Debian is an Operating System that uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually installed on desktop computers, 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 will not have to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being one of the most safe Operating Systems nowadays, because security patches are released within days after an issue is found. 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, they also provide 24/7 support through special mailing lists and respond within twenty minutes to any question. In this light, you will enjoy 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 releases with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. Since the Operating System is completely free to use, you will be able to modify both the core and any of the packages in the way you see fit. In addition, you will not need to pay any license fees.
Debian in VPS Servers
You'll be able to pick the Debian Operating System with each VPS server
package that we provide. 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are among the options that you'll find on the order page, so you can select the one that will be more suitable for the software that you would like to install and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be installed either without Control Panel or with our in-house made Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you'll have more freedom, considering that you will have full root access and you can take advantage of the advantages and the full functionality supplied by Debian. In the second case, the root access is restricted, yet you'll be able to manage your web content through a web interface, not a console. In case you do not have much time to control your Debian-powered server, or in case you do not have substantial experience, you're able to add the Managed Services upgrade to your package and our administrators will handle the regular OS updates.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You can pick the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server
with a single click on our order page and based on your choice, we'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS on your machine, to ensure that the software that you'll install later will perform in the optimal way. Choosing a server without any Control Panel, you'll get Debian and the Apache web server software and you'll be able to control everything using a console. A server which is ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel will come with all the software which you will need for your websites. Although with the latter option the root access will be restricted, you're able to control the server as if it were a shared website hosting account, so you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you do not have previous experience with this type of website hosting service. When you get our Managed Services upgrade, we will maintain your server and will update its OS on a weekly basis to ensure that you have the most current and most secure edition.
