Debian is an Operating System which uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually set up on desktop computers, it is being used on more and more web servers as well. The reason is that it is very stable, so a server running it won't have to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be among the most safe Operating Systems in existence, since security patches are released within days after an issue is found. This is possible since thousands of qualified 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 by using special mailing lists and respond in 20 minutes to any question. Thus, you'll have top-level support directly from the developers who know their own platform in detail, 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 is completely free to use, you will be able to modify both the core and all the packages in the way you see fit. Furthermore, you won't be required to pay any license fees.
Debian in VPS Servers
You are able to get a Debian-powered VPS server with any of our VPS plans and you'll be able to choose if the version that will be installed during the server setup process will be 32-bit or 64-bit. Thus, you will guarantee that the software environment will match the system requirements of the applications that you want to run and that the latter will work efficiently. During the order process, you can also choose if the VPS will come with the Hepsia Control Panel or without any Control Panel at all. The first option will provide you with a handy graphical interface, via which you're able to manage everything related to your world wide web presence using only a web browser - files, email addresses, databases, and the like. Without Control Panel at hand, you'll have to make everything through a console, but you'll have full root access and you'll be able to install any kind of software that may not be compatible with Hepsia. You may also add our optional Managed Services package, which includes regular Operating System updates.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
Each dedicated server that we provide can be installed with Debian and we'll test the software environment completely before we hand over your machine so as to ensure that it will perform properly. You'll be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version during the sign-up process, so the apps that you install can get the maximum out of your server. We will also keep your Operating System up-to-date when you add the additional Managed Services package to your plan. If you obtain your Debian-driven server without a hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to do anything you want with your machine and you'll 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 order your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll have a web interface, through which you'll be able to control domains, files, databases, and many others, and this might be a better option in case you aren't very experienced, and a specific app that you need to use requires Debian. You have access to your Hepsia-equipped server through SSH too, yet the things which you can do are limited.
