Debian is an OS which uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually installed on personal computers, it is being used on more and more web servers too. The reason is that it's very stable, so a server running it will not have to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being among the most secure Operating Systems out there, as security patches are released within days after a problem is found. This is possible because thousands of well-experienced developers work for 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 mailing lists and reply within 20 minutes to any 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 among the Linux releases with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. Since the Operating System is absolutely free to use, you're able to modify both the core and any of the packages in the way you see fit. Furthermore, you won't need to pay any license fees.

Debian in VPS

You'll be able to get a Debian-powered virtual private server with all of our VPS plans and you can choose if the version that will be installed throughout the server setup process should be 32-bit or 64-bit. Thus, you'll make sure that the software environment will match the requirements of the apps that you wish to run and that the latter will function correctly. During the order process, you can also decide whether the VPS will come with the Hepsia Control Panel or without Control Panel at all. The first option will provide you with an intuitive graphical interface, through that you'll be able to control everything related to your world wide web presence using only a web browser - files, emails, databases, and many more. Without Control Panel at hand, you will need to make everything through a console, yet you will have full root access and you can install any kind of software that may not be compatible with Hepsia. In addition, you can add our optional Managed Services package, which includes weekly Operating System updates.

Debian in Dedicated Hosting

You can choose the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server with only a single click on our order page and depending on your choice, we'll set up 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 work in the very best way. Selecting a server without any Control Panel, you'll get Debian and the Apache web server software and you will be able to control everything using a console. A server that is obtained with the Hepsia Control Panel will include all the software that you will need for your websites. Even though with the latter option the root access is restricted, you'll be 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 do not have previous experience with this type of website hosting service. If you purchase our Managed Services upgrade, we will take care of your server and will update its OS weekly so as to make sure that you have the most current and most risk-free edition.
