Debian is an Operating System that uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually installed on desktops, it's being used on an increasing number of web servers as well. The reason is that it's 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 risk-free Operating Systems to be found, due to the fact that security patches are released within days after a problem is found. This is possible since thousands of skilled 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 minutes to any question. Thus, you will get 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. As the Operating System is free to use, you are able to modify both the core and any of the packages in any way you see fit. Also, you won't need to pay any kind of license fees.
Debian in VPS Hosting
There are a few Operating Systems that we supply with our VPS hosting and Debian is one of them, therefore if you need a server with this Operating System, you will be able to get one in less than 1 hour. In addition, we offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS to make sure that the VPS you will have will completely cover the system requirements of any web or offline app that you need to install on the server. Controlling the content on the server can be done in two ways, based on the choice you make on the order page. With no Control Panel, you'll be able to do everything on your Debian-equipped server using Secure Shell, as you'll have root-level access, whereas using the Hepsia Control Panel, the root access will have some limitations, but you will be able to do everything through your Internet browser using a handy web interface, even if you aren't very experienced. When you use the optional Managed Services package that we offer, we will also keep your Debian OS up to date every week, saving you effort and time.
Debian in Dedicated Web Hosting
Each and every dedicated server that we provide can be installed with Debian and we'll test the program environment in detail before we hand over your machine in order to make sure that it'll perform flawlessly. You'll be able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version throughout the signup process, so that the applications which you install can 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. When you acquire your Debian-driven server without a website hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to do anything you want with the machine and you'll have full root-level access, however you'll have to be more skillful, because all the tasks will be performed through a Secure Shell console. When you get your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll receive a web interface, through which you can control domains, files, databases, etc, and this might be a better option in case you aren't very experienced, and a particular app which you would like to use requires Debian. You will have access to your Hepsia-equipped server via SSH too, however the things that you are able to do are limited.
