Debian is an OS that uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually set up on desktop machines, it is being used on more and more web servers too. The reason is that it's really stable, so a server running it will not have to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be one of the most risk-free Operating Systems in existence, since security patches are released within days after a problem is found. This is possible since thousands of qualified 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 via special mailing lists and reply in 20 min to any kind of question. Thus, you'll have 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 releases with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. Since the Operating System is absolutely free to use, you're able to modify both the core as well as all the packages in any way you see fit. Furthermore, you will not need to pay any license fees.

Debian in VPS Hosting

You can pick the Debian Operating System with each and every virtual private server solution that we offer. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of the options that you can find on the order page, so you can select the one that will be more suitable for the software that you need to install and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be installed either with no Control Panel or with our custom Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you'll have more freedom, since you will have full root access and you will be able to make use of the advantages and the full functionality offered by Debian. In the second case, the root access is restricted, however you can control your online content through a web interface, not a console. In case you don't have much time to manage your Debian-powered server, or in case you don't have substantial experience, you could add the Managed Services upgrade to your package and our administrators will handle the regular OS updates.

Debian in Dedicated Web Hosting

You are able to choose the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server with only a single click on our order page and based on your choice, we'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS on the machine, to ensure that the software that you'll install later will perform in the best possible way. Selecting a server without any Control Panel, you will get Debian and the Apache web server software and you'll be able to control everything using a console. A server that's obtained with the Hepsia Control Panel will include all of the software which you may need for your websites. Even though with the latter option the root access is limited, you are able to control the server as if it were a shared website hosting account, thus you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you have no previous expertise in this type of website hosting service. If you purchase our Managed Services upgrade, we'll maintain your server and will update its OS weekly to make sure that you have the latest and most risk-free edition.
