Debian is an OS which uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually set up on desktop machines, it is being used on a growing number of web servers as well. The reason is that it is really stable, so a server running it will not have to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being among the most safe Operating Systems available, because security patches are released within days after an issue is discovered. 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, they also provide 24/7 support through special mailing lists and respond within 20 min to any kind of question. In this light, you'll receive 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 one of several Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. Since the Operating System is free to use, you'll be able to modify both the core as well as any of the packages in any way you see fit. In addition, you won't be required to pay any license fees.
Debian in VPS Hosting
You'll be able to get a Debian-powered virtual private server with all of our VPS plans and you'll be able to choose if the version which will be installed throughout the server setup process should be 32-bit or 64-bit. This way, you will make sure that the software environment will match the system requirements of the applications that you need to run and that the latter will run efficiently. During the order process, you can also decide if the VPS will come with the Hepsia Control Panel or without a Control Panel at all. The first option provides you with an easy to navigate graphical interface, through which you will be able to manage everything related to your online presence using only a web browser - files, e-mail addresses, databases, and the like. With no Control Panel at hand, you will have to do everything via a console, yet you will have full root access and you'll be able to set up any kind of software that may not be compatible with Hepsia. You may also add our optional Managed Services package, which includes weekly Operating System updates.
Debian in Dedicated Web Hosting
With each of our Linux dedicated hosting services, you'll be able to acquire a web hosting powerhouse running Debian in no time. This Operating System is among the choices that you'll get during the registration process and you are able to choose 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're able to obtain a server without a Control Panel, so you will have more freedom in terms of what you can do with the machine using SSH. If you have less experience, but you need Debian for a particular computer program, you'll be able to get the server with our Hepsia Control Panel. Though the root access is more limited, you can do anything related to your online 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 updates. They will perform many other important tasks for you too.
