Debian is an OS that uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually installed on desktop machines, it is being used on more and more web servers as well. 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 protected Operating Systems nowadays, due to the fact that security patches are released within days after an issue is found. This is possible since 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 by using special e-mail lists and respond within twenty minutes to any kind of question. Thus, you will receive 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 among the Linux releases with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. As the Operating System is absolutely free to use, you are able to modify both the core as well as all the packages in the way you see fit. Furthermore, you won't need to pay any license fees.

Debian in VPS Servers

If you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the VPS server packages that we offer and pick this Operating System on the registration page. You can pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version, as we give you the option to select the right one, based on the software that you want to install on your server once it is up and running. If you are more tech-savvy, you may get a Debian-powered VPS with no Control Panel, so that you will have full root access and you'll be able to manage the content and the software using SSH. If you are less experienced, but you'd like to use an application that requires Debian, you are able to select our Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page and you'll be able to manage the whole server like a standard shared hosting account. In addition, you can take full advantage of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we provide, as it includes regular Operating System updates done by our administrators, among many other useful things.

Debian in Dedicated Servers

You can choose the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server with a single click on our registration page and based on your choice, we'll install the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS on the machine, to ensure that the software that you will install later will perform in the best way. Choosing a server without any Control Panel, you will get Debian and the Apache web server software and you can manage everything through a console. A server that is acquired with our Hepsia Control Panel will include all of the software which you'll need for your sites. Even though with the latter option the root access is limited, you can control the server as if it were a shared website hosting account, therefore you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you do not have previous expertise in this type of website hosting service. If you purchase our Managed Services upgrade, we'll take care of your server and will update its OS on a weekly basis so as to make sure that you have the most current and most secure release.
