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 too. The reason is that it's 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 risk-free Operating Systems available, since security patches are released within days after an issue is discovered. This is possible since thousands of well-trained developers work for the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, but they also provide 24/7 support through special mailing lists and respond within twenty minutes to any kind of question. In this light, you will have top-level 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. Since the Operating System is free to use, you're able to modify both the core as well as any of the packages in the way you see fit. Also, you won't be required to pay any kind of license fees.

Debian in VPS Servers

You can select the Debian Operating System with each and every VPS server package that we offer. 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are among the options that you'll find on the order page, so you can pick the one that is more suitable for the software that you need to set up and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be installed either devoid of Control Panel or with our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you will have more freedom, as you will have full root access and you're able to take advantage of the advantages and the full functionality offered by Debian. In the second case, the root access will be limited, however you can manage your website content through a web interface, not a console. If you don't have a lot of time to maintain your Debian-powered server, or if you do not have substantial experience, you could add the Managed Services upgrade to your package and our administrators will take care of the weekly OS updates.

Debian in Dedicated Servers

32-bit and 64-bit editions of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you're able to select all of them with only a single click for your new machine, based on what software environment the applications which you wish to use require for top notch performance. You may also choose if our Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on the server or whether it should come without any Control Panel at all. The first option is suitable for less experienced users who want a Debian-powered server, yet wish to control it like a shared website hosting account, whereas the second option is good for more advanced users who want to have more control, as ‘no Control Panel' means only Debian and the Apache web server software, but no other software set up on the server at all. We'll also save your time and effort with the Managed Services upgrade, as it includes routine Operating System updates, so that you'll have a secure and stable Debian installation.
