To what does the Debian OS owe its reputation? What has made it the Linux distribution of choice for countless server admins?
Debian is an OS which uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually set up on personal computers, it's being used on a growing number of web servers as well. The reason is that it is really stable, so a server running it won't have to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be among the most risk-free Operating Systems available, as security patches are released within days after an issue is found. This is possible because thousands of skilled developers work for 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 20 min to any kind of question. In this light, you will receive an outstanding level of 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 the Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. As the Operating System costs nothing to use, you are able to modify both the core as well as all the packages in any way you see fit. In addition, you will not have to pay any kind of license fees.
Debian in VPS Servers
There are several Operating Systems that we offer with our VPS servers
and Debian is one of them, so when you'd like to have a server with this OS, you will be able to acquire one in under one hour. We also offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS to ensure that the VPS you will obtain will fully cover the system requirements of any web or offline app which you wish to install on the server. Managing the content on the server can be performed in two ways, depending on the choice you make on the order page. Without a Control Panel, you can do everything on your Debian-equipped server through Secure Shell, as you'll have root-level access, while with the Hepsia Control Panel, the root access will have certain limitations, but you will be able to do everything through your web browser using a handy web interface, even if you aren't very experienced. Using the optional Managed Services package that we offer, we can also maintain your Debian OS updated weekly, saving you effort and time.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
32-bit and 64-bit releases of Debian are available on our dedicated server
order page and you'll be able to choose all of them with just a click for your new server, depending on what software environment the applications which you wish to use require for top notch performance. You can also select if our Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on the server or whether it should come without any Control Panel at all. The first option is made for inexperienced users who want a Debian-powered server, but would like to control it like a shared website hosting account, whereas the second option is good for more experienced users who need to have more control, because ‘no Control Panel' means only Debian and the Apache web server software, but no other software set up on the server whatsoever. We will also save your time and effort with the Managed Services upgrade, as it features routine Operating System updates, so that you'll have a secure and stable Debian installation.
