Debian is an Operating System which uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually set up on desktops, it is being used on an increasing 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 considered to be one of the most protected Operating Systems out there, because security patches are released within days after a problem is found. This is possible because thousands of well-trained developers are employed by the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, in addition, they provide 24/7 support by using special e-mail lists and respond within 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 several Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. As the Operating System is absolutely free to use, you'll be able to modify both the core as well as any of the packages in any way you see fit. In addition, you won't have to pay any kind of license fees.
Debian in VPS
You can acquire a Debian-powered virtual private server with all of our VPS solutions and you will be able to choose if the version which 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 match the system requirements of the apps that you wish to run and that the latter will work appropriately. Throughout the order process, you can also choose if the VPS will come with the Hepsia Control Panel or without Control Panel at all. The first option provides you with an easy to navigate graphical interface, through that you'll be able to control everything related to your web presence using only an Internet browser - files, email accounts, databases, etc. Without Control Panel at hand, you will have to do everything via a console, however you'll have full root access and you can set up any kind of software that may not be compatible with Hepsia. You can also add our optional Managed Services package, which includes weekly Operating System updates.
Debian in Dedicated Hosting
Each and every dedicated server that we provide can be installed with Debian and we'll test the program environment in depth before we hand over the machine so as to make sure that it will perform flawlessly. You're able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version throughout the registration process, so that the applications that you install can get the maximum out of your server. We can also maintain your Operating System up-to-date if you add the optional Managed Services package to your plan. When you get your Debian-driven server without a web hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to do anything you want with the machine and you'll have full root-level access, but you'll need to be more experienced, as all the tasks will be performed using a Secure Shell console. When you obtain your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll have a web interface, through which you'll be able to manage domains, files, databases, etc, and this might be the best option if you aren't very experienced, and a specific app that you want to use requires Debian. You can access your Hepsia-equipped server via SSH as well, but the things that you are able to do are restricted.
