Debian is an Operating System which uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually set up on desktop computers, it's being used on an increasing number of web servers too. The reason is that it is really 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 you can get, because security patches are released within days after a problem is found. This is possible because thousands of well-experienced developers are employed by the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, they also provide 24/7 support by using special e-mail lists and reply in twenty minutes to any question. Thus, 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 among the Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. Since the Operating System is free to use, you are able to modify both the core as well as all of the packages in the way you see fit. Also, you will not need to pay any kind of license fees.

Debian in VPS Servers

You'll be able to choose the Debian Operating System with each VPS server package that we offer. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of the options that you'll find on the order page, so you can select the one that is more suitable for the software that you'd like to install and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be set up either without Control Panel or with our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you'll have more freedom, because you will have full root access and you're able to use the advantages and the full functionality offered by Debian. In the second case, the root access will be limited, however you're able to control your web content via a web interface, not a console. If you do not have much time to command your Debian-powered server, or in case you don't have much experience, you're able to add the Managed Services upgrade to your package and our admins will take care of 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 will be able to choose any of them with just a single click for your brand new machine, depending on what software environment the applications which you plan to use require for the best performance. You can also select whether our Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on the server or whether it should come without a Control Panel at all. The first option is made for inexperienced users who need a Debian-powered server, but want to control it like a shared web hosting account, whereas the second option is suitable for more advanced users who would like to have more control, due to the fact that ‘no Control Panel' means only Debian and the Apache web server software, and no other software set up on the server whatsoever. We will also save your time and effort with our Managed Services upgrade, since it includes routine Operating System updates, so that you'll have a secure and stable Debian installation.
