Discover why the Debian Linux distribution is so extremely popular and why many server admins choose it for their machines.
Debian is an Operating System that 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 too. The reason is that it is very stable, so a server running it won't have to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being one of the most safe Operating Systems to choose from, due to the fact that security patches are released within days after an issue is discovered. This is possible because thousands of 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 via special mailing lists and respond within 20 minutes to any question. In this light, you will receive 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 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 as well as all of the packages in the way you see fit. Also, you will not be required to pay any license fees.
Debian in VPS Web Hosting
If you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the virtual private server
solutions that we provide and choose this Operating System on the order page. You will be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release, since we give you the option to choose the more appropriate one, according to the software which you wish to install on your server once it's up and running. If you're more tech-savvy, you can get a Debian-powered VPS without a Control Panel, so you will have full root access and you're able to control the content and the software via SSH. If you are less experienced, yet you would like to use an application that requires Debian, you will be able to select our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel on the order page and you can manage the whole server like a standard shared hosting account. In addition, you can take full advantage of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we supply, as it features weekly Operating System updates performed by our administrators, among many other useful things.
Debian in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Each and every dedicated server
that we provide can be installed with Debian and we will test the software environment in detail before we hand over your server to ensure that it'll perform properly. You are able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version throughout the signup process, so the apps which you set up can get the maximum out of your server. We will also maintain your OS up-to-date when you add the additional Managed Services package to your plan. When you order your Debian-driven server without a hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to do anything you like with your machine and you'll have full root-level access, however you will need to be more skillful, as all the tasks will be performed using a Secure Shell console. When you acquire your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll have a web interface, via which you can control domains, files, databases, etc, and this might be a better option when you aren't very experienced, and a certain app that you would like to use requires Debian. You'll have access to your Hepsia-equipped server through SSH as well, however the things which you're able to do will be restricted.
