Debian is an Operating System which uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually set up on desktop machines, it's being used on more and more web servers as well. The reason is that it is really stable, so a server running it will not need to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be one of the most secure Operating Systems available, because security patches are released within days after a problem is found. This is possible since thousands of skilled developers work for the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, in addition, they provide 24/7 support by using special mailing lists and reply within 20 minutes to any kind of question. In this light, you will enjoy top-notch support directly from the developers who know their own platform in depth, and not from a third-party support team. Debian is also one of the Linux releases with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. Since the Operating System costs nothing to use, you are able to modify both the core as well as all of the packages in the way you see fit. Furthermore, you won't be required to pay any license fees.

Debian in VPS Hosting

When you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the virtual private server packages that we supply and select this Operating System on the registration page. You will be able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release, since we give you the option to choose the more appropriate one, according to the software which you'd like to install on your server once it's up and running. In case you're more tech-savvy, you may get a Debian-powered VPS without a Control Panel, and you'll have full root access and you are able to control the content and the software through SSH. If you are less experienced, yet you'd like to use software that requires Debian, you're able to select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page and you can manage the whole server like a standard shared hosting account. In addition, you can take advantage of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we provide, since it includes once a week Operating System updates done by our admins, among many other useful things.

Debian in Dedicated Web Hosting

32-bit and 64-bit versions of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you're able to select any of them with only a single click for your new machine, depending on what software environment the applications which you wish to use require for optimal performance. You may also choose whether our Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on the server or whether it should come with no Control Panel at all. The first option is made for less experienced users who want a Debian-powered server, but would like to manage it like a shared web hosting account, while the second option is good for more advanced users who want to have more control, because ‘no Control Panel' means only Debian and the Apache web server software, but no other software installed on the server whatsoever. We'll also save you time and effort with our Managed Services upgrade, as it includes regular Operating System updates, so that you will have a safe and stable Debian installation.
