Debian is an Operating System which uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually set up on desktop machines, it is 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 regarded as being one of the most safe Operating Systems in existence, since security patches are released within days after an issue is discovered. This is possible because thousands of experienced developers are employed by the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, but they also provide 24/7 support via special mailing lists and respond within 20 min to any question. In this light, you will 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 releases with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. Since the Operating System is free to use, you are able to modify both the core and all of the packages in any way you see fit. Furthermore, you won't have to pay any license fees.
Debian in VPS Web Hosting
There're a few Operating Systems that we provide with our Linux VPS web hosting packages and Debian is one of them, which means that if you need a server with this Operating System, you will be able to have one in under one hour. In addition, we offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS to ensure that the VPS you'll receive will completely cover the system requirements of any kind of web or offline app which 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. With no Control Panel, you'll be able to do everything on your Debian-equipped server through Secure Shell, as you'll have root-level access, whereas using the Hepsia Control Panel, the root access will have certain limitations, but you can do everything through your web browser using an intuitive web interface, even if you are not very experienced. With the optional Managed Services package that we offer, we will also maintain your Debian OS up to date every week, saving you effort and time.
Debian in Dedicated Servers Hosting
32-bit and 64-bit versions of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you'll be able to pick all of them with just a click for your brand new server, depending on what software environment the applications which you would like to use require for optimal performance. You can also choose whether our Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on the server or if it should come without Control Panel at all. The first option is made for inexperienced users who need a Debian-powered server, but want to manage it like a shared hosting account, while the second option is suitable for more experienced users who want to have more control, as ‘no Control Panel' stands for only Debian and the Apache web server software, but no other software installed on the server whatsoever. We'll also save your time and effort with the Managed Services upgrade, because it comes with regular Operating System updates, to ensure that you'll have a safe and stable Debian installation.
