Debian is an OS which uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually set up on personal computers, it is being used on an increasing number of web servers too. The reason is that it is really stable, so a server running it won't have to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be one of the most secure Operating Systems in existence, because security patches are released within days after a problem is discovered. 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 mailing lists and respond in 20 minutes to any question. In this light, you will have top-notch 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. As the Operating System costs nothing to use, you are able to modify both the core as well as all of the packages in any way you see fit. Furthermore, you won't have to pay any kind of license fees.
Debian in VPS Web Hosting
You will be able to pick the Debian Operating System with each virtual private server solution that we offer. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are among the options that you can find on the order page, so you can pick the one that is more suitable for the software that you'd like to set up and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be installed either with no Control Panel or with our tailor-made Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you have more freedom, since you will have full root access and you are able to take advantage of the advantages and the full functionality supplied by Debian. In the second case, the root access will be restricted, however you're able to manage your web content through a web interface, not a console. If you don't have much time to command your Debian-powered server, or if you don't have substantial experience, you are able to add the Managed Services upgrade to your plan and our administrators will handle the weekly OS updates.
Debian in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Each and every dedicated server that we supply can be set up with Debian and we will test the program environment thoroughly before we hand over your machine so as to make sure that it'll perform perfectly. You'll be able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release throughout the sign-up process, so the apps which you set up will be able to get the maximum out of your server. We can also maintain your Operating System 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 will be able to do anything you want with the machine and you'll have full root-level access, however you'll need to be more skillful, because all the tasks will be performed using a Secure Shell console. If you order your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you'll get a web interface, via which you will be able to control domains, files, databases, etcetera, and this might be a better option when you are not very experienced, but a specific application which you wish to use requires Debian. You have access to your Hepsia-equipped server via SSH too, but the things which you're able to do will be restricted.
