Debian is an OS which uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually installed on personal computers, it's being used on an increasing number of web servers as well. The reason is that it's very stable, so a server running it will not have to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be among the most secure Operating Systems out there, since security patches are released within days after an issue is discovered. This is possible since thousands of qualified 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 via special e-mail lists and respond within 20 minutes to any kind of question. Thus, you will enjoy top-level 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 several Linux releases with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. As the Operating System is absolutely free to use, you are able to modify both the core and all the packages in any way you see fit. Also, you will not need 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 plans that we supply and pick this Operating System on the order page. You can select the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version, as we give you the option to choose the right one, depending on the software which you would like to install on your server once it is set up. If you are more tech-savvy, you may get a Debian-powered VPS without a Control Panel, so you'll have full root access and you're able to control the content and the software using SSH. In case you are less experienced, yet you would like to use an app that requires Debian, you are able to choose our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel on the order page and you'll be able to 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, because it comes with weekly Operating System updates performed by our admins, among many other useful things.

Debian in Dedicated Servers

Each and every dedicated server that we offer can be installed with Debian and we will test the software environment thoroughly before we hand over your machine to make sure that it will perform appropriately. You can choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version during the sign-up process, so that the apps which you set up can get the maximum out of your server. We will also keep your OS up-to-date when you add the additional Managed Services package to your plan. If you order your Debian-driven server without a hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to do anything you want with your machine and you'll have full root-level access, however you'll have to be more experienced, because all of the tasks will be performed through a Secure Shell console. When you order your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll have a web interface, via which you can control domains, files, databases, etc, and this might be the best option when you aren't very experienced, but a particular app that you would like to use requires Debian. You'll have access to your Hepsia-equipped server through SSH as well, however the things that you'll be able to do are restricted.
