Debian is an OS that uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually set up on desktop computers, it's being used on an increasing number of web servers too. The reason is that it's very 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 out there, due to the fact that security patches are released within days after a problem is discovered. This is possible because thousands of well-experienced developers are part of the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, they also provide 24/7 support by using special mailing lists and reply within twenty minutes to any question. Thus, you'll receive 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 several Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. As the Operating System costs nothing to use, you're able to modify both the core and all of the packages in any way you see fit. Furthermore, you won't be required to pay any license fees.
Debian in VPS Hosting
If you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the virtual private server
plans that we provide and pick this Operating System on the order page. You'll be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version, because we give you the option to select the right one, based on the software that you wish to install on your server once it's up and running. In case you're more tech-savvy, you can get a Debian-powered VPS without a Control Panel, so that you will have full root access and you are able to manage the content and the software using SSH. If you are less experienced, but you'd like to use software which requires Debian, you are able to choose our Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page and you'll be able to manage the whole server like a standard shared hosting account. In addition, you can take full advantage of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we supply, as it features once a week Operating System updates done by our administrators, among various other useful things.
Debian in Dedicated Web Hosting
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 only a mouse click for your new machine, depending on what software environment the apps which you would like to use require for optimal performance. You may also choose if our Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on the server or whether it should come without Control Panel at all. The first option is made for less experienced users who want a Debian-powered server, but would like to control it like a shared hosting account, whereas the second option is good for more experienced users who wish to have more control, because ‘no Control Panel' means only Debian and the Apache web server software, but no other software set up on the server whatsoever. We can also save you time and effort with our Managed Services upgrade, because it includes routine Operating System updates, so that you'll have a safe and stable Debian installation.
