Read why the Debian Linux distribution is really so popular and why a lot of server admins pick it for their servers.
Debian is an OS which uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually installed on desktop computers, it's being used on more and more web servers as well. The reason is that it's really stable, so a server running it will not need to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being one of the most risk-free Operating Systems available, due to the fact that security patches are released within days after a problem is found. 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, they also provide 24/7 support via special e-mail lists and respond in twenty minutes to any kind of question. In this light, you'll have 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 among the Linux releases 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 any of the packages in any way you see fit. In addition, you won't have to pay any kind of license fees.
Debian in VPS Web Hosting
You'll be able to get a Debian-powered virtual private server
with any of our VPS packages and you will be able to choose if the version which will be installed throughout the server setup process will be 32-bit or 64-bit. In this way, you can ensure that the software environment will match the requirements of the apps which you want to run and that the latter will work properly. Throughout the order process, you can also decide whether the VPS will come with the Hepsia Control Panel or without a Control Panel at all. The first option provides you with an easy-to-work-with graphical interface, via that you can control everything related to your world wide web presence using only a web browser - files, e-mail addresses, databases, and the like. Without a Control Panel at hand, you'll have to make everything through a console, but you'll have full root access and you can install any software that may not be compatible with Hepsia. You may also add our optional Managed Services package, that includes weekly Operating System updates.
Debian in Dedicated Servers Hosting
32-bit and 64-bit versions of Debian are available on our dedicated server
order page and you are able to choose all of them with just a mouse click for your brand new machine, based on what software environment the apps that you plan to use require for top notch performance. You may also select if our Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on the server or whether it should come without Control Panel at all. The first option is suitable for less experienced users who need a Debian-powered server, but wish to manage it like a shared website hosting account, whereas the second option is good for more advanced users who wish to have more control, due to the fact that ‘no Control Panel' means only Debian and the Apache web server software, but no other software installed on the server at all. We will also save you time and effort with our Managed Services upgrade, since it includes routine Operating System updates, to ensure that you'll have a safe and stable Debian installation.
