Debian is an Operating System that uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually set up on personal computers, it is being used on a growing number of web servers too. The reason is that it's very stable, so a server running it won't have to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be one of the most risk-free Operating Systems to be found, due to the fact that security patches are released within days after a problem is discovered. This is possible since thousands of well-experienced developers work for the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, in addition, they provide 24/7 support via special mailing lists and reply within 20 min to any kind of question. Thus, you'll get top-level 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 releases with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. As the Operating System is free to use, you'll be able to modify both the core as well as all of the packages in the way you see fit. In addition, you will not need to pay any license fees.

Debian in VPS Web Hosting

You will be able to pick the Debian Operating System with each virtual private server solution that we provide. 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options that you'll find on the order page, which means that you can pick the one that will be more suitable for the software that you need to install and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be installed either without any Control Panel or with our custom Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you have more freedom, since you will have full root access and you can take advantage of the advantages and the full functionality supplied by Debian. In the second case, the root access will be restricted, however you're able to control your world wide web content via a web interface, not a console. If you do not have much time to maintain your Debian-powered server, or in case you do not have a lot of experience, you can add the Managed Services upgrade to your plan and our administrators will handle the regular OS updates.

Debian in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You can choose the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server with only a click on our registration page and according to your choice, we'll install the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS on the machine, so that the software that you'll install later will work in the optimal way. Selecting a server without Control Panel, you will receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you can control everything using a console. A server that is acquired with the Hepsia Control Panel will come with all the software which you may need for your Internet sites. Although with the latter option the root access is limited, you are able to control the server as if it were a shared website hosting account, thus you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you don't have previous expertise in this type of web hosting service. If you order our Managed Services upgrade, we will take care of your server and will update its OS on a weekly basis in order to ensure that you have the latest and most secure version.
