Debian is an Operating System which uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually installed on desktops, it's 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 among the most secure Operating Systems nowadays, since security patches are released within days after a problem is found. This is possible since thousands of qualified 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 through special mailing lists and respond within 20 minutes to any kind of question. In this light, you will receive 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 absolutely free to use, you will be able to modify both the core as well as all the packages in any way you see fit. In addition, you won't have 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 packages that we supply and choose this Operating System on the order page. You will be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version, because we give you the option to pick the more appropriate one, according to the software that you would like to install on your server once it's up and running. If you're more tech-savvy, you can get a Debian-powered VPS with no Control Panel, and you'll have full root access and you are able to manage the content and the software via SSH. If you are less experienced, yet you would like to use an app which requires Debian, you can pick the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel on the order page and you will be able to manage the entire server like a standard shared web hosting account. You may also take advantage of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we offer, because it comes with weekly Operating System updates performed by our admins, among various other useful things.

Debian in Dedicated Servers

You can select the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server with only a single click on our order page and according to your choice, we will set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS on the machine, to ensure that the software that you will install later will perform in the right way. With a server without any Control Panel, you'll get Debian and the Apache web server software and you will be able to control everything through a console. A server that's acquired with the Hepsia Control Panel will include all of the software that you'll need for your web sites. Even though with the latter option the root access is restricted, you are 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 don't have previous expertise in this type of web hosting service. If you buy our Managed Services upgrade, we'll take care of your server and will update its OS on a weekly basis in order to make sure that you have the latest and most risk-free version.
