Debian is an Operating System that uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually set up on desktop machines, it's being used on an increasing number of web servers as well. The reason is that it is very stable, so a server running it will not need to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being one of the most safe Operating Systems out there, since security patches are released within days after an issue is discovered. This is possible because 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 through special e-mail lists and reply within 20 minutes to any question. Thus, you'll obtain top-level support directly from the developers who know their own platform in detail, and not from a third-party support team. Debian is also one of the Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. As the Operating System costs nothing to use, you can modify both the core and all the packages in any way you see fit. In addition, you will not have to pay any kind of license fees.

Debian in VPS Servers

There are several Operating Systems that we provide with our VPS web hosting service and Debian is one of them, which means that when you need a server with this OS, you can acquire one in under one hour. In addition, we offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS to make sure that the VPS you will obtain will completely cover the system requirements of any kind of web or offline app which you want to install on the server. Managing the content on the server can be performed in two ways, depending on the choice you make on the order page. Without a Control Panel, you are able to do everything on your Debian-equipped server using Secure Shell, as you'll have root-level access, while through the Hepsia Control Panel, the root access will have certain restrictions, but you can do everything from your Internet browser using a user-friendly web interface, even when you are not very experienced. Using the optional Managed Services package that we supply, we will also keep your Debian OS up to date on a weekly basis, saving you time and effort.

Debian in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that we provide can be set up with Debian and we'll test the software environment in detail before we hand over your server in order to ensure that it will perform appropriately. You will be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release during the registration process, so the applications which you install can get the maximum out of your server. We will also keep your Operating System 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 the machine and you will have full root-level access, yet you'll have to be more skillful, as all the tasks will be performed through a Secure Shell console. If you acquire your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll get a web interface, via which you'll be able to manage domains, files, databases, etc, and this might be the best option when you aren't very experienced, and a specific app that you'd like to use requires Debian. You will have access to your Hepsia-equipped server through SSH too, yet the things which you are able to do are restricted.
