Learn why the Debian Linux distribution is really so famous and the reasons why server admins pick it for their servers.
Debian is an Operating System which uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually set up on desktop computers, it is being used on a growing number of web servers as well. 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 safe Operating Systems to choose from, since security patches are released within days after an issue is discovered. This is possible because thousands of qualified developers are working for the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, but they also provide 24/7 support through special e-mail lists and reply within 20 minutes to any question. Thus, you'll obtain an outstanding level of 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 releases with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. Since the Operating System is free to use, you're able to modify both the core as well as any of the packages in the way you see fit. In addition, you won't have to pay any kind of license fees.
Debian in VPS Web Hosting
There're several Operating Systems that we provide with our Linux VPS web hosting packages
and Debian is one of them, so when you'd like to have a server with this Operating System, you'll be able to acquire one in under an hour. We also offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS to ensure that the VPS you'll get will fully cover the system requirements of any web or offline app that you would like to install on the server. Controlling the content on the server can be done in two ways, depending on the choice you make on the order page. Without a Control Panel, you are able to do everything on your Debian-equipped server through Secure Shell, as you'll have root-level access, while with the Hepsia Control Panel, the root access will have certain restrictions, but you will be able to do everything from your web browser using an intuitive web interface, even when you aren't very experienced. Using the optional Managed Services package which we supply, we'll also keep your Debian OS updated on a weekly basis, saving you time and effort.
Debian in Dedicated Servers Hosting
32-bit and 64-bit releases of Debian are available on our dedicated server
order page and you are able to choose any of them with only a click for your brand new server, depending on what software environment the applications that you would like to use require for top notch performance. You may also choose whether our Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on the server or if it should come without Control Panel at all. The first option is made for inexperienced users who want a Debian-powered server, yet want to control it like a shared hosting account, whereas the second option is suitable for more experienced users who want to have more control, as ‘no Control Panel' stands for only Debian and the Apache web server software, and no other software installed on the server whatsoever. We will also save your time and effort with our Managed Services upgrade, because it includes routine Operating System updates, to ensure that you'll have a secure and stable Debian installation.
