Read why the Debian Linux distribution is really so favored and why a lot of server admins choose it for their servers.
Debian is an OS which uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually installed on personal computers, it's being used on more and more web servers too. The reason is that it is very stable, so a server running it won't need to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being among the most protected Operating Systems you can get, since security patches are released within days after a problem is discovered. This is possible because thousands of well-trained 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 question. In this light, you will obtain top-level 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. Since the Operating System costs nothing to use, you can modify both the core as well as any of the packages in any way you see fit. Also, you won't have to pay any kind of license fees.
Debian in VPS Servers
If you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the VPS server
packages that we provide and select this Operating System on the registration page. You can choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release, as we give you the option to choose the right one, depending on the software which you wish to install on your server once it's set up. If you are more tech-savvy, you may get a Debian-powered VPS without a Control Panel, and you will have full root access and you can control the content and the software through SSH. If you are less experienced, yet you'd like to use software that requires Debian, you are able to select the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel on the order page and you'll be able to manage the whole server like a standard shared web hosting account. In addition, you can take advantage of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we supply, since it comes with weekly Operating System updates done by our administrators, among other useful things.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
32-bit and 64-bit versions of Debian are available on our dedicated server
order page and you'll be able to pick all of them with just a mouse click for your brand new machine, depending on what software environment the apps which you want to use require for top notch performance. You can also choose whether our Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on the server or whether it should come without a Control Panel at all. The first option is made for inexperienced users who want a Debian-powered server, yet want to manage it like a shared web hosting account, while the second option is good for more advanced users who would like to have more control, because ‘no Control Panel' means only Debian and the Apache web server software, and no other software installed 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 safe and stable Debian installation.
