See why lots of system administrators head straight for Debian whenever selecting a new Operating System for their servers.
Debian is an OS that uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually set up on desktop computers, it's being used on a growing number of web servers too. The reason is that it is really stable, so a server running it will not need to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being among the most protected Operating Systems nowadays, since security patches are released within days after an issue is discovered. This is possible because thousands of experienced developers are part of the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, in addition, they provide 24/7 support via special e-mail lists and reply in 20 minutes to any question. Thus, you will obtain top-level 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 distributions with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. As the Operating System is completely free to use, you are able to modify both the core as well as all of the packages in any way you see fit. Also, you will not need to pay any license fees.
Debian in VPS
There are several Operating Systems that we supply with our Linux VPS services
and Debian is one of them, which means that when you'd like to have a server with this OS, you will be able to acquire one in less than one hour. In addition, we offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS to make sure that the VPS you will have will completely cover the system requirements of any kind of web or offline app that you want 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. 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, while with the Hepsia Control Panel, the root access will have certain limitations, but you will be able to do everything from your web browser using an intuitive web interface, even when you aren't very experienced. When you use the optional Managed Services package which we supply, we will also maintain your Debian OS up to date on a weekly basis, saving you time and effort.
Debian in Dedicated Hosting
You'll be able to choose the Debian OS for your new dedicated server
with just a click on our order page and according to your choice, we will install the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS on the machine, so that the software that you will install later will perform in the optimal way. With a server without any Control Panel, you will receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you can control everything through a console. A server that is acquired with our Hepsia Control Panel will come with all of the software that you will need for your sites. Although with the latter option the root access will be limited, you'll be able to manage the server as if it were a shared website hosting account, which means that you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you don't have previous experience with this type of website hosting service. If you order the Managed Services upgrade, we'll maintain your server and will update its OS weekly to ensure that you have the most current and most safe version.
