Debian is an Operating System which uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually set up on desktop machines, 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 will not need to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be among the most risk-free Operating Systems available, due to the fact that security patches are released within days after a problem is discovered. This is possible since 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 via special e-mail lists and respond within 20 minutes to any kind of question. In this light, you'll receive 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 distributions 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 and any of the packages in any way you see fit. Furthermore, you won't be required to pay any kind of license fees.

Debian in VPS Web Hosting

When you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the virtual private server plans that we provide and select this Operating System on the order page. You'll be able to 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 that you wish to install on your server once it is up and running. If you're more tech-savvy, you may get a Debian-powered VPS with no Control Panel, so you'll have full root access and you'll be able to control the content and the software via SSH. In case you are less experienced, but you would like to use an app which requires Debian, you are able to pick the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel on the order page and you can manage the entire server like a standard shared hosting account. You may also benefit from the optional Managed Services upgrade that we supply, since it features regular Operating System updates done by our admins, among various other useful things.

Debian in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Each dedicated server that we offer can be set up with Debian and we will test the software environment in detail before we hand over your server to ensure that it will perform properly. You are able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release throughout the sign-up process, so that the applications which you set up will be able to get the maximum out of your server. We will also maintain your OS up-to-date if you add the optional Managed Services package to your plan. In case you acquire your Debian-driven server without a web 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 will need to be more skillful, as all of the tasks will be performed using a Secure Shell console. When you obtain your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll have a web interface, through which you will be able to manage domains, files, databases, etc, and this might be a better option in case you are not very experienced, and a certain application which you would like to use requires Debian. You can access your Hepsia-equipped server through SSH too, however the things which you can do will be limited.
