Debian is an OS which uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually installed on desktops, it's being used on a growing number of web servers too. The reason is that it is really stable, so a server running it will not need to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being among the most risk-free Operating Systems nowadays, because security patches are released within days after an issue is found. This is possible since thousands of well-trained developers are part of 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 question. In this light, you will have 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 several Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. As the Operating System is absolutely free to use, you can modify both the core and any of the packages in any way you see fit. In addition, you will not be required to pay any license fees.
Debian in VPS Hosting
There're a few Operating Systems that we provide with our VPS hosting and Debian is among them, which means that when you need a server with this OS, you can get one in under an hour. In addition, we offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS to ensure that the VPS you'll receive will completely cover the system requirements of any web or offline application that you would like to install on the server. Controlling the content on the server can be done in two ways, according to the choice you make on the order page. With no Control Panel, you will be able to do everything on your Debian-equipped server using Secure Shell, as you'll have root-level access, whereas using the Hepsia Control Panel, the root access will have some limitations, but you'll be able to do everything from your web browser using a user-friendly web interface, even if you aren't very experienced. When you use the optional Managed Services package which we supply, we can also maintain your Debian OS up to date every week, saving you effort and time.
Debian in Dedicated Web Hosting
Each dedicated server that we offer can be installed with Debian and we'll test the program environment carefully before we hand over your server to ensure that it'll perform perfectly. You can pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version during the sign-up process, so the applications which you install can get the maximum out of your server. We can also maintain 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 hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to do anything you want with your machine and you will have full root-level access, yet you will need to be more skillful, because all the tasks will be performed through a Secure Shell console. If you order your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will get a web interface, via which you'll be able to manage domains, files, databases, etcetera, and this might be the best option if you aren't very experienced, and a particular application which you wish to use requires Debian. You will have access to your Hepsia-equipped server through SSH as well, however the things which you are able to do will be limited.
