Debian is an OS that uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually set up on personal computers, it is being used on a growing number of web servers as well. The reason is that it is really stable, so a server running it won't need to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being one of the most protected Operating Systems available, since security patches are released within days after a problem is discovered. This is possible because thousands of experienced developers are working for the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, they also provide 24/7 support via special mailing lists and respond within twenty minutes to any question. In this light, you'll receive 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 - over 30,000. Since the Operating System costs nothing to use, you'll be able to modify both the core as well as all the packages in the way you see fit. In addition, you will not have to pay any kind of license fees.
Debian in VPS Servers
You are able to get a Debian-powered VPS server with any of our VPS plans and you can choose if the version which will be installed throughout the server setup process should be 32-bit or 64-bit. This way, you can make sure that the software environment will match the system requirements of the apps that you wish to run and that the latter will run appropriately. During the order process, you can also choose whether the VPS will come with our Hepsia Control Panel or with no Control Panel at all. The first option gives you a handy graphical interface, through which you are able to control everything related to your web presence using only a web browser - files, e-mail accounts, databases, etcetera. Without a Control Panel at hand, you'll need to make everything through a console, yet you will have full root access and you can set up any software that may not be compatible with Hepsia. You may also add our optional Managed Services package, which includes weekly Operating System updates.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
32-bit and 64-bit editions of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you'll be able to select any of them with only a click for your brand new machine, depending on what software environment the apps that you would like to use require for the best performance. You can also choose if our Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on the server or whether it should come without Control Panel at all. The first option is suitable for inexperienced users who want a Debian-powered server, but wish to control it like a shared web hosting account, while the second option is good for more experienced users who wish to have more control, since ‘no Control Panel' stands for only Debian and the Apache web server software, but no other software set up on the server whatsoever. We will also save you time and effort with our Managed Services upgrade, as it features regular Operating System updates, to ensure that you will have a safe and stable Debian installation.
