Debian is an Operating System that uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually set up on desktops, 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 have to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being one of the most protected Operating Systems to be found, due to the fact that security patches are released within days after an issue is discovered. This is possible since thousands of skilled developers are employed by the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, they also provide 24/7 support through special mailing lists and respond in 20 min to any kind of question. In this light, you'll obtain 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 several Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. As the Operating System is completely free to use, you will be able to modify both the core as well as all the packages in the way you see fit. Also, you won't need to pay any license fees.

Debian in VPS Hosting

You can obtain a Debian-powered virtual private server with all of our VPS solutions and you'll be able to choose if the version which will be installed throughout the server setup process should be 32-bit or 64-bit. This way, you will guarantee that the software environment will meet the requirements of the apps that you need to run and that the latter will function appropriately. Throughout the order process, you may also choose whether the VPS will come with our Hepsia Control Panel or without Control Panel at all. The first option will give you an easy to navigate graphical interface, through that you're able to control everything related to your online presence using only an Internet browser - files, email addresses, databases, and the like. With no Control Panel at hand, you will need to do everything via a console, but you'll have full root access and you can install any software that may not be compatible with Hepsia. You can also add the optional Managed Services package, which includes regular Operating System updates.

Debian in Dedicated Web Hosting

Each dedicated server that we supply can be installed with Debian and we'll test the software environment in detail before we hand over your server so as to make sure that it'll perform flawlessly. You'll be able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version throughout the sign-up process, so that the apps which you set up can get the maximum out of your server. We will also maintain your OS up-to-date if you add the additional Managed Services package to your plan. If you get your Debian-driven server without a web hosting Control Panel, you can do anything you want with the machine and you will have full root-level access, however you will need to be more skillful, as all the tasks will be performed through a Secure Shell console. If you acquire your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you'll get a web interface, through which you'll be able to manage domains, files, databases, etcetera, and this might be the best option when you are not very experienced, and a specific application which you wish to use requires Debian. You will have access to your Hepsia-equipped server via SSH as well, yet the things which you can do will be restricted.
