Debian is an Operating System that uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually installed on desktop computers, it is being used on an increasing 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 one of the most safe Operating Systems nowadays, because security patches are released within days after a problem is found. This is possible since thousands of well-trained developers are employed by the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, but they also provide 24/7 support through special e-mail lists and respond in twenty minutes to any kind of question. In this light, you'll obtain an outstanding level of support directly from the developers who know their own platform in depth, and not from a third-party support team. Debian is also one of several Linux releases with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. As the Operating System costs nothing to use, you're able to modify both the core as well as all of the packages in the way you see fit. Furthermore, you won't be required to pay any license fees.

Debian in VPS Servers

When you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the VPS server plans that we offer and pick this Operating System on the registration page. You can choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version, since we give you the option to choose the more appropriate one, according to the software which you would like to install on your server once it's set up. If you are more tech-savvy, you may get a Debian-powered VPS without a Control Panel, so you'll have full root access and you're able to control the content and the software via SSH. If you are less experienced, yet you'd like to use an application which requires Debian, you are able to select our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel on the order page and you can manage the entire server like a standard shared hosting account. You can also take full advantage of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we offer, because it includes weekly Operating System updates performed by our admins, among other useful things.

Debian in Dedicated Servers

You can pick the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with just a mouse click on our registration page and based on your choice, we'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS on your machine, so that the software that you'll install later will work in the right way. Selecting a server with no Control Panel, you'll get Debian and the Apache web server software and you can manage everything using a console. A server which is obtained with our Hepsia Control Panel will include all the software which you may need for your Internet sites. Though with the latter option the root access will be restricted, you're able to manage the server as if it were a shared website hosting account, thus you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you have no previous expertise in this kind of hosting service. When you get our Managed Services upgrade, we'll maintain your server and will update its OS weekly so as to ensure that you have the latest and most risk-free release.
