Debian is an Operating System that uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually installed on desktop machines, it's being used on an increasing number of web servers too. The reason is that it is very stable, so a server running it won't have to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being among the most risk-free Operating Systems you can get, since security patches are released within days after a problem is discovered. This is possible since thousands of well-trained 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 via special mailing lists and respond in 20 minutes to any kind of question. In this light, you'll have 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 one of several Linux releases with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. As the Operating System is free to use, you're able to modify both the core as well as any of the packages in the way you see fit. Also, you will not need to pay any kind of license fees.

Debian in VPS Servers

There are a few Operating Systems that we supply with our Linux VPS hosting plans and Debian is among them, so when you need a server with this Operating System, you can obtain one in less than one hour. We also offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS to make sure that the VPS you'll get will completely cover the system requirements of any kind of web or offline application that you intend to install on the server. Managing the content on the server can be done in two ways, depending on the choice you make on the order page. Without a Control Panel, you will be able to do everything on your Debian-equipped server through Secure Shell, as you'll have root-level access, while with the Hepsia Control Panel, the root access will have certain limitations, but you will be able to do everything through your browser using a handy web interface, even if you aren't very experienced. Using the optional Managed Services package which we supply, we can also keep your Debian OS updated weekly, saving you time and effort.

Debian in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that we provide can be installed with Debian and we'll test the program environment in depth before we hand over the machine to ensure that it will perform perfectly. You're able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release during the signup process, so the applications 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 when you add the optional Managed Services package to your plan. When you acquire your Debian-driven server without a web hosting Control Panel, you can do anything you like with your machine and you will have full root-level access, but you will need to be more experienced, as all of the tasks will be performed using a Secure Shell console. When you get your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll get a web interface, through which you can control domains, files, databases, etc, and this might be a better option if you are not very experienced, but a particular app that you would like to use requires Debian. You have access to your Hepsia-equipped server via SSH as well, however the things that you'll be able to do are limited.
