To what does the Debian OS owe its recognition? What has made it the Linux distribution of choice for a lot of server admins?
Debian is an Operating System 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 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 considered to be among the most risk-free Operating Systems in existence, because security patches are released within days after an issue is discovered. This is possible since thousands of qualified developers are working for the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, they also provide 24/7 support by using special e-mail lists and reply in 20 minutes to any kind of question. In this light, you will get an outstanding level of support directly from the developers who know their own platform in depth, and not from a third-party support team. Debian is also among the Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. As the Operating System is completely free to use, you will be able to modify both the core and all the packages in any way you see fit. Furthermore, you will not have to pay any kind of license fees.
Debian in VPS Hosting
You are able to pick the Debian Operating System with each virtual private server
solution that we supply. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are among the options that you can find on the order page, so you can select the one that is more suitable for the software that you'd like to set up and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be set up either with no Control Panel or with our custom Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you have more freedom, as you will have full root access and you'll be able to take advantage of the advantages and the full functionality offered by Debian. In the second case, the root access is limited, yet you can manage your online content via a web interface, not a console. In case you don't have much time to take care of your Debian-powered server, or if you do not have a lot of experience, you're able to add the Managed Services upgrade to your package and our admins will handle the weekly OS updates.
Debian in Dedicated Web Hosting
32-bit and 64-bit releases of Debian are available on our dedicated server
order page and you are able to pick all of them with only a single click for your brand new server, based on what software environment the applications that you plan to use require for the best performance. You may also select whether our Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on the server or whether it should come without Control Panel at all. The first option is suitable for inexperienced users who need a Debian-powered server, but would like to manage it like a shared web hosting account, while the second option is good for more experienced users who wish to have more control, since ‘no Control Panel' stands for only Debian and the Apache web server software, but no other software installed on the server whatsoever. We will also save your time and effort with the Managed Services upgrade, since it comes with regular Operating System updates, so that you will have a safe and stable Debian installation.
