Learn why the Debian Linux distribution is indeed so well-liked and the reasons why server admins pick it for their servers.
Debian is an OS that uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually installed on desktops, it's being used on a growing number of web servers too. The reason is that it is really stable, so a server running it won't need to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being one of the most safe Operating Systems to be found, because security patches are released within days after an issue is discovered. This is possible since thousands of well-trained developers are working 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 e-mail lists and respond within twenty minutes to any kind of question. In this light, you'll have an outstanding level of 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 releases with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. Since the Operating System is absolutely free to use, you're able to modify both the core and all of the packages in the way you see fit. In addition, you won't need to pay any kind of license fees.
Debian in VPS Hosting
You'll be able to obtain a Debian-powered virtual private server
with all of our VPS solutions 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. In this way, you can guarantee that the software environment will meet the system requirements of the applications that you want to run and that the latter will run efficiently. Throughout the order process, you can also decide whether the VPS will come with the Hepsia Control Panel or without Control Panel at all. The first option will give you an intuitive graphical interface, via that you'll be able to manage everything related to your online presence using only a web browser - files, email accounts, databases, and many more. Without Control Panel at hand, you will have to do everything via a console, but you'll have full root access and you can set up any software that may not be supported by Hepsia. You may also add our optional Managed Services package, that includes regular Operating System updates.
Debian in Dedicated Web Hosting
32-bit and 64-bit editions of Debian are available on our dedicated server
order page and you are able to pick all of them with only a click for your new server, depending on what software environment the applications that you would like to use require for top notch performance. You can also select whether our Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on the server or if it should come with no Control Panel at all. The first option is made for less experienced users who need a Debian-powered server, but want to control it like a shared hosting account, while the second option is suitable for more experienced users who would like to have more control, because ‘no Control Panel' stands for only Debian and the Apache web server software, but no other software set up on the server at all. We will also save you time and effort with our Managed Services upgrade, because it features regular Operating System updates, to ensure that you will have a safe and stable Debian installation.
