Debian is an Operating System that uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually installed on desktop computers, it's being used on a growing number of web servers as well. The reason is that it's really stable, so a server running it will not need to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being one of the most risk-free Operating Systems you can get, since security patches are released within days after an issue is discovered. This is possible because thousands of skilled 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 through special e-mail lists and respond within 20 minutes to any kind of question. In this light, 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 one of the Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. Since the Operating System costs nothing to use, you're able to modify both the core and all of the packages in the way you see fit. Furthermore, you won't need to pay any license fees.

Debian in VPS Web Hosting

You are able to acquire a Debian-powered virtual private server with any of our VPS packages and you'll be able to choose if the version which will be installed throughout the server setup process will be 32-bit or 64-bit. This way, you'll guarantee that the software environment will match the requirements of the apps that you wish to run and that the latter will work effectively. During the order process, you may also decide whether the VPS will come with our Hepsia Control Panel or without a Control Panel at all. The first option provides you with an easy-to-use graphical interface, via which you are able to manage everything related to your world wide web presence using only a web browser - files, e-mails, databases, etc. Without Control Panel at hand, you will have to make everything through a console, however you'll have full root access and you will be able to set up any kind of software that may not be supported by Hepsia. You can also add our optional Managed Services package, which includes weekly Operating System updates.

Debian in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Each and every dedicated server that we offer can be set up with Debian and we'll test the program environment in detail before we hand over the machine to ensure that it will perform flawlessly. You're able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release during the signup process, so that the apps which you install can get the maximum out of your server. We will also keep your Operating System up-to-date if you add the optional Managed Services package to your plan. In case you obtain 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, however you'll have to be more skillful, because all the tasks will be performed using a Secure Shell console. If you acquire your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will receive a web interface, via which you'll be able to control domains, files, databases, etc, and this might be a better option in case you are not very experienced, but a particular app that you'd like to use requires Debian. You will have access to your Hepsia-equipped server through SSH as well, however the things which you can do will be limited.
