Debian is an Operating System that uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually set up on personal computers, it's being used on an increasing number of web servers too. The reason is that it is very stable, so a server running it won't need to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be among the most secure Operating Systems out there, due to the fact that security patches are released within days after a problem is discovered. This is possible since thousands of skilled 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 by using special mailing lists and respond within 20 minutes to any kind of question. Thus, you will receive an outstanding level of support directly from the developers who know their own platform in detail, and not from a third-party support team. Debian is also among the Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. Since the Operating System is completely free to use, you're able to modify both the core and any of the packages in the way you see fit. Also, you won't be required to pay any kind of license fees.

Debian in VPS Servers

When you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the VPS server packages that we provide and choose this Operating System on the order page. You'll be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version, as we give you the option to select the right one, according to the software which you wish to install on your server once it's set up. In case you're more tech-savvy, you can get a Debian-powered VPS without a Control Panel, so you will have full root access and you are able to control the content and the software using SSH. If you are less experienced, but you'd like to use an application which requires Debian, you'll be able to pick our Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page and you can manage the entire server like a standard shared web hosting account. You can also reap the benefits of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we offer, since it includes once a week Operating System updates done by our administrators, among various other useful things.

Debian in Dedicated Servers

You are able to select the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with just a mouse click on our registration page and according to your choice, we will install the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS on the machine, to ensure that the software that you will install later will work in the optimal way. With a server without any Control Panel, you will receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you will be able to control everything using a console. A server that is ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel will include all of the software that you'll need for your websites. Although with the latter option the root access is restricted, you'll be able to manage the server as if it were a shared web hosting account, so you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you don't have previous expertise in this kind of website hosting service. If you purchase the Managed Services upgrade, we will take care of your server and will update its OS on a weekly basis in order to make sure that you have the most current and most risk-free edition.
