To what does the Debian OS owe its recognition? What has made it the Linux distribution of choice for countless server admins?
Debian is an OS which uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually installed on personal computers, it's being used on a growing number of web servers as well. The reason is that it's very stable, so a server running it won't need to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be among the most protected Operating Systems to choose from, because security patches are released within days after a problem is discovered. 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, they also provide 24/7 support by using special mailing lists and reply within twenty minutes to any question. Thus, you will 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 one of several Linux releases with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. Since the Operating System costs nothing to use, you can modify both the core as well as all of the packages in the way you see fit. In addition, you will not have to pay any license fees.
Debian in VPS Servers
You are able to get a Debian-powered VPS server
with all of our VPS plans and you will be able to choose if the version that will be installed throughout the server setup process will be 32-bit or 64-bit. Thus, you can ensure that the software environment will meet the requirements of the apps which you want to run and that the latter will function properly. Throughout the order process, you may also decide whether the VPS will come with the Hepsia Control Panel or without any Control Panel at all. The first option will provide you with an intuitive graphical interface, via that you will be able to control everything related to your world wide web presence using only a web browser - files, e-mail accounts, databases, and the like. With no Control Panel at hand, you'll need to make everything via a console, however you will have full root access and you can set up any kind of software that may not be compatible with Hepsia. You can also add the optional Managed Services package, that includes weekly Operating System updates.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You can choose the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server
with a mouse click on our registration page and based on your choice, we will install the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS on the machine, so that the software that you will install later will work in the right way. Using a server with no Control Panel, you'll get Debian and the Apache web server software and you're able to manage everything through a console. A server that's obtained with our Hepsia Control Panel will come with all of the software which you'll need for your sites. Even though with the latter option the root access will be limited, you will be able to control the server as if it were a shared hosting account, so you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you have no previous expertise in this type of website hosting service. If you purchase our Managed Services upgrade, we'll take care of your server and will update its OS weekly in order to ensure that you have the most recent and most secure release.
