Learn why the Debian Linux distribution is so extremely popular and exactly why server admins select it for their machines.
Debian is an Operating System which uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually installed on desktop machines, it is being used on a growing number of 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 protected Operating Systems nowadays, as security patches are released within days after a problem is found. This is possible since thousands of experienced developers are employed by the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, in addition, they provide 24/7 support through special e-mail lists and respond in 20 minutes to any question. In this light, you'll enjoy 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 several Linux releases with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. As the Operating System is free to use, you will be able to modify both the core and all of the packages in the way you see fit. Also, you won't be required to pay any kind of license fees.
Debian in VPS
You can acquire a Debian-powered virtual private server
with all of our VPS plans and you can choose if the version that will be installed during the server setup process will be 32-bit or 64-bit. This way, you'll make sure that the software environment will meet the requirements of the applications that you need to run and that the latter will run appropriately. Throughout the order process, you can also choose whether the VPS will come with our Hepsia Control Panel or without a Control Panel at all. The first option will give you an easy-to-work-with graphical interface, through that you are able to control everything related to your online presence using only an Internet browser - files, e-mail accounts, databases, and so on. Without Control Panel at hand, you'll need to do everything via a console, however you'll have full root access and you'll be able to install any software that may not be compatible with Hepsia. You may also add the optional Managed Services package, that includes weekly Operating System updates.
Debian in Dedicated Hosting
Each and every dedicated server
that we supply can be installed with Debian and we'll test the program environment carefully before we hand over your server so as to ensure that it will perform appropriately. You're able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version throughout the registration process, so the apps which you install can get the maximum out of your server. We can also keep your Operating System up-to-date when you add the additional Managed Services package to your plan. When you get your Debian-driven server without a hosting Control Panel, you can do anything you like with the machine and you will have full root-level access, however you'll have to be more experienced, because all the tasks will be performed using a Secure Shell console. If you obtain your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will have a web interface, through which you can manage domains, files, databases, and many others, and this might be a better option if you are not very experienced, and a particular app that you need to use requires Debian. You'll have access to your Hepsia-equipped server through SSH too, yet the things which you can do are limited.
