Debian is an OS that uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually set up on desktop computers, it's being used on an increasing number of web servers too. The reason is that it is very stable, so a server running it will not have to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be among the most secure Operating Systems you can get, due to the fact that security patches are released within days after an issue is found. This is possible since thousands of well-trained developers are part of the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, in addition, they provide 24/7 support via special mailing lists and respond in 20 minutes to any question. In this light, you will have 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 one of the Linux releases with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. As the Operating System is completely free to use, you are able to modify both the core as well as any of the packages in any way you see fit. Also, you won't be required to pay any kind of license fees.
Debian in VPS Servers
You can select the Debian Operating System with each VPS server solution that we provide. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of 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 install and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be set up either devoid of Control Panel or with our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you have more freedom, due to the fact that you will have full root access and you are able to take advantage of the advantages and the full functionality provided by Debian. In the second case, the root access is restricted, yet you can manage your world wide web content via a web interface, not a console. If you do not have much time to command your Debian-powered server, or if you don't have a lot of experience, you can add the Managed Services upgrade to your package and our administrators will handle the regular OS updates.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
32-bit and 64-bit editions of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you'll be able to choose any of them with only a mouse click for your new server, based on what software environment the apps that you want to use require for optimal performance. You may also choose whether our Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on the server or whether it should come without a Control Panel at all. The first option is made for less experienced users who want a Debian-powered server, but want to control it like a shared website hosting account, whereas the second option is good for more experienced users who want to have more control, since ‘no Control Panel' means only Debian and the Apache web server software, and no other software set up on the server whatsoever. We'll also save your time and effort with the Managed Services upgrade, since it includes routine Operating System updates, so that you will have a safe and stable Debian installation.
