Debian is an Operating System which uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually installed on desktop machines, it's being used on a growing number of web servers too. The reason is that it's very stable, so a server running it will not need to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being one of the most risk-free Operating Systems nowadays, due to the fact that security patches are released within days after an issue is discovered. This is possible since thousands of well-experienced developers are working 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 within 20 minutes to any kind of question. Thus, you will enjoy 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 free to use, you'll be able to modify both the core and any of 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'll be able to get a Debian-powered VPS server with any of our VPS plans and you will be able to choose if the version which will be installed during the server setup process will be 32-bit or 64-bit. In this way, you will ensure that the software environment will match the requirements of the apps that you wish to run and that the latter will work correctly. Throughout the order process, you may also select if the VPS will come with the Hepsia Control Panel or without any Control Panel at all. The first option gives you an easy-to-work-with graphical interface, through that you can control everything related to your web presence using only a web browser - files, e-mail addresses, databases, and the like. With no Control Panel at hand, you'll need to make everything via a console, however you will have full root access and you'll be able to set up any kind of software that may not be supported by Hepsia. In addition, you can add the optional Managed Services package, which includes weekly Operating System updates.

Debian in Dedicated Servers

You are able to pick the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server with just a single click on our order page and based on your choice, we'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS on the machine, so that the software that you will install later will work in the best possible way. Selecting a server devoid of Control Panel, you'll receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you will be able to manage everything using a console. A server which is ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel will come with all of the software that you may need for your web sites. Even though with the latter option the root access will be restricted, you will be able to manage the server as if it were a shared web hosting account, so that you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you do not have previous expertise in this kind of hosting service. When you purchase our Managed Services upgrade, we'll take care of your server and will update its OS every week in order to make sure that you have the most recent and most safe version.
