Debian is an OS that uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually installed on desktop computers, it's being used on a growing number of web servers too. The reason is that it's very stable, so a server running it won't have to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be among the most safe Operating Systems nowadays, as security patches are released within days after an issue is found. This is possible since thousands of skilled 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 via special e-mail lists and reply within twenty minutes to any kind of question. Thus, you'll get top-notch 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 costs nothing to use, you are able to modify both the core as well as all of the packages in the way you see fit. Also, you will not have to pay any kind of license fees.
Debian in VPS Servers
You are able to obtain a Debian-powered VPS server with all of our VPS plans and you can choose if the version that will be installed during the server setup process should be 32-bit or 64-bit. In this way, you can ensure that the software environment will meet the requirements of the apps which you want to run and that the latter will function efficiently. Throughout the order process, you can also decide whether the VPS will come with the Hepsia Control Panel or without Control Panel at all. The first option provides you with an easy-to-use graphical interface, through that you will be able to manage everything related to your web presence using only an Internet browser - files, e-mails, databases, and many more. With no Control Panel at hand, you'll have to make everything through a console, however you will have full root access and you'll be able to install any software that may not be supported by Hepsia. You can also add our optional Managed Services package, which includes regular Operating System updates.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You'll be able to choose the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with a mouse click on our order page and based on your choice, we'll 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 perform in the best possible way. Picking a server with no Control Panel, you'll get Debian and the Apache web server software and you'll be able to manage everything using a console. A server that is obtained with our Hepsia Control Panel will include all of the software which you may need for your Internet sites. Though with the latter option the root access is restricted, you'll be able to control the server as if it were a shared hosting account, so that you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you don't have previous experience with this type of hosting service. If you buy the Managed Services upgrade, we will take care of your server and will update its OS on a weekly basis to make sure that you have the most current and most safe edition.
