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's very stable, so a server running it will not have to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be one of the most safe Operating Systems to choose from, because security patches are released within days after an issue is found. This is possible because 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 mailing lists and respond in twenty minutes to any kind of question. In this light, you will receive an outstanding level of 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 distributions with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. Since 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. Also, you won't need to pay any license fees.

Debian in VPS Hosting

You will be able to acquire a Debian-powered virtual private server with any of our VPS plans and you will be able to choose if the version which will be installed throughout the server setup process should be 32-bit or 64-bit. Thus, you will make sure that the software environment will meet the requirements of the applications which you wish to run and that the latter will work properly. Throughout the order process, you may also decide if the VPS will come with our Hepsia Control Panel or with no Control Panel at all. The first option provides you with an intuitive graphical interface, via which you can control everything related to your world wide web presence using only a web browser - files, email addresses, databases, etc. Without Control Panel at hand, you will need to do everything through a console, however you will have full root access and you can install any software that may not be supported by Hepsia. You can also add our optional Managed Services package, that includes weekly Operating System updates.

Debian in Dedicated Web Hosting

You will be able to choose the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with only a single click on our registration page and depending on your choice, we'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS on the machine, to ensure that the software that you'll install later will perform in the best possible way. Picking a server devoid of Control Panel, you'll receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you'll be able to control everything using a console. A server that is obtained with our Hepsia Control Panel will come with all the software that you'll need for your web sites. Though with the latter option the root access is limited, you'll be able to manage 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 web hosting service. If you get our Managed Services upgrade, we'll maintain your server and will update its OS weekly so as to make sure that you have the latest and most secure version.
