Debian is an Operating System that uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually installed on desktop machines, it's being used on a growing number of web servers as well. The reason is that it is really stable, so a server running it will not need to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being among the most protected Operating Systems out there, since security patches are released within days after a problem is discovered. This is possible since thousands of experienced developers are employed by 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 e-mail lists and respond in 20 min to any kind of question. Thus, you will enjoy 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 among the Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. Since the Operating System is completely free to use, you're 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 Web Hosting
You will be able to pick the Debian Operating System with each virtual private server
plan that we provide. 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options that you will find on the order page, which means that you can select the one that will be more suitable for the software that you need to set up and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be set up either with no Control Panel or with our custom Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you have more freedom, because you will have full root access and you'll be able to take advantage of the advantages and the full functionality provided by Debian. In the second case, the root access is restricted, but you are able to control your website content via a web interface, not a console. If you do not have a lot of time to maintain your Debian-powered server, or if you do not have much experience, you could add the Managed Services upgrade to your package and our admins will take care of the weekly OS updates.
Debian in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Each and every dedicated server
that we provide can be set up with Debian and we'll test the software environment thoroughly before we hand over your server in order to ensure that it'll perform appropriately. You are able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version throughout the sign-up process, so that the apps which you set up will be able to get the maximum out of your server. We will also maintain your OS up-to-date when you add the optional Managed Services package to your plan. If you acquire your Debian-driven server without a hosting Control Panel, you will be able to do anything you want with your machine and you'll have full root-level access, but you'll need to be more skillful, because all the tasks will be performed using a Secure Shell console. If you obtain your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll have a web interface, through which you can manage domains, files, databases, and many others, and this might be a better option if you aren't very experienced, and a certain app which you wish to use requires Debian. You have access to your Hepsia-equipped server through SSH as well, but the things that you will be able to do are restricted.
