See why a lot of system administrators head straight for Debian whenever selecting a new Operating System for their servers.
Debian is an Operating System that uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually set up on desktop computers, it's being used on more and more web servers as well. The reason is that it's really stable, so a server running it will not have to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be one of the most protected Operating Systems nowadays, since security patches are released within days after an issue is found. This is possible because thousands of well-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 by using special mailing lists and respond in twenty minutes to any kind of question. Thus, 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 completely free to use, you will be able to modify both the core as well as any of the packages in the way you see fit. Also, you won't need to pay any kind of license fees.
Debian in VPS Servers
When you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the VPS server
solutions that we supply and choose this Operating System on the registration page. You'll be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release, as we give you the option to pick the more appropriate one, based on the software that you would like to install on your server once it is set up. In case you are more tech-savvy, you can get a Debian-powered VPS without a Control Panel, so you will have full root access and you are able to control the content and the software through SSH. If you are less experienced, yet you'd like to use an application which requires Debian, you'll be able to select the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel on the order page and you'll be able to manage the entire server like a standard shared web hosting account. In addition, you can benefit from the optional Managed Services upgrade that we offer, as it comes with weekly Operating System updates done by our admins, among other useful things.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
Each and every dedicated server
that we provide can be installed with Debian and we'll test the software environment in detail before we hand over your server so as to ensure that it will perform flawlessly. You can select the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version during the signup process, so the applications which you install can get the maximum out of your server. We will also keep your Operating System up-to-date if you add the additional Managed Services package to your plan. In case you obtain your Debian-driven server without a website hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to do anything you want with the machine and you'll have full root-level access, yet you will have to be more experienced, as all of the tasks will be performed through a Secure Shell console. If you order your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will receive a web interface, through which you'll be able to control domains, files, databases, and many others, and this might be the best option if you are not very experienced, and a specific application which you need to use requires Debian. You will have access to your Hepsia-equipped server through SSH as well, but the things that you will be able to do are restricted.
