Discover why lots of system admins head straight for Debian whenever choosing an OS for their servers.
Debian is an Operating System that uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually installed on desktop computers, it's being used on more and more web servers as well. The reason is that it is very stable, so a server running it won't have to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be one of the most risk-free Operating Systems to be found, due to the fact that security patches are released within days after an issue is found. This is possible because thousands of well-experienced developers work for the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, but they also provide 24/7 support via special e-mail lists and respond in twenty minutes to any question. In this light, 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 several Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. Since the Operating System is free to use, you'll be able to modify both the core and all of the packages in the way you see fit. Also, you won't have to pay any kind of license fees.
Debian in VPS Servers
When you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the VPS server
packages that we supply and pick this Operating System on the registration page. You'll be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version, because we give you the option to pick the more appropriate one, based on the software which you would like to install on your server once it is up and running. When you're more tech-savvy, you may get a Debian-powered VPS with no Control Panel, so that you will have full root access and you're able to control the content and the software via SSH. In case you are less experienced, yet you'd like to use an application that requires Debian, you can pick our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel on the order page and you can manage the whole server like a standard shared web hosting account. You may also take full advantage of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we provide, since it comes with weekly Operating System updates performed by our administrators, among many other useful things.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
32-bit and 64-bit editions of Debian are available on our dedicated server
order page and you are able to pick any of them with just a single click for your new server, based on what software environment the apps which you plan to use require for the best performance. You can also select whether our Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on the server or whether it should come without a Control Panel at all. The first option is made for inexperienced users who want a Debian-powered server, but wish to manage it like a shared website hosting account, whereas the second option is suitable for more advanced users who wish to have more control, because ‘no Control Panel' means only Debian and the Apache web server software, and no other software set up on the server whatsoever. We will also save your time and effort with the Managed Services upgrade, because it comes with regular Operating System updates, so that you will have a secure and stable Debian installation.
