See why lots of system admins head straight for Debian whenever choosing a new OS for their servers.
Debian is an OS which uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually installed on desktop computers, it's being used on more and more web servers too. The reason is that it is very stable, so a server running it won't have to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being one of the most risk-free Operating Systems available, as security patches are released within days after a problem is found. This is possible because thousands of well-experienced developers are working for the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, they also provide 24/7 support through special mailing lists and reply 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 depth, and not from a third-party support team. Debian is also one of several Linux releases with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. Since the Operating System is absolutely free to use, you're able to modify both the core and all the packages in any way you see fit. In addition, you won't have to pay any license fees.
Debian in VPS Hosting
There are several Operating Systems that we provide with our Linux VPS hosting
and Debian is one of them, which means that when you need a server with this Operating System, you'll be able to acquire one in less than one hour. In addition, we offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS to ensure that the VPS you'll get will completely cover the system requirements of any kind of web or offline app that you wish to install on the server. Controlling the content on the server can be done in two ways, based on the choice you make on the order page. Without a Control Panel, you're able to do everything on your Debian-equipped server through Secure Shell, as you'll have root-level access, whereas through 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 are not very experienced. With the optional Managed Services package which we offer, we'll also keep your Debian OS up to date every week, saving you time and effort.
Debian in Dedicated Web Hosting
You will be able to choose the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server
with just a mouse click on our order page and according to your choice, we will set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS on your machine, so that the software that you will install later will work in the best way. Using a server devoid of Control Panel, you'll get Debian and the Apache web server software and you're able to control everything using a console. A server which is ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel will come with all the software which you will need for your Internet sites. Even though with the latter option the root access is restricted, you are able to control the server as if it were a shared web hosting account, thus you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you do not have previous experience with this kind of web hosting service. When you order our Managed Services upgrade, we will maintain your server and will update its OS on a weekly basis in order to ensure that you have the latest and most risk-free release.
