Debian is an OS which uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually set up on desktops, it is being used on a growing number of web servers as well. The reason is that it is really stable, so a server running it will not have to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being one of the most safe Operating Systems to choose from, because security patches are released within days after a problem is found. This is possible because thousands of experienced developers are working for the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, but they also provide 24/7 support by using special mailing lists and reply within 20 minutes to any question. Thus, you'll receive 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. Since the Operating System is free to use, you'll be able to modify both the core and all of the packages in the way you see fit. In addition, you will not need to pay any license fees.
Debian in VPS Hosting
There're a few Operating Systems that we provide with our Linux VPS hosting and Debian is one of them, so when you need a server with this OS, you can acquire one in less than 1 hour. In addition, we offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS to ensure that the VPS you will get will fully cover the system requirements of any kind of web or offline application that you would like to install on the server. Managing 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 can do everything on your Debian-equipped server through Secure Shell, as you will have root-level access, whereas using the Hepsia Control Panel, the root access will have certain limitations, but you can do everything through your web browser using a handy web interface, even when you are not very experienced. Using the optional Managed Services package which we supply, we'll also keep your Debian OS updated every week, saving you effort and time.
Debian in Dedicated Web Hosting
Each and every dedicated server that we offer can be set up with Debian and we'll test the software environment in depth before we hand over your machine to ensure that it'll perform flawlessly. You can choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version throughout the sign-up process, so that the apps that you install can get the maximum out of your server. We will also keep your Operating System up-to-date if you add the optional Managed Services package to your plan. When you order your Debian-driven server without a web hosting Control Panel, you will be able to do anything you like with your machine and you'll have full root-level access, yet you will need to be more experienced, since all of the tasks will be performed using a Secure Shell console. If you obtain your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you'll have a web interface, through which you can control domains, files, databases, etcetera, and this might be the best option if you aren't very experienced, but a certain app which you intend to use requires Debian. You can access your Hepsia-equipped server via SSH as well, yet the things that you'll be able to do are restricted.
