To what does the Debian OS owe its popularity? 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 installed on desktop computers, it is being used on more and more web servers as well. The reason is that it is very stable, so a server running it will not need to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being one of the most secure Operating Systems to be found, since security patches are released within days after an issue is found. This is possible since thousands of experienced developers are part of the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, but they also provide 24/7 support through special e-mail lists and respond within 20 min to any question. Thus, you will get top-level 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 free to use, you're able to modify both the core as well as all the packages in any way you see fit. Furthermore, you won't need to pay any kind of license fees.
Debian in VPS Hosting
You can acquire a Debian-powered virtual private server
with all of our VPS solutions and you'll be able to choose if the version that will be installed during the server setup process will be 32-bit or 64-bit. In this way, you will make sure that the software environment will meet the system requirements of the apps which you wish to run and that the latter will function properly. During the order process, you can also decide if the VPS will come with the Hepsia Control Panel or without Control Panel at all. The first option will provide you with an easy to navigate graphical interface, through that you are able to manage everything related to your web presence using only a web browser - files, e-mail addresses, databases, and so on. Without Control Panel at hand, you will have to do everything via a console, but you will have full root access and you can install any software that may not be supported by Hepsia. You can also add our optional Managed Services package, which includes weekly Operating System updates.
Debian in Dedicated Web Hosting
Each dedicated server
that we supply can be installed with Debian and we'll test the program environment completely before we hand over your machine to ensure that it'll perform perfectly. You can choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release throughout the signup process, so that the apps which you set up can get the maximum out of your server. We can also maintain your Operating System up-to-date if you add the additional Managed Services package to your plan. If you get your Debian-driven server without a hosting Control Panel, you will be able to do anything you like with your machine and you'll have full root-level access, but you will need to be more skillful, as all the tasks will be performed using a Secure Shell console. When you acquire your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will get a web interface, through which you can control domains, files, databases, etcetera, and this might be the best option in case you are not very experienced, but a certain application that you need to use requires Debian. You can access your Hepsia-equipped server through SSH as well, however the things which you will be able to do are limited.
