Debian is an Operating System which uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually set up on desktops, 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 won't have to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being one of the most risk-free Operating Systems out there, since security patches are released within days after a problem is discovered. This is possible since thousands of skilled 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 via special e-mail lists and reply in twenty minutes to any question. Thus, you'll obtain top-level 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 distributions with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. Since the Operating System is free to use, you're able to modify both the core and all of the packages in the way you see fit. Furthermore, you won't have to pay any kind of license fees.

Debian in VPS Servers

If you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the VPS server plans that we provide and pick this Operating System on the registration page. You can pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release, as we give you the option to pick the more appropriate one, according to the software that you wish to install on your server once it's set up. If you're more tech-savvy, you may get a Debian-powered VPS with no Control Panel, so you will have full root access and you can manage the content and the software through SSH. If you are less experienced, but you would like to use an application which requires Debian, you will be able to choose our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel on the order page and you'll be able to manage the entire server like a standard shared hosting account. In addition, you can take advantage of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we supply, because it features weekly Operating System updates done by our administrators, among many other useful things.

Debian in Dedicated Servers

You are able to select the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with just a single click on our order page and depending on your choice, we'll install the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS on your machine, to ensure that the software that you'll install later will perform in the best way. Selecting a server with no Control Panel, you will receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you'll be able to control everything using a console. A server which is acquired with our Hepsia Control Panel will feature all of the software that you may need for your Internet sites. Even though with the latter option the root access is limited, you'll be able to control the server as if it were a shared website hosting account, therefore you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you do not have previous expertise in this type of web hosting service. If you buy the Managed Services upgrade, we'll maintain your server and will update its OS every week in order to ensure that you have the most current and most risk-free release.
