Debian is an OS that uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually set up on personal computers, it is being used on more and more web servers as well. The reason is that it's 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 protected Operating Systems available, because security patches are released within days after a problem is found. This is possible since thousands of qualified developers are part of 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 reply in 20 minutes to any kind of question. Thus, you will have 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 can modify both the core and all the packages in the way you see fit. Furthermore, you will not have to pay any license fees.
Debian in VPS Servers
You can pick the Debian Operating System with each VPS server
plan that we offer. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of the options that you will find on the order page, which means that you can pick the one that will be more suitable for the software that you would like to install and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be installed either with no Control Panel or with our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you'll have more freedom, because you will have full root access and you can make use of the advantages and the full functionality provided by Debian. In the second case, the root access is restricted, yet you'll be able to control your web content through a web interface, not a console. In case you don't have much time to maintain your Debian-powered server, or if you don't have a lot of experience, you can add the Managed Services upgrade to your plan and our administrators will take care of the weekly OS updates.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You can select the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server
with a click on our registration page and according to your choice, we'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS on the machine, so that the software that you will install later will work in the best way. Selecting a server devoid of Control Panel, you will get Debian and the Apache web server software and you'll be able to manage everything through a console. A server that's ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel will come with all the software which you will need for your web sites. Although with the latter option the root access will be restricted, you will be able to manage the server as if it were a shared web hosting account, so that you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you do not have previous expertise in this kind of web hosting service. If you purchase our Managed Services upgrade, we will maintain your server and will update its OS on a weekly basis so as to make sure that you have the latest and most risk-free release.
