Debian is an OS which uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually installed on desktop computers, it is being used on more and more web servers too. The reason is that it is very stable, so a server running it will not have to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be among the most protected Operating Systems you can get, since security patches are released within days after a problem is discovered. This is possible because thousands of qualified developers are employed by 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 respond in twenty minutes to any question. Thus, you will receive 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. As the Operating System is free to use, you'll be able to modify both the core and all of the packages in the way you see fit. In addition, you will not have to pay any kind of license fees.

Debian in VPS Servers

You will be able to obtain a Debian-powered VPS server with any of our VPS packages and you can choose if the version which will be installed during the server setup process will be 32-bit or 64-bit. In this way, you can make sure that the software environment will meet the system requirements of the applications that you wish to run and that the latter will work appropriately. During the order process, you may also choose whether the VPS will come with the Hepsia Control Panel or with no Control Panel at all. The first option gives you a user-friendly graphical interface, through that you are able to manage everything related to your online presence using only an Internet browser - files, e-mail accounts, databases, and so on. Without a Control Panel at hand, you will need to make everything through a console, however you'll have full root access and you can install any software that may not be supported by Hepsia. You can also add the optional Managed Services package, that includes regular Operating System updates.

Debian in Dedicated Servers

You will be able to choose the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with a click on our registration page and depending on your choice, we will install the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS on the machine, so that the software that you'll install later will work in the best possible way. With a server with no Control Panel, you'll get Debian and the Apache web server software and you'll be able to manage everything through a console. A server which is ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel will come with all the software that you will need for your sites. Even though with the latter option the root access is restricted, you're able to manage the server as if it were a shared hosting account, which means that you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you have no previous expertise in this kind of web hosting service. If you buy our Managed Services upgrade, we'll take care of your server and will update its OS every week in order to make sure that you have the most recent and most secure edition.
