Debian is an Operating System that uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually set up on desktop machines, it's being used on a growing number of web servers as well. The reason is that it is very stable, so a server running it will not have to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being among the most secure Operating Systems to be found, due to the fact that security patches are released within days after a problem is discovered. This is possible since thousands of skilled developers are part of 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 respond within twenty minutes to any question. Thus, you will enjoy top-notch 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 the Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. As the Operating System costs nothing to use, you are able to modify both the core as well as all the packages in any way you see fit. Also, you will not be required to pay any kind of license fees.
Debian in VPS Servers
You'll be able to pick the Debian Operating System with each VPS server plan that we provide. 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options that you'll find on the order page, so you can select the one that is more suitable for the software that you need to install and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be set up either without Control Panel or with our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you have more freedom, considering that you will have full root access and you're able to take advantage of the advantages and the full functionality offered by Debian. In the second case, the root access will be limited, but you'll be able to manage your website content through a web interface, not a console. If you do not have much time to command your Debian-powered server, or if you do not have much experience, you're able to add the Managed Services upgrade to your package and our administrators will take care of the weekly OS updates.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
With each of our Linux dedicated servers, you can enjoy a web hosting powerhouse running Debian right away. This Operating System is one of the options that you'll get throughout the registration process and you will be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit version, depending on what software environment your applications need. If you need to have full root access, you will be able to acquire a server without a Control Panel, so you will have more freedom when it comes to what you can do with your machine via SSH. In case you have less experience, however you need Debian for a certain computer program, you'll be able to buy the server with our Hepsia Control Panel. Regardless that the root access is more limited, you can do anything related to your web content without difficulty employing an easy to use graphical interface. If you add the optional Managed Services bundle to your dedicated server package, our system administrators will deal with the weekly OS updates. They'll perform some other useful tasks for you too.
