To what does the Debian OS owe its worldwide recognition? What has made it the Linux distribution of choice for a lot of server admins?
Debian is a widespread Linux release, that's used mainly on PC's, but a lot of people have started using it lately as a web server OS too, due to the stability and protection it supplies. The latter is a consequence of the fact that Debian is developed and supported by countless qualified volunteers around the globe, so that any patch which is required to fix some issue is released within a few days. The same community will also help with any question or trouble which a user may ever encounter, since they can be contacted through email using e-mail lists and a qualified response will be sent in no more than 15-20 min. The advantage here is that your questions will be addressed by the same people who have designed 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 customize 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
There are a few Operating Systems that we provide with our VPS hosting plans
and Debian is one of them, which means that when you need a server with this OS, you will be able to get one in under one hour. In addition, we offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS to ensure that the VPS you'll receive will fully cover the system requirements of any kind of web or offline application that you intend to install on the server. Managing the content on the server can be done in two ways, depending on the choice you make on the order page. Without a Control Panel, you are able to do everything on your Debian-equipped server using Secure Shell, as you'll have root-level access, while through the Hepsia Control Panel, the root access will have certain limitations, but you'll be able to do everything through your Internet browser using an intuitive web interface, even when you aren't very experienced. With the optional Managed Services package that we supply, we will also keep your Debian OS updated weekly, saving you time and effort.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
32-bit and 64-bit editions of Debian are available on our dedicated server
order page and you can pick all of them with only a single click for your new machine, based on what software environment the apps which you plan to use require for optimal performance. You can also select whether our Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on the server or whether it should come with no Control Panel at all. The first option is suitable for inexperienced users who want a Debian-powered server, but would like to manage it like a shared web hosting account, while the second option is good for more advanced users who need to have more control, due to the fact that ‘no Control Panel' means only Debian and the Apache web server software, but no other software installed on the server at all. We'll also save your time and effort with our Managed Services upgrade, since it includes routine Operating System updates, so that you'll have a secure and stable Debian installation.
