Debian is an OS that uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually installed on desktops, it's being used on an increasing number of web servers as well. The reason is that it is very stable, so a server running it won't have to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being one of the most protected Operating Systems out there, due to the fact that security patches are released within days after an issue is discovered. This is possible because thousands of well-experienced developers work for the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, but they also provide 24/7 support by using special mailing lists and reply in twenty minutes to any kind of question. Thus, you'll have top-notch support directly from the developers who know their own platform in detail, and not from a third-party support team. Debian is also one of the Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. As the Operating System is absolutely free to use, you will be able to modify both the core and all of the packages in any way you see fit. Furthermore, you won't have to pay any license fees.
Debian in VPS Web Hosting
When you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the virtual private server packages that we offer and choose this Operating System on the registration page. You can choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release, as we give you the option to choose the right one, according to the software that you want to install on your server once it is set up. If you're more tech-savvy, you can get a Debian-powered VPS with no Control Panel, so you will have full root access and you will be able to control the content and the software through SSH. In case you are less experienced, but you would like to use an application which requires Debian, you will be able to pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page and you'll be able to manage the whole server like a standard shared hosting account. You may also take advantage of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we provide, as it features regular Operating System updates done by our admins, among other useful things.
