Debian is an OS that uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually installed on personal computers, it is being used on a growing number of web servers too. The reason is that it is very stable, so a server running it will not need to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be one of the most secure Operating Systems nowadays, since security patches are released within days after an issue is found. This is possible since thousands of well-trained developers are working for 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 e-mail lists and reply in twenty minutes to any question. Thus, you'll have 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 - more than 30,000. As the Operating System costs nothing to use, you can modify both the core as well as all the packages in the way you see fit. Also, you will not need to pay any license fees.
Debian in VPS Servers
When you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the VPS server
plans that we offer and pick this Operating System on the order page. You can choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release, since we give you the option to choose the more appropriate one, based on the software which you would like to install on your server once it is set up. If you are more tech-savvy, you may get a Debian-powered VPS with no Control Panel, so that you'll have full root access and you're able to control the content and the software using SSH. If you are less experienced, but you would like to use an app which requires Debian, you're able to choose the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel on the order page and you will be able to manage the entire server like a standard shared hosting account. You can also take advantage of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we supply, because it features once a week Operating System updates done by our administrators, among other useful things.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
32-bit and 64-bit editions of Debian are available on our dedicated server
order page and you'll be able to pick any of them with just a click for your new server, depending on what software environment the applications that you would like to use require for top notch performance. You may also choose if our Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on the server or if it should come without a Control Panel at all. The first option is made for less experienced users who need a Debian-powered server, yet wish to control it like a shared website hosting account, while the second option is good for more experienced users who need to have more control, as ‘no Control Panel' stands for only Debian and the Apache web server software, and no other software installed on the server whatsoever. We can also save you time and effort with the Managed Services upgrade, since it comes with routine Operating System updates, to ensure that you'll have a secure and stable Debian installation.
