Debian is an OS that uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually installed on desktop machines, 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 will not need to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be one of the most protected Operating Systems available, because security patches are released within days after an issue is discovered. This is possible because thousands of experienced developers are part of 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 mailing lists and respond within 20 min to any question. Thus, you will receive top-level 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 several Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. Since the Operating System costs nothing to use, you'll be able to modify both the core and any of the packages in the way you see fit. In addition, you won't be required to pay any license fees.
Debian in VPS Servers
You will be able to acquire a Debian-powered VPS server with all of our VPS plans and you'll be able to choose if the version that will be installed throughout the server setup process will be 32-bit or 64-bit. This way, you'll ensure that the software environment will match the system requirements of the apps which you want to run and that the latter will function appropriately. Throughout the order process, you can also select whether the VPS will come with our Hepsia Control Panel or without a Control Panel at all. The first option provides you with a handy graphical interface, through that you will be able to manage everything related to your world wide web presence using only a web browser - files, e-mail accounts, databases, etc. Without Control Panel at hand, you will have to do everything via a console, however you'll have full root access and you can set up any kind of software that may not be compatible with Hepsia. In addition, you can add the optional Managed Services package, which includes weekly Operating System updates.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
Each and every dedicated server that we provide can be installed with Debian and we will test the software environment completely before we hand over the machine in order to make sure that it will perform properly. You'll be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release during the signup process, so the apps that you install will be able to get the maximum out of your server. We can also keep your Operating System up-to-date if you add the additional Managed Services package to your plan. When you obtain your Debian-driven server without a website hosting Control Panel, you will be able to do anything you want with the machine and you'll have full root-level access, but you'll have to be more experienced, because all of the tasks will be performed through a Secure Shell console. If you get your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll get a web interface, via which you will be able to manage domains, files, databases, etcetera, and this might be the best option if you are not very experienced, but a particular app which you intend to use requires Debian. You can access your Hepsia-equipped server through SSH as well, but the things which you are able to do are limited.
