Discover why lots of system administrators head straight for Debian when selecting a new Operating System for their servers.
Debian is an OS that uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually set up on desktops, it's being used on an increasing number of web servers as well. The reason is that it's very stable, so a server running it won't need to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be one of the most secure Operating Systems in existence, because security patches are released within days after a problem is found. This is possible because thousands of skilled developers work for the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, in addition, they provide 24/7 support through special mailing lists and respond in twenty minutes to any question. Thus, you'll receive top-level support directly from the developers who know their own platform in depth, and not from a third-party support team. Debian is also one of the Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. As the Operating System is absolutely free to use, you are able to modify both the core as well as all of the packages in the way you see fit. Also, you won't be required to pay any license fees.
Debian in VPS Web Hosting
There are a few Operating Systems that we provide with our Linux VPS web hosting packages and Debian is among them, which means that if you need a server with this OS, you will be able to have one in under an hour. In addition, we offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS to ensure that the VPS you will have will completely cover the system requirements of any web or offline application which you would like to install on the server. Controlling the content on the server can be done in two ways, according to the choice you make on the order page. Without a Control Panel, you can do everything on your Debian-equipped server using Secure Shell, as you will have root-level access, whereas using 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 user-friendly web interface, even if you are not very experienced. Using the optional Managed Services package that we offer, we'll also keep your Debian OS up to date on a weekly basis, saving you effort and time.
