Debian is an OS which uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually installed on personal computers, it's being used on more and more web servers as well. The reason is that it is really stable, so a server running it won't need to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be one of the most risk-free Operating Systems to be found, since security patches are released within days after an issue is found. This is possible because thousands of well-experienced developers are employed by the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, in addition, they provide 24/7 support by using special mailing lists and respond within twenty minutes to any question. In this light, you'll obtain 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 among the Linux releases with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. Since the Operating System is completely free to use, you'll be able to modify both the core as well as all the packages in the way you see fit. In addition, you will not need to pay any kind of license fees.
Debian in VPS Servers
There are a few Operating Systems that we supply with our Linux VPS servers and Debian is among them, therefore when you need a server with this OS, you can obtain one in less than an hour. We also offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS to make sure that the VPS you'll get will fully cover the system requirements of any kind of web or offline application which you intend 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. Without a Control Panel, you're able to do everything on your Debian-equipped server using Secure Shell, as you'll have root-level access, while through the Hepsia Control Panel, the root access will have some limitations, but you can do everything through your Internet browser using a user-friendly web interface, even when you aren't very experienced. With the optional Managed Services package which we supply, we can also keep your Debian OS up to date on a weekly basis, saving you effort and time.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
With each of our dedicated web hosting plans, you will be able to have a website hosting powerhouse running Debian right away. This Operating System is among the choices that you'll get during the registration process and you can pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit version, depending on what software environment your apps need. When you want to have full root access, you will be able to obtain a server without a Control Panel, so you'll have more freedom in terms of what you can do with the machine by using SSH. If you have less experience, yet you need Debian for a particular piece of software, you'll be able to get the server with our Hepsia Control Panel. Despite the fact that the root access will be more limited, you will be able to do anything related to your world wide web content easily through an intuitive graphical interface. When you add the optional Managed Services bundle to your dedicated server package, our sysadmins will deal with the weekly OS improvements. They will perform other useful tasks for you too.
