Debian is an OS that uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually set up on desktop machines, it is being used on more and more web servers too. The reason is that it is really stable, so a server running it won't have to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be among the most safe Operating Systems out there, because security patches are released within days after an issue is found. This is possible since thousands of qualified developers are employed by the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, they also provide 24/7 support through special e-mail lists and respond in 20 minutes to any question. Thus, you'll enjoy 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 several Linux releases with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. As the Operating System is completely free to use, you're able to modify both the core as well as all the packages in the way you see fit. In addition, you will not be required to pay any license fees.

Debian in VPS

There are several Operating Systems that we provide with our VPS and Debian is one of them, which means that if you need a server with this OS, you'll be able to obtain one in less than an hour. In addition, we offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS to make sure that the VPS you'll obtain will fully cover the system requirements of any web or offline app which you would like to install on the server. Controlling the content on the server can be done in two ways, according to the choice you make on the order page. Without a Control Panel, you can do everything on your Debian-equipped server using Secure Shell, as you'll have root-level access, while through the Hepsia Control Panel, the root access will have certain restrictions, but you will be able to do everything from your web browser using an intuitive web interface, even when you aren't very experienced. With the optional Managed Services package that we offer, we'll also keep your Debian OS up to date on a weekly basis, saving you effort and time.

Debian in Dedicated Hosting

You're able to select the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server with a single click on our registration page and according to your choice, we will install the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS on your machine, to ensure that the software that you'll install later will perform in the optimal way. Choosing a server devoid of Control Panel, you will receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you'll be able to control everything through a console. A server which is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel will come with all the software which you will need for your sites. Although with the latter option the root access will be limited, you will be able to manage the server as if it were a shared web hosting account, which means that you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you have no previous experience with this type of website hosting service. When you purchase our Managed Services upgrade, we'll maintain your server and will update its OS on a weekly basis so as to make sure that you have the latest and most secure version.
