Debian is an Operating System that uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually installed on personal computers, it's being used on more and more web servers as well. The reason is that it's very stable, so a server running it won't need to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being one of the most protected Operating Systems to choose from, as security patches are released within days after a problem is found. This is possible because thousands of experienced developers work for the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, they also provide 24/7 support by using special e-mail lists and reply within twenty minutes to any 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 among the Linux releases with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. As the Operating System is free to use, you'll be able to modify both the core and any of the packages in any way you see fit. In addition, you will not have to pay any kind of 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 if you need a server with this OS, you can obtain one in less than one 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 app which you intend to install on the server. Controlling the content on the server can be done in two ways, according to the choice you make on the order page. With no Control Panel, you will be able to do everything on your Debian-equipped server through Secure Shell, as you'll have root-level access, whereas with the Hepsia Control Panel, the root access will have some restrictions, but you can do everything through your web browser using a handy web interface, even if you are not very experienced. When you use the optional Managed Services package that we offer, we'll also maintain your Debian OS updated on a weekly basis, saving you effort and time.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You'll be able to pick the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server
with only a mouse click on our registration page and based on your choice, we'll install the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS on your machine, so that the software that you'll install later will perform in the best possible way. Choosing a server without any Control Panel, you will get Debian and the Apache web server software and you are able to manage everything using a console. A server which is acquired with our Hepsia Control Panel will come with all the software which you may need for your sites. Though with the latter option the root access will be limited, you will be able to manage the server as if it were a shared web hosting account, so you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you don't have previous expertise in this type of web hosting service. When you purchase the Managed Services upgrade, we'll take care of your server and will update its OS on a weekly basis so as to ensure that you have the most current and most secure edition.
