which requires Debian, you will be able to choose the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel on the order page and you can manage the entire server like a standard shared web hosting account. In addition, you can benefit from the optional Managed Services upgrade that we provide, as it features weekly Operating System updates performed by our administrators, among many other useful things.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
Each dedicated server that we supply can be installed with Debian and we'll test the software environment thoroughly before we hand over your server in order to ensure that it will perform flawlessly. You're able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release throughout the sign-up process, so the apps that you set up can get the maximum out of your server. We will also keep your Operating System up-to-date when you add the optional Managed Services package to your plan. If you acquire your Debian-driven server without a web hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to do anything you want with your machine and you'll have full root-level access, yet you will need to be more experienced, because all of the tasks will be performed through a Secure Shell console. When you acquire your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you'll get a web interface, through which you will be able to manage domains, files, databases, etcetera, and this might be the best option when you aren't very experienced, but a particular app that you intend to use requires Debian. You will have access to your Hepsia-equipped server via SSH as well, however the things which you will be able to do will be restricted.
