To what does the Debian OS owe its worldwide recognition? What has made it the Linux distribution of choice for many server admins?
Debian is an OS that uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually set up on desktop machines, it is 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 have to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be among the most secure Operating Systems you can get, since security patches are released within days after a problem is found. This is possible because thousands of skilled developers are part of 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 mailing lists and reply within 20 minutes to any question. In this light, you'll get 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 among the Linux releases with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. As the Operating System is completely free 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 be required to pay any license fees.
Debian in VPS Servers
If you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the VPS server
plans that we provide and choose this Operating System on the registration page. You can select the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release, as we give you the option to select the more appropriate one, according to the software that you'd like to install on your server once it's up and running. If you are more tech-savvy, you can get a Debian-powered VPS with no Control Panel, and you will have full root access and you will be able to control the content and the software through SSH. In case you are less experienced, but you'd like to use an application which requires Debian, you will be able to select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page and you can manage the entire server like a standard shared web hosting account. You may also take advantage of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we offer, because it comes with once a week Operating System updates done by our admins, among various 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 select all of them with only a mouse click for your brand new server, depending on what software environment the applications which you wish to use require for top notch performance. You may also choose if our Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on the server or whether it should come without a Control Panel at all. The first option is suitable for inexperienced users who want a Debian-powered server, yet wish to control it like a shared web hosting account, whereas the second option is good for more advanced users who need to have more control, as ‘no Control Panel' stands for only Debian and the Apache web server software, and no other software set up on the server whatsoever. We can also save you time and effort with our Managed Services upgrade, since it includes regular Operating System updates, to ensure that you will have a secure and stable Debian installation.
