Debian is an Operating System which uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually installed on desktop machines, it is being used on more and more web servers too. The reason is that it's really 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 in existence, due to the fact that security patches are released within days after an issue is found. This is possible because thousands of well-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 by using special e-mail lists and respond in twenty minutes to any kind of question. Thus, you will receive an outstanding level of 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 - more than 30,000. Since the Operating System is free to use, you can modify both the core as well as all of the packages in the way you see fit. Furthermore, you will not be required to pay any kind of license fees.
Debian in VPS Hosting
If you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the virtual private server solutions that we offer and choose this Operating System on the order page. You will be able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version, as we give you the option to pick the more appropriate one, depending on the software that you wish to install on your server once it is set up. In case you're more tech-savvy, you can get a Debian-powered VPS without a Control Panel, and you'll have full root access and you will be able to manage the content and the software through SSH. If you are less experienced, but you'd like to use an application that requires Debian, you're able to choose our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel on the order page and you can manage the entire server like a standard shared hosting account. You may also reap the benefits of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we offer, because it features weekly Operating System updates performed by our admins, among many other useful things.
Debian in Dedicated Web Hosting
32-bit and 64-bit versions of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you are able to pick all of them with only a click for your new server, 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 set up on the server or if it should come with no Control Panel at all. The first option is made for less experienced users who need a Debian-powered server, but want to manage it like a shared web hosting account, while the second option is suitable for more experienced users who wish to have more control, since ‘no Control Panel' means only Debian and the Apache web server software, and no other software set up on the server at all. We will also save you time and effort with our Managed Services upgrade, as it comes with regular Operating System updates, so that you will have a safe and stable Debian installation.
