Debian is an OS that uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually set up on desktop machines, it is being used on an increasing number of web servers too. The reason is that it's really stable, so a server running it won't have to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be among the most risk-free Operating Systems to choose from, since security patches are released within days after a problem is found. This is possible since thousands of 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 reply within twenty minutes to any kind of question. In this light, you'll obtain 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 distributions with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. Since the Operating System is absolutely free to use, you're 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 license fees.
Debian in VPS Servers
You will be able to get a Debian-powered VPS server with all of our VPS plans and you can choose if the version which will be installed during the server setup process will be 32-bit or 64-bit. In this way, you will ensure that the software environment will match the requirements of the apps which you wish to run and that the latter will run correctly. Throughout the order process, you can also choose whether the VPS will come with the Hepsia Control Panel or with no Control Panel at all. The first option will provide you with an easy-to-use graphical interface, via which you will be able to manage everything related to your world wide web presence using only a web browser - files, e-mail addresses, databases, and many more. Without a Control Panel at hand, you'll need to do everything through a console, yet you will have full root access and you can set up any software that may not be supported by Hepsia. You may also add the optional Managed Services package, which includes weekly Operating System updates.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
With each of our dedicated servers, you can acquire a website hosting powerhouse running Debian right away. This Operating System is one of the choices that you will get throughout the registration process and you can select the 32-bit or the 64-bit version, depending on what software environment your applications need. If you wish to have full root access, you can order a server with no Control Panel, so you'll have more freedom in terms of what you can do with the machine by using SSH. In case you have less experience, but you need Debian for a certain computer program, you can obtain the server with our Hepsia Control Panel. Although the root access is more limited, you'll be able to do anything related to your world wide web content with ease using an intuitive graphical interface. When you add the optional Managed Services bundle to your dedicated server plan, our system administrators will take care of the weekly OS improvements. They'll perform various other important tasks for your benefit as well.
