Debian is an OS which uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually installed on desktop computers, it is being used on more and more web servers too. The reason is that it is really stable, so a server running it will not have to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being one of the most secure Operating Systems available, since security patches are released within days after an issue is discovered. This is possible since thousands of well-experienced developers are employed by the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, but they also provide 24/7 support by using special e-mail lists and reply in twenty minutes to any question. Thus, you will enjoy top-level 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 releases with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. As the Operating System costs nothing to use, you can modify both the core and all of the packages in the way you see fit. Furthermore, you will not be required to pay any kind of license fees.
Debian in VPS Servers
You will be able to obtain a Debian-powered VPS server with any of our VPS packages and you will be able to choose if the version that will be installed during the server setup process should be 32-bit or 64-bit. In this way, you'll ensure that the software environment will meet the requirements of the applications which you need to run and that the latter will run efficiently. During the order process, you can also select if the VPS will come with our Hepsia Control Panel or without Control Panel at all. The first option gives you an easy to navigate graphical interface, through that you are able to manage everything related to your web presence using only a web browser - files, e-mails, databases, etc. Without Control Panel at hand, you will have to do everything via a console, yet you'll have full root access and you will be able to install any software that may not be compatible with Hepsia. In addition, you can add the optional Managed Services package, which includes regular Operating System updates.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
32-bit and 64-bit editions of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you will be able to pick all of them with only a mouse click for your brand new server, depending on what software environment the applications which you plan to use require for optimal performance. You can also select if our Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on the server or whether it should come without any Control Panel at all. The first option is made for less experienced users who want a Debian-powered server, yet want to control it like a shared website hosting account, whereas the second option is suitable for more advanced users who would like to have more control, since ‘no Control Panel' means only Debian and the Apache web server software, but no other software installed on the server whatsoever. We'll also save your time and effort with the Managed Services upgrade, as it features routine Operating System updates, to ensure that you will have a safe and stable Debian installation.
