Debian is an Operating System that uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually set up on desktops, it is being used on an increasing number of web servers as well. The reason is that it's really stable, so a server running it will not have to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be one of the most risk-free Operating Systems to be found, as security patches are released within days after an issue is found. This is possible because thousands of qualified developers are part of 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 mailing lists and reply in twenty minutes to any question. In this light, you will receive an outstanding level of 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 distributions with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. Since the Operating System is free to use, you're able to modify both the core and any of the packages in the way you see fit. Furthermore, you will not be required to pay any license fees.

Debian in VPS

If you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the virtual private server packages that we supply and choose this Operating System on the order page. You'll be able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release, as we give you the option to choose the right one, depending on the software that 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 with no Control Panel, and you will have full root access and you'll be able to manage the content and the software through SSH. In case you are less experienced, yet you'd like to use an app which requires Debian, you will be able to select our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel on the order page and you will be able to manage the entire server like a standard shared web hosting account. You can also take advantage of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we provide, as it includes regular Operating System updates done by our administrators, among other useful things.

Debian in Dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to pick the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server with just a click on our registration page and according to your choice, we will set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS on your machine, to ensure that the software that you will install later will work in the best possible way. Choosing a server devoid of Control Panel, you will receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you are able to control everything through a console. A server that is ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel will come with all of the software that you may need for your websites. Although with the latter option the root access is restricted, you are 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 the Managed Services upgrade, we'll take care of your server and will update its OS weekly to make sure that you have the most recent and most risk-free release.
