Debian is an OS which uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually installed on desktops, it's being used on an increasing number of web servers as well. The reason is that it is really stable, so a server running it won't have to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be one of the most secure Operating Systems to be found, due to the fact that security patches are released within days after a problem is discovered. This is possible because thousands of qualified developers work for the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, they also provide 24/7 support by using special mailing lists and reply in twenty minutes to any question. In this light, you will have 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 releases with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. As the Operating System is completely free to use, you will be able to modify both the core as well as any of the packages in any way you see fit. In addition, you will not have to pay any license fees.
Debian in VPS Servers
If you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the VPS server
solutions that we supply and pick this Operating System on the order page. You will be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release, since we give you the option to select the right one, depending on the software which you'd like to install on your server once it's up and running. When you are more tech-savvy, you can get a Debian-powered VPS without a 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, but you would like to use an application which requires Debian, you're able to choose our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel on the order page and you can manage the whole server like a standard shared hosting account. In addition, you can reap the benefits of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we offer, because it comes with once a week Operating System updates done by our administrators, among other useful things.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
32-bit and 64-bit versions of Debian are available on our dedicated server
order page and you can pick any of them with just a click for your brand new server, based on what software environment the apps which you would like to use require for optimal performance. You may also select whether our Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on the server or whether it should come with no Control Panel at all. The first option is made for less experienced users who need a Debian-powered server, yet want to manage it like a shared web hosting account, while the second option is suitable for more experienced users who would like to have more control, as ‘no Control Panel' means only Debian and the Apache web server software, and no other software installed on the server whatsoever. We'll also save your time and effort with our Managed Services upgrade, because it features routine Operating System updates, so that you'll have a secure and stable Debian installation.
