See why a lot of system administrators head straight for Debian when selecting an Operating System for their servers.
Debian is an OS which uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually installed on desktops, it is being used on more and more web servers too. The reason is that it's very 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 to be found, as security patches are released within days after an issue is discovered. This is possible because thousands of skilled developers are working for 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 e-mail lists and respond in 20 min to any kind of question. In this light, you'll enjoy an outstanding level of 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 - more than 30,000. Since the Operating System is absolutely free to use, you'll be able to modify both the core as well as all of the packages in any way you see fit. Furthermore, you will not be required to pay any kind of license fees.
Debian in VPS Hosting
You can pick the Debian Operating System with each and every virtual private server
plan that we supply. 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are among the options that you can find on the order page, so you can pick the one that is more suitable for the software that you need to install and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be installed either without any Control Panel or with our tailor-made Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you'll have more freedom, considering that you will have full root access and you are able to take advantage of the advantages and the full functionality offered by Debian. In the second case, the root access is limited, however you are able to manage your web content through a web interface, not a console. In case you don't have a lot of time to take care of your Debian-powered server, or if you don't have a lot of experience, you could add the Managed Services upgrade to your package and our administrators will handle the weekly OS updates.
Debian in Dedicated Web Hosting
32-bit and 64-bit releases of Debian are available on our dedicated server
order page and you will be able to select all of them with only a click for your brand new server, based on what software environment the apps which you wish to use require for the best performance. You can also select whether our Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on the server or whether it should come without a Control Panel at all. The first option is suitable for less experienced users who want a Debian-powered server, yet wish to manage it like a shared web hosting account, while the second option is good for more advanced users who need to have more control, because ‘no Control Panel' stands for only Debian and the Apache web server software, but no other software set up on the server whatsoever. We can also save you time and effort with the Managed Services upgrade, as it comes with regular Operating System updates, so that you will have a safe and stable Debian installation.
