Debian is an Operating System which uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually installed on desktop computers, it is being used on a growing number of web servers as well. The reason is that it is very stable, so a server running it will not need to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being among the most safe Operating Systems out there, as security patches are released within days after an issue is found. This is possible since thousands of qualified developers are working 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 by using special e-mail lists and respond in 20 min to any kind of question. In this light, you will enjoy top-level 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 several Linux releases with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. Since the Operating System is absolutely free to use, you will be able to modify both the core as well as all of the packages in the way you see fit. Furthermore, you will not have to pay any license fees.
Debian in VPS Web Hosting
You are able to select the Debian Operating System with each virtual private server package that we offer. 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are among the options that you'll find on the order page, so you can pick the one that will be more suitable for the software that you need to install and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be installed either devoid of Control Panel or with our custom Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you have more freedom, considering that you will have full root access and you will be able to use the advantages and the full functionality offered by Debian. In the second case, the root access is limited, but you can control your website content through a web interface, not a console. If you do not have a lot of time to command your Debian-powered server, or in case you don't have much experience, you are able to add the Managed Services upgrade to your plan and our admins will take care of the weekly OS updates.
