See why lots of system administrators head straight for Debian each time selecting an OS for their servers.
Debian is an Operating System which uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually installed on desktops, it's being used on an increasing number of web servers as well. The reason is that it is really stable, so a server running it won't have to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be one of the most safe Operating Systems you can get, as security patches are released within days after a problem is found. This is possible since thousands of well-experienced developers are working 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 via special mailing lists and respond within 20 min to any kind of question. In this light, you'll enjoy 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 among the Linux releases with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. As the Operating System is absolutely free to use, you're able to modify both the core as well as any of the packages in any way you see fit. In addition, you will not need to pay any kind of license fees.
Debian in VPS Servers
If you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the VPS server
packages that we supply and pick this Operating System on the registration page. You can choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version, because we give you the option to select the right one, according to the software which you wish to install on your server once it's set up. If you are more tech-savvy, you may get a Debian-powered VPS without a Control Panel, so that you will have full root access and you are able to manage the content and the software via SSH. If you are less experienced, yet you'd like to use an app that requires Debian, you will be able to select our Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page and you'll be able to manage the entire server like a standard shared hosting account. You may also take full advantage of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we provide, because it includes once a week Operating System updates done by our admins, among many other useful things.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You're able to select the Debian OS for your new dedicated server
with a single click on our registration page and according to your choice, we'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS on your machine, to ensure that the software that you will install later will work in the best possible way. Picking a server without Control Panel, you'll get Debian and the Apache web server software and you're able to control everything through a console. A server that's ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel will come with all the software which you'll need for your web sites. Though with the latter option the root access is limited, you can control the server as if it were a shared hosting account, thus you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you do not have previous experience with this type of web hosting service. When you buy the Managed Services upgrade, we'll maintain your server and will update its OS on a weekly basis so as to ensure that you have the most current and most risk-free release.
