Debian is an OS which uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually installed on desktops, it's being used on a growing 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 among the most safe Operating Systems available, as security patches are released within days after a problem is discovered. This is possible since 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 via special e-mail lists and respond in 20 min to any kind of question. In this light, 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 - more than 30,000. As the Operating System is free to use, you can modify both the core as well as all the packages in the way you see fit. In addition, you will not have to pay any license fees.

Debian in VPS Servers

You are able to get a Debian-powered VPS server with any of our VPS solutions 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. Thus, you will make sure that the software environment will meet the requirements of the apps which you want to run and that the latter will function correctly. Throughout the order process, you may also select whether the VPS will come with the Hepsia Control Panel or without Control Panel at all. The first option will provide you with an easy-to-use graphical interface, through which you will be able to control everything related to your online presence using only a web browser - files, emails, databases, etcetera. Without a Control Panel at hand, you will have to make everything via a console, however you'll have full root access and you can install any kind of software that may not be compatible with Hepsia. You can also add the optional Managed Services package, that includes weekly Operating System updates.

Debian in Dedicated Servers

You will be able to choose the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with a single click on our registration page and according to your choice, we'll install the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS on your machine, to ensure that the software that you'll install later will work in the very best way. Choosing a server without any Control Panel, you will receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you are able to manage everything using a console. A server that is ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel will come with all the software that you may need for your Internet sites. Though with the latter option the root access will be limited, you can control the server as if it were a shared website hosting account, therefore you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you don't have previous expertise in this type of web hosting service. If you order the Managed Services upgrade, we will take care of your server and will update its OS every week to make sure that you have the most recent and most risk-free release.
