Debian is an OS which uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually set up on desktop computers, it is being used on an increasing number of web servers too. 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 out there, since security patches are released within days after a problem is discovered. This is possible since thousands of skilled developers are employed by the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, but they also provide 24/7 support by using special e-mail lists and reply in 20 minutes to any kind of question. Thus, 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 one of the Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. Since the Operating System costs nothing to use, you can 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 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 offer and pick this Operating System on the order page. You will be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version, because we give you the option to choose the right one, according to the software that you want to install on your server once it is up and running. If you are more tech-savvy, you may get a Debian-powered VPS with no Control Panel, so you'll have full root access and you'll be able to control the content and the software through SSH. In case you are less experienced, but you'd like to use an app that requires Debian, you'll be able to select our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel on the order page and you'll be able to manage the whole server like a standard shared web hosting account. You may also benefit from the optional Managed Services upgrade that we offer, since it features weekly Operating System updates performed by our admins, among other useful things.

Debian in Dedicated Servers

32-bit and 64-bit releases of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you are able to select all of them with just a click for your brand new machine, based on what software environment the apps that you wish to use require for top notch performance. You can also choose whether our Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on the server or whether it should come without Control Panel at all. The first option is suitable for less experienced users who want a Debian-powered server, yet want to manage it like a shared web hosting account, while the second option is suitable for more advanced users who need to have more control, due to the fact that ‘no Control Panel' stands for only Debian and the Apache web server software, and no other software set up on the server whatsoever. We can also save you time and effort with the Managed Services upgrade, since it features routine Operating System updates, to ensure that you'll have a safe and stable Debian installation.
