Debian is an Operating System which uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually installed on desktop machines, it is being used on a growing number of web servers too. The reason is that it is very stable, so a server running it will not need to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being among the most safe Operating Systems nowadays, due to the fact that security patches are released within days after an issue is found. This is possible since thousands of well-trained developers work for the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, in addition, they provide 24/7 support via special e-mail lists and respond within 20 min to any kind of question. Thus, you will enjoy 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 one of several Linux releases with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. Since the Operating System costs nothing to use, you're able to modify both the core as well as all of the packages in any way you see fit. Furthermore, you won't need to pay any license fees.
Debian in VPS Servers
You are able to get a Debian-powered VPS server with any of our VPS packages and you will be able to choose if the version that will be installed during the server setup process will be 32-bit or 64-bit. This way, you'll ensure that the software environment will meet the requirements of the applications that you need to run and that the latter will work correctly. During the order process, you may also choose whether the VPS will come with the Hepsia Control Panel or with no Control Panel at all. The first option gives you an easy-to-use graphical interface, via which you can manage everything related to your online presence using only a web browser - files, e-mails, databases, and the like. Without Control Panel at hand, you'll have to do everything through a console, however you'll have full root access and you will be able to install any software that may not be compatible with Hepsia. You may also add our optional Managed Services package, which includes regular Operating System updates.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You can select the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server with a single click on our order page and based on your choice, we will set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS on your machine, so that the software that you'll install later will perform in the optimal way. With a server without Control Panel, you'll receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you are able to manage everything using a console. A server which is acquired with our Hepsia Control Panel will include all of the software which you'll need for your sites. Even though with the latter option the root access will be limited, you can control the server as if it were a shared web hosting account, which means that you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you don't have previous expertise in this kind of hosting service. If you order the Managed Services upgrade, we'll maintain your server and will update its OS weekly in order to make sure that you have the latest and most safe edition.
