Debian is an OS that uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually installed on personal computers, it is being used on more and more web servers as well. The reason is that it is really stable, so a server running it will not need to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be one of the most risk-free Operating Systems you can get, due to the fact that security patches are released within days after an issue is found. This is possible since thousands of well-trained developers are working for the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, they also provide 24/7 support through special mailing lists and respond in 20 min to any kind of question. In this light, you'll receive top-notch 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 distributions with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. Since the Operating System is completely free to use, you'll be able to modify both the core and all the packages in any way you see fit. Also, you will not have to pay any kind of license fees.

Debian in VPS Servers

You'll be able to choose the Debian Operating System with each and every VPS server solution that we supply. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of the options that you will find on the order page, which means that you can pick the one that will be more suitable for the software that you would like to install and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be installed either without Control Panel or with our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you'll have more freedom, because you will have full root access and you will be able to take advantage of the advantages and the full functionality provided by Debian. In the second case, the root access will be restricted, yet you are able to control your website content via a web interface, not a console. If you do not have much time to manage your Debian-powered server, or in case you do not have much experience, you're able to add the Managed Services upgrade to your package and our admins will handle the regular OS updates.

Debian in Dedicated Servers

You're able to choose the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server with only a click on our order page and according to your choice, we'll install the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS on the machine, so that the software that you will install later will perform in the very best way. Choosing a server without Control Panel, you'll receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you'll be able to control everything through a console. A server which is obtained with the Hepsia Control Panel will come with all the software that you'll need for your sites. Even though with the latter option the root access is restricted, you're able to control the server as if it were a shared website hosting account, so you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you don't have previous experience with this type of website hosting service. If you buy the 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 secure edition.
