Debian is an Operating System which uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually set up on desktop machines, it's being used on more and more web servers too. The reason is that it's 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 safe Operating Systems nowadays, since security patches are released within days after a problem is discovered. This is possible since thousands of qualified developers are part of the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, they also provide 24/7 support via special mailing lists and respond within 20 min to any kind of 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 among the Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. As the Operating System is completely free to use, you will be 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

There are several Operating Systems that we provide with our VPS packages and Debian is among them, therefore if you'd like to have a server with this OS, you can have one in under 1 hour. We also offer 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS to ensure that the VPS you'll receive will fully cover the system requirements of any kind of web or offline app that you need to install on the server. Controlling the content on the server can be done in two ways, depending on the choice you make on the order page. Without a Control Panel, you will be able to do everything on your Debian-equipped server using Secure Shell, as you will have root-level access, whereas using the Hepsia Control Panel, the root access will have some limitations, but you will be able to do everything from your browser using a handy web interface, even when you are not very experienced. With the optional Managed Services package that we offer, we'll also maintain your Debian OS updated weekly, saving you effort and time.

Debian in Dedicated Hosting

You are able to choose the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server with just a mouse click on our order page and according to your choice, we'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS on your machine, so that the software that you will install later will perform in the right way. Choosing a server without any Control Panel, you'll receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you are able to control everything through a console. A server that's acquired with the Hepsia Control Panel will come with all the software which you will need for your web sites. Although with the latter option the root access is limited, you will be able to control the server as if it were a shared website hosting account, so that you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you have no previous experience with this kind of hosting service. When you get our Managed Services upgrade, we will maintain your server and will update its OS weekly to make sure that you have the latest and most risk-free edition.
