Debian is an Operating System which uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually installed on desktop computers, it's 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 secure Operating Systems nowadays, because security patches are released within days after an issue is found. This is possible since thousands of experienced developers are part of the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, in addition, they provide 24/7 support through special e-mail lists and respond in 20 minutes to any question. In this light, you'll enjoy 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 - over 30,000. As the Operating System is free to use, you're able to modify both the core as well as any of the packages in any way you see fit. Furthermore, you won't need to pay any kind of license fees.

Debian in VPS Servers

When you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the VPS server plans that we supply and pick this Operating System on the order page. You will be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release, as we give you the option to select the right one, according to the software which you want to install on your server once it is set up. When you're more tech-savvy, you may get a Debian-powered VPS without a Control Panel, and you will have full root access and you'll be able to manage the content and the software through SSH. In case you are less experienced, but you would like to use an app that requires Debian, you are able to select our Hepsia 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 benefit from the optional Managed Services upgrade that we provide, as it features regular Operating System updates done by our administrators, among various other useful things.

Debian in Dedicated Servers

Each and every dedicated server that we supply can be installed with Debian and we'll test the program environment in depth before we hand over the machine to ensure that it will perform flawlessly. You will be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version throughout the sign-up process, so the apps that you install will be able to get the maximum out of your server. We can also maintain your Operating System up-to-date when you add the optional Managed Services package to your plan. In case you acquire your Debian-driven server without a web hosting Control Panel, you will be able to do anything you want with your machine and you will have full root-level access, but you will have to be more skillful, because all of the tasks will be performed through a Secure Shell console. If you get your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you'll receive a web interface, via which you'll be able to control domains, files, databases, and many others, and this might be a better option in case you are not very experienced, but a particular application that you intend to use requires Debian. You can access your Hepsia-equipped server through SSH as well, but the things that you'll be able to do will be restricted.
