To what does the Debian OS owe its global popularity? What has made it the Linux distribution of choice for a lot of server administrators?
Debian is a preferred Linux release, that is used primarily on PC's, still numerous people have started using it lately as a web server Operating System as well, due to the stability and security it supplies. The latter is a result of the fact that Debian is developed and supported by numerous qualified volunteers worldwide, therefore any patch that's necessary to fix a certain issue is released within a few days. The very same community will also help you with any question or issue that a user may ever experience, as they can be contacted through electronic mail using e-mail lists and a competent response will be sent in around 15-20 min. 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 a detailed knowledge of how it functions. As Debian is provided for free, you will not need to pay any kind of 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 that are readily available for it.
Debian in VPS Servers
There're several Operating Systems that we provide with our VPS web hosting plans
and Debian is one of them, therefore if you'd like to have a server with this Operating System, you will be able to have one in under an hour. We also offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS to make sure that the VPS you will obtain will completely cover the system requirements of any kind of web or offline app that you intend 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 using Secure Shell, as you'll have root-level access, whereas through the Hepsia Control Panel, the root access will have certain restrictions, but you can do everything through your web browser using a user-friendly web interface, even if you are not very experienced. With the optional Managed Services package which we offer, we can also keep your Debian OS up to date every week, saving you time and effort.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You're able to select the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server
with only a single click on our order page and depending on your choice, we will install the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS on the machine, so that the software that you'll install later will perform in the best possible way. Choosing a server without Control Panel, you'll receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you are able to control everything using a console. A server that's acquired with the Hepsia Control Panel will include all the software which you'll need for your web sites. Though with the latter option the root access is 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 don't have previous expertise in this kind of hosting service. When you get our Managed Services upgrade, we'll take care of your server and will update its OS weekly to ensure that you have the most current and most secure release.
