Debian is an OS which uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually installed on personal computers, it is being used on more and more web servers too. The reason is that it's very stable, so a server running it will not have to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being one of the most safe Operating Systems to choose from, as security patches are released within days after a problem is found. This is possible because thousands of well-experienced developers are working for 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 within 20 minutes to any question. Thus, you'll receive top-notch 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 - over 30,000. Since the Operating System is absolutely free to use, you're able to modify both the core and any of the packages in the way you see fit. Furthermore, you will not need to pay any kind of license fees.
Debian in VPS Web Hosting
If you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the virtual private server solutions that we provide and pick this Operating System on the registration page. You can choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version, as we give you the option to choose the more appropriate one, based on the software which you'd like to install on your server once it's up and running. When you are more tech-savvy, you can get a Debian-powered VPS with no Control Panel, so that you will have full root access and you are able to manage the content and the software via SSH. In case you are less experienced, yet you would like to use an application which requires Debian, you are able to choose the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel on the order page and you'll be able to manage the entire server like a standard shared hosting account. In addition, you can benefit from the optional Managed Services upgrade that we supply, since it comes with regular Operating System updates performed by our administrators, among various other useful things.
Debian in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You are able to select the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with just a mouse click on our registration page and according to your choice, we'll install the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS on your machine, to ensure that the software that you'll install later will perform in the right way. With a server without Control Panel, you will get Debian and the Apache web server software and you'll be able to control everything using a console. A server which is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel will come with all of the software that you may need for your web sites. Although with the latter option the root access will be restricted, you can manage the server as if it were a shared hosting account, thus you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you have no previous expertise in this type of hosting service. When you purchase the Managed Services upgrade, we will maintain your server and will update its OS every week to ensure that you have the most current and most safe version.
