Read why the Debian Linux distribution is so extremely well-liked and exactly why server admins choose it for their machines.
Debian is an OS that uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually installed on personal computers, it's being used on an increasing number of web servers as well. The reason is that it's really stable, so a server running it won't have to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being one of the most safe Operating Systems to choose from, since security patches are released within days after a problem is discovered. This is possible because thousands of qualified 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 20 min to any question. In this light, you will enjoy top-notch 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 - more than 30,000. As the Operating System is absolutely free to use, you are able to modify both the core and all the packages in any way you see fit. Also, you will not be required to pay any kind of license fees.
Debian in VPS Servers
There're a few Operating Systems that we offer with our Linux VPS servers
and Debian is among them, which means that if you'd like to have a server with this Operating System, you will be able to get one in under an hour. In addition, we offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS to make sure that the VPS you will get will completely cover the system requirements of any kind of web or offline application which you need to install on the server. Managing the content on the server can be done in two ways, depending on the choice you make on the order page. Without a Control Panel, you're able to do everything on your Debian-equipped server through Secure Shell, as you will have root-level access, whereas through the Hepsia Control Panel, the root access will have some limitations, but you'll be able to do everything through your Internet browser using an intuitive web interface, even if you are not very experienced. Using the optional Managed Services package that we supply, we'll also keep your Debian OS updated weekly, saving you time and effort.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
Each dedicated server
that we provide can be set up with Debian and we'll test the software environment in depth before we hand over your machine in order to make sure that it will perform properly. You're able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release during the signup process, so the applications that you set up will be able to get the maximum out of your server. We can also maintain your OS up-to-date if you add the additional Managed Services package to your plan. If you get your Debian-driven server without a web hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to do anything you like with the machine and you'll have full root-level access, however you'll need to be more skillful, as all of the tasks will be performed through a Secure Shell console. When you get your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will have a web interface, through which you can control domains, files, databases, etcetera, and this might be a better option in case you aren't very experienced, but a specific application which you need to use requires Debian. You'll have access to your Hepsia-equipped server through SSH too, but the things that you are able to do are restricted.
