Debian is an Operating System that uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually installed on desktop machines, it is being used on more and more 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 one of the most secure Operating Systems nowadays, as security patches are released within days after a problem is found. This is possible since thousands of well-trained 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 by using special mailing lists and reply within twenty minutes 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 the Linux releases with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. As the Operating System is free to use, you'll be able to modify both the core and all the packages in any way you see fit. In addition, you won't be required to pay any license fees.

Debian in VPS Servers

You're able to choose the Debian Operating System with each VPS server package that we supply. 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options that you can find on the order page, which means that you can select the one that will be more suitable for the software that you need to set up and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be installed either without Control Panel or with our tailor-made Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you will have more freedom, considering that you will have full root access and you can take advantage of the advantages and the full functionality provided by Debian. In the second case, the root access will be limited, however you're able to manage your website content through a web interface, not a console. In case you do not have much time to take care of your Debian-powered server, or if you don't have much experience, you could add the Managed Services upgrade to your package and our administrators will handle the regular OS updates.

Debian in Dedicated Servers

32-bit and 64-bit releases of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you are able to select all of them with just a single click for your new server, based on what software environment the apps which you plan to use require for optimal performance. You may also select if our Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on the server or if it should come without any Control Panel at all. The first option is made for less experienced users who need a Debian-powered server, yet want to control it like a shared hosting account, while the second option is good for more experienced users who wish to have more control, as ‘no Control Panel' means only Debian and the Apache web server software, and no other software installed on the server whatsoever. We can also save you time and effort with the Managed Services upgrade, because it includes regular Operating System updates, to ensure that you'll have a secure and stable Debian installation.
