Debian is an Operating System which uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually installed on desktop machines, it's being used on more and more web servers too. The reason is that it is very stable, so a server running it will not need to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being one of the most safe Operating Systems you can get, because security patches are released within days after a problem is discovered. This is possible because thousands of well-experienced developers work 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 respond in twenty minutes to any question. Thus, you'll enjoy 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 several Linux distributions 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 and all of the packages in any way you see fit. Furthermore, you will not be required to pay any license fees.
Debian in VPS Servers
There are a few Operating Systems that we provide with our VPS plans and Debian is among them, which means that when you need a server with this Operating System, you can obtain one in less than 1 hour. In addition, we offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS to ensure that the VPS you'll obtain will fully cover the system requirements of any web or offline application that you intend to install on the server. Managing 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'll be able to do everything on your Debian-equipped server using Secure Shell, as you will have root-level access, whereas using the Hepsia Control Panel, the root access will have some limitations, but you'll be able to do everything from your web browser using an intuitive web interface, even when you aren't very experienced. Using the optional Managed Services package which we offer, we can also maintain your Debian OS up to date weekly, saving you effort and time.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
With all of our Linux dedicated web hosting plans, you can obtain a hosting powerhouse running Debian in no time. This Operating System is among the choices that you will get during the registration process and you are able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit release, depending on what software environment your apps need. In case you want to have full root access, you can acquire a server without a Control Panel, so you'll have more freedom with regard to what you can do with your machine using SSH. When you have less experience, yet you need Debian for a certain computer program, you can get the server with our Hepsia Control Panel. Regardless that the root access is more limited, you are able to do anything related to your online content easily using a time and effort saving graphical interface. When you add the optional Managed Services bundle to your dedicated server package, our system administrators will deal with the weekly OS enhancements. They will perform various other important tasks on your behalf as well.
