See why a lot of system admins head straight for Debian when selecting an Operating System for their servers.
Debian is an Operating System which uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually installed on personal computers, it's being used on more and more web servers too. The reason is that it is very stable, so a server running it won't need to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being one of the most safe Operating Systems you can get, because security patches are released within days after an issue is discovered. This is possible because thousands of well-experienced developers are employed by 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 20 min to any kind of question. In this light, you will obtain 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 among the Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. As the Operating System is absolutely free to use, you are able to modify both the core as well as all of the packages in the way you see fit. Also, you will not need to pay any license fees.
Debian in VPS Hosting
You can get a Debian-powered virtual private server
with all of our VPS plans and you'll be able to choose if the version that will be installed during the server setup process should be 32-bit or 64-bit. This way, you will guarantee that the software environment will match the requirements of the applications that you need to run and that the latter will function appropriately. During the order process, you may also select whether the VPS will come with our Hepsia Control Panel or without any Control Panel at all. The first option will provide you with a handy graphical interface, through which you will be able to control everything related to your world wide web presence using only an Internet browser - files, e-mails, databases, etcetera. Without Control Panel at hand, you will need to do everything via a console, however you'll have full root access and you will be able to install any kind of software that may not be supported by Hepsia. In addition, you can add the optional Managed Services package, which includes weekly Operating System updates.
Debian in Dedicated Web Hosting
Each and every dedicated server
that we supply can be installed with Debian and we will test the program environment completely before we hand over your server so as to make sure that it will perform properly. You'll be able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release throughout the sign-up process, so that the applications which you set up can get the maximum out of your server. We will also maintain your OS up-to-date if you add the additional Managed Services package to your plan. In case you obtain your Debian-driven server without a hosting Control Panel, you can do anything you want with the machine and you will have full root-level access, but you will have to be more experienced, because all the tasks will be performed using a Secure Shell console. If you obtain your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will receive a web interface, via which you can control domains, files, databases, and many others, and this might be the best option if you are not very experienced, and a particular application which you would like to use requires Debian. You have access to your Hepsia-equipped server through SSH too, however the things which you are able to do will be restricted.
