Debian is an OS that uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually set up on personal computers, it's being used on more and more web servers too. The reason is that it is really stable, so a server running it will not have to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being among the most risk-free Operating Systems in existence, due to the fact that security patches are released within days after a problem 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, they also provide 24/7 support via special e-mail lists and respond within twenty minutes to any question. In this light, you'll get 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 among the Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. Since the Operating System is free to use, you will be able to modify both the core as well as all the packages in any way you see fit. In addition, you will not need to pay any license fees.
Debian in VPS Hosting
When you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the virtual private server solutions that we provide and pick this Operating System on the order page. You can select the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version, since we give you the option to pick the right one, based on the software that you want to install on your server once it is set up. When you're more tech-savvy, you may get a Debian-powered VPS without a Control Panel, so that you'll have full root access and you'll be able to control the content and the software using SSH. In case you are less experienced, yet you'd like to use an app which requires Debian, you're able to select our Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page and you can manage the entire server like a standard shared hosting account. In addition, you can take full advantage of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we supply, since it features once a week Operating System updates performed by our administrators, among other useful things.
Debian in Dedicated Web Hosting
You will be able to choose the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server with a single click on our order page and according to 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 way. With a server without any Control Panel, you will receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you'll be able to manage everything using a console. A server which is acquired with the Hepsia Control Panel will feature all the software which you will need for your sites. Even though with the latter option the root access is restricted, you are able to control the server as if it were a shared hosting account, so that you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you do not have previous experience with this type of web hosting service. If you get our Managed Services upgrade, we will take care of your server and will update its OS weekly in order to make sure that you have the latest and most safe version.
