Debian is an Operating System which uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually set up on desktop computers, it is being used on a growing number of web servers too. The reason is that it's really stable, so a server running it won't need to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be one of the most safe Operating Systems you can get, due to the fact that security patches are released within days after an issue is found. This is possible since thousands of experienced developers are working 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 through special e-mail lists and reply in 20 minutes to any kind of question. In this light, you'll obtain 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 - more than 30,000. As the Operating System is free to use, you're able to modify both the core as well as all the packages in any way you see fit. In addition, you will not have to pay any license fees.

Debian in VPS Servers

You'll be able to acquire a Debian-powered VPS server with any of our VPS plans and you'll be able to choose if the version that will be installed throughout the server setup process will be 32-bit or 64-bit. This way, you'll guarantee that the software environment will meet the system requirements of the applications which you want to run and that the latter will work efficiently. During the order process, you can also decide whether the VPS will come with our Hepsia Control Panel or without a Control Panel at all. The first option provides you with an intuitive graphical interface, through which you will be able to control everything related to your web presence using only a web browser - files, e-mail addresses, databases, etcetera. Without a Control Panel at hand, you will have to do everything via a console, yet you will have full root access and you'll be able to install any software that may not be compatible with Hepsia. You may also add the optional Managed Services package, which includes weekly Operating System updates.

Debian in Dedicated Servers

You'll be able to choose the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with just a mouse click on our registration page and depending on your choice, we'll install the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS on the machine, to ensure that the software that you'll install later will work in the optimal way. Picking a server without Control Panel, you will get Debian and the Apache web server software and you are able to control everything through a console. A server that's obtained with the Hepsia Control Panel will include all the software that you'll need for your websites. Although with the latter option the root access is restricted, you're able to control the server as if it were a shared hosting account, which means that you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you do not have previous expertise in this type of website hosting service. If you buy our Managed Services upgrade, we'll take care of your server and will update its OS on a weekly basis to ensure that you have the most current and most secure release.
