Debian is an Operating System which uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually installed on desktops, 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 won't need to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being one of the most safe Operating Systems you can get, as security patches are released within days after an issue is discovered. This is possible because thousands of experienced developers work for 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 e-mail lists and respond in 20 minutes to any kind of question. In this light, you will enjoy top-level 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 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 and all the packages in any way you see fit. Furthermore, you will not need to pay any kind of license fees.

Debian in VPS

You'll be able to obtain a Debian-powered virtual private server with all of our VPS plans and you will be able to choose if the version which will be installed throughout the server setup process will be 32-bit or 64-bit. This way, you'll make sure that the software environment will meet the system requirements of the applications which you wish to run and that the latter will work effectively. During the order process, you can also decide whether the VPS will come with our Hepsia Control Panel or with no Control Panel at all. The first option will provide you with an easy-to-work-with graphical interface, through that you will be able to control everything related to your online presence using only an Internet browser - files, e-mail accounts, databases, etc. With no Control Panel at hand, you'll need to do everything through a console, but you'll have full root access and you can set up any software that may not be supported by Hepsia. In addition, you can add the optional Managed Services package, which includes regular Operating System updates.

Debian in Dedicated Hosting

32-bit and 64-bit versions of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you're able to choose any of them with only a single click for your new machine, based on what software environment the apps which you plan to use require for the best performance. You may also select if our Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on the server or if it should come with no Control Panel at all. The first option is suitable for inexperienced users who want a Debian-powered server, but want to manage it like a shared hosting account, while the second option is suitable for more experienced users who would like to have more control, since ‘no Control Panel' stands for only Debian and the Apache web server software, but no other software set up on the server at all. We can also save your time and effort with the Managed Services upgrade, as it features regular Operating System updates, to ensure that you'll have a secure and stable Debian installation.
