Read why the Debian Linux distribution is so extremely well-liked and the reasons why server admins pick it for their machines.
Debian is an OS that uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually set up on desktop computers, it is being used on an increasing number of web servers as well. The reason is that it is 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 secure Operating Systems available, since security patches are released within days after an issue is found. 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, they also 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 one of the Linux releases with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. As the Operating System is 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. In addition, you won't have to pay any license fees.
Debian in VPS Web Hosting
You'll be able to select the Debian Operating System with each virtual private server
package that we provide. 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are among the options that you can find on the order page, which means that you can pick the one that is more suitable for the software that you'd like to set up and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be set up either without any Control Panel or with our custom Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you have more freedom, since you will have full root access and you will be able to make use of the advantages and the full functionality supplied by Debian. In the second case, the root access is limited, however you're able to control your online content through a web interface, not a console. If you don't have much time to command your Debian-powered server, or in case you do not have much experience, you're able to add the Managed Services upgrade to your plan and our administrators will take care of the regular OS updates.
Debian in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You can select the Debian OS for your new dedicated server
with a click on our registration page and based on your choice, we will set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS on the machine, to ensure that the software that you will install later will work in the right way. With a server devoid of Control Panel, you'll get Debian and the Apache web server software and you are able to manage everything using a console. A server that's ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel will include all the software that you may need for your sites. Although with the latter option the root access is restricted, you will be able to manage the server as if it were a shared web hosting account, thus you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you do not have previous expertise in this kind of website hosting service. If you purchase the Managed Services upgrade, we'll maintain your server and will update its OS on a weekly basis in order to ensure that you have the most current and most risk-free release.
