Debian is an Operating System which uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually set up on desktops, 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 won't have to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be one of the most secure Operating Systems in existence, because security patches are released within days after a problem is found. This is possible since thousands of skilled 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 through special e-mail lists and reply in 20 min to any kind of question. In this light, you'll enjoy an outstanding level of 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 the Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. As the Operating System is absolutely free to use, you're able to modify both the core and any of the packages in the way you see fit. Furthermore, you will not be required to pay any license fees.
Debian in VPS Servers
There're several Operating Systems that we provide with our Linux VPS hosting service and Debian is one of them, so when you need a server with this Operating System, you'll be able to acquire one in under 1 hour. We also offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS to make sure that the VPS you will have will fully cover the system requirements of any web or offline application which you need to install on the server. Managing the content on the server can be performed in two ways, based on the choice you make on the order page. Without a Control Panel, you'll be able to do everything on your Debian-equipped server through Secure Shell, as you'll have root-level access, while using the Hepsia Control Panel, the root access will have certain restrictions, but you can do everything from your Internet browser using an intuitive web interface, even when you aren't very experienced. With the optional Managed Services package that we supply, we can also maintain your Debian OS updated weekly, saving you effort and time.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
Each and every dedicated server that we supply can be set up with Debian and we will test the software environment completely before we hand over the machine so as to ensure that it will perform properly. You will be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version throughout the signup process, so that the apps that you install can get the maximum out of your server. We can also keep your OS up-to-date if you add the optional Managed Services package to your plan. If you order your Debian-driven server without a web hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to do anything you want with the machine and you will have full root-level access, however you will have to be more experienced, as all the tasks will be performed through a Secure Shell console. When you get your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll get a web interface, through which you'll be able to manage domains, files, databases, etcetera, and this might be a better option when you aren't very experienced, but a specific app which you want to use requires Debian. You will have access to your Hepsia-equipped server via SSH too, yet the things which you are able to do will be limited.
