Debian is an Operating System which uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually set up on personal computers, it's being used on more and more web servers as well. The reason is that it's really stable, so a server running it won't need to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be among the most protected Operating Systems nowadays, since security patches are released within days after an issue is found. This is possible because thousands of well-trained developers are part of the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, they also provide 24/7 support via special mailing lists and respond within 20 min to any kind of question. In this light, you will obtain 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 the Linux releases with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. Since the Operating System costs nothing to use, you can modify both the core as well as all the packages in the way you see fit. Furthermore, you will not need to pay any kind of license fees.
Debian in VPS Servers
You can obtain a Debian-powered VPS server with any of our VPS packages and you will be able to choose if the version which will be installed during the server setup process should be 32-bit or 64-bit. In this way, you will ensure that the software environment will meet the system requirements of the apps which you want to run and that the latter will run appropriately. During the order process, you may also choose if the VPS will come with our Hepsia Control Panel or without any Control Panel at all. The first option will give you an easy-to-use graphical interface, via which you will be able to control everything related to your online presence using only a web browser - files, email addresses, databases, and many more. Without Control Panel at hand, you'll need to make everything via a console, but you'll have full root access and you will be able to install any software that may not be compatible with Hepsia. You may also add the optional Managed Services package, which includes weekly Operating System updates.
