Learn why the Debian Linux distribution is so extremely well-liked and why many server admins choose it for their machines.
Debian is a preferred Linux distribution, which is used primarily on desktop computers, however lots of people have begun using it lately as a web server Operating System as well, due to the stability and security it supplies. The latter is a direct result the fact that Debian is developed and supported by a large number of qualified volunteers all around the world, therefore any patch that's required to fix a certain issue is released within a couple of days. The same community can also help with any question or trouble which a user may ever have, as they can be contacted via email using e-mail lists and a qualified response will be sent in around 15-20 minutes. The advantage here is that all your questions will be answered by the same people who have created the Operating System itself and they have an in-depth knowledge of how it works. As Debian is free, you won't need to pay any license fees to use it and you will be able to personalize it as much as you want or need. This is valid for both the Operating System and the 30.000+ software packages which are available for it.
Debian in VPS Servers
There're a few Operating Systems that we supply with our Linux VPS web hosting plans
and Debian is one of them, which means that if you need a server with this OS, you can obtain one in under one hour. In addition, we offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS to make sure that the VPS you will obtain will fully cover the system requirements of any kind of web or offline application that you need to install on the server. Managing the content on the server can be performed in two ways, according to the choice you make on the order page. With no Control Panel, you are able to do everything on your Debian-equipped server through Secure Shell, as you will have root-level access, while through the Hepsia Control Panel, the root access will have certain limitations, but you will be able to do everything from your Internet browser using a handy web interface, even when you are not very experienced. When you use the optional Managed Services package which we offer, we can also maintain your Debian OS updated on a weekly basis, saving you time and effort.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You can choose the Debian OS for your new dedicated server
with only a mouse click on our order page and based on your choice, we will install the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS on your machine, to ensure that the software that you will install later will work in the right way. With a server devoid of Control Panel, you'll receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you can manage everything using a console. A server that's acquired with the Hepsia Control Panel will include all the software that you'll need for your sites. Though with the latter option the root access will be limited, you are able to manage the server as if it were a shared web hosting account, so that you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you do not have previous experience with this kind of web hosting service. When you get the Managed Services upgrade, we'll maintain your server and will update its OS on a weekly basis so as to make sure that you have the latest and most risk-free version.
