Debian is an Operating System that uses the Linux kernel. Even 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 really stable, so a server running it will not have to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be one of the most protected Operating Systems available, since security patches are released within days after an issue is discovered. This is possible because thousands of experienced developers are employed by the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, but they also provide 24/7 support via special mailing lists and reply within twenty minutes to any kind of question. Thus, you'll get top-notch 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 can modify both the core as well as all of the packages in the way you see fit. Furthermore, you won't be required to pay any license fees.
Debian in VPS Web Hosting
When you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the virtual private server plans that we supply and select this Operating System on the registration page. You will be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version, as we give you the option to pick the right one, based on the software which you want to install on your server once it is up and running. In case you are more tech-savvy, you may get a Debian-powered VPS with no Control Panel, so that you'll have full root access and you are able to control the content and the software using SSH. In case you are less experienced, yet you'd like to use software which requires Debian, you are able to select our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel on the order page and you can manage the whole server like a standard shared hosting account. You may also take full advantage of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we provide, since it comes with weekly Operating System updates performed by our administrators, among various other useful things.
Debian in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Each dedicated server that we provide can be set up with Debian and we'll test the software environment in depth before we hand over your server so as to make sure that it'll perform properly. You can select the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version throughout the signup process, so the apps which 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. In case you obtain your Debian-driven server without a hosting Control Panel, you will be able to do anything you want with your machine and you will have full root-level access, but you will need to be more skillful, as all the tasks will be performed using a Secure Shell console. If you get your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you'll get a web interface, through which you'll be able to control domains, files, databases, etc, and this might be the best option in case you aren't very experienced, but a particular application which you want to use requires Debian. You'll have access to your Hepsia-equipped server through SSH as well, but the things that you are able to do will be limited.
