Debian is an Operating System that uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually installed on personal computers, it is 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 need to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being one of the most protected Operating Systems out there, because security patches are released within days after an issue is discovered. This is possible since thousands of experienced developers are part of the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, but they also provide 24/7 support by using special e-mail lists and respond within 20 minutes to any kind of question. In this light, you will obtain 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 one of the Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. As the Operating System costs nothing to use, you're able to modify both the core and any of the packages in the way you see fit. Furthermore, you won't be required to pay any license fees.
Debian in VPS Hosting
You will be able to get a Debian-powered virtual private server with all of our VPS plans and you'll be able to choose if the version that will be installed throughout the server setup process will be 32-bit or 64-bit. Thus, you'll guarantee that the software environment will meet the system requirements of the apps which you wish to run and that the latter will run effectively. Throughout the order process, you may also select if the VPS will come with our Hepsia Control Panel or without any Control Panel at all. The first option provides you with a handy graphical interface, via that you can control everything related to your online presence using only an Internet browser - files, email addresses, databases, and so on. With no Control Panel at hand, you'll need to make everything via a console, however you'll have full root access and you can set up any kind of software that may not be supported by Hepsia. You may also add our optional Managed Services package, which includes regular Operating System updates.
Debian in Dedicated Web Hosting
You'll be able to select the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server with a mouse click on our registration page and depending on your choice, we will set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS on your machine, so that the software that you will install later will work in the best possible way. Selecting a server devoid of Control Panel, you will receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you will be able to control everything using a console. A server that is ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel will feature all the software which you'll need for your websites. Though with the latter option the root access will be limited, you can control the server as if it were a shared hosting account, which means that 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 order our Managed Services upgrade, we will maintain your server and will update its OS every week in order to make sure that you have the most recent and most secure release.
