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 a popular Linux release, which is used primarily on desktop computers, however many people have begun using it lately as a web server OS too, due to the stability and protection it supplies. The latter is a result of the fact that Debian is developed and supported by countless qualified volunteers internationally, so any patch which is required to fix a certain issue is released in a couple of days. The same community will also help you with any question or issue that a user may ever experience, as they can be contacted through email using mailing lists and a qualified response will be sent in around 15-20 minutes. The advantage here is that your queries will be responded to by the same people who have made the Operating System itself and they have a detailed knowledge of how it functions. As Debian is free, you will not 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 the Operating System as well as the 30.000+ software packages which are available for it.
Debian in VPS Servers
If you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the VPS server
solutions that we supply and select this Operating System on the order page. You'll be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release, as we give you the option to choose the right one, depending on the software which you would like to install on your server once it is up and running. If you are more tech-savvy, you may get a Debian-powered VPS without a Control Panel, so you will have full root access and you can control the content and the software using SSH. If you are less experienced, but you'd like to use software that requires Debian, you will be able to select the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel on the order page and you will be able to manage the whole server like a standard shared web hosting account. In addition, you can benefit from the optional Managed Services upgrade that we offer, since it features weekly Operating System updates done by our administrators, among many other useful things.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You can choose the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server
with only a single click on our registration page and based on your choice, we will set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS on the machine, to ensure that the software that you'll install later will work in the right way. Using a server without any Control Panel, you'll receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you can manage everything using a console. A server that's obtained with our Hepsia Control Panel will include all the software that you will need for your Internet sites. Although with the latter option the root access is restricted, you will be able to control the server as if it were a shared web hosting account, so you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you have no previous expertise in this kind of website hosting service. When you buy our Managed Services upgrade, we'll take care of your server and will update its OS every week to make sure that you have the latest and most safe version.
