Debian is an Operating System which uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually installed on desktop machines, it is being used on more and more web servers too. 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 one of the most safe Operating Systems available, since security patches are released within days after an issue is found. This is possible since thousands of experienced 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 e-mail lists and reply in 20 minutes to any kind of question. In this light, you will 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 - over 30,000. As the Operating System is free to use, you can modify both the core as well as all the packages in the way you see fit. In addition, you will not 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 solutions that we supply and choose this Operating System on the registration page. You'll be able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version, since we give you the option to choose the right one, according to the software that you wish to install on your server once it's up and running. In case you're more tech-savvy, you can get a Debian-powered VPS without a Control Panel, and you'll have full root access and you'll be able to manage the content and the software using SSH. In case you are less experienced, but you'd like to use software which requires Debian, you're able to choose the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel on the order page and you will be able to manage the whole server like a standard shared web hosting account. In addition, you can reap the benefits of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we supply, because it includes once a week Operating System updates performed by our admins, among many other useful things.

Debian in Dedicated Servers

You're able to choose the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server with only a click on our registration page and according to your choice, we'll install the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS on the machine, to ensure that the software that you will install later will work in the best possible way. Using a server devoid of Control Panel, you'll get Debian and the Apache web server software and you can control everything through a console. A server that's ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel will come with all of the software that you'll need for your web sites. Even though with the latter option the root access will be limited, you're able to manage the server as if it were a shared hosting account, therefore you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you have no previous experience with this type of hosting service. When you order our Managed Services upgrade, we'll take care of your server and will update its OS every week so as to make sure that you have the most recent and most safe version.
