Debian is an OS which uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually installed on desktop machines, it's being used on an increasing number of web servers too. The reason is that it's 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 to choose from, since security patches are released within days after a problem is discovered. This is possible because thousands of skilled developers are working for the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, they also provide 24/7 support via special e-mail lists and reply in 20 minutes to any kind of question. Thus, you will enjoy 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 among the Linux releases with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. Since the Operating System is free to use, you will be able to modify both the core as well as all the packages in the way you see fit. In addition, you won't need to pay any license fees.
Debian in VPS Servers
You're able to choose the Debian Operating System with each VPS server package that we supply. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are among the options that you'll find on the order page, so you can pick the one that is more suitable for the software that you would 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'll have more freedom, due to the fact that you will have full root access and you'll be able to make use of the advantages and the full functionality offered by Debian. In the second case, the root access is restricted, but you can control your world wide web content through a web interface, not a console. In case you don't have a lot of time to control your Debian-powered server, or if you do not have a lot of experience, you are able to add the Managed Services upgrade to your package and our administrators will take care of the regular OS updates.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
Each and every dedicated server that we supply can be installed with Debian and we'll test the software environment thoroughly before we hand over your machine in order to make sure that it will perform perfectly. You are able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release during the sign-up process, so the apps that you set up will be able to get the maximum out of your server. We can also keep your OS up-to-date if you add the optional Managed Services package to your plan. When you acquire your Debian-driven server without a web hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to do anything you like with your machine and you will have full root-level access, however you will need to be more experienced, as all the tasks will be performed using a Secure Shell console. When you get your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll have a web interface, through which you will be able to manage domains, files, databases, etcetera, and this might be a better option in case you aren't very experienced, but a specific application which you need to use requires Debian. You have access to your Hepsia-equipped server via SSH too, yet the things that you'll be able to do will be limited.
