Debian is an Operating System which uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually set up on desktops, it's being used on an increasing number of web servers as well. The reason is that it is really stable, so a server running it will not have to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be one of the most risk-free Operating Systems nowadays, as security patches are released within days after an issue is discovered. This is possible since thousands of skilled developers are working for the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, but they also provide 24/7 support via special mailing lists and respond within twenty minutes to any question. Thus, you'll obtain 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 several Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. Since the Operating System costs nothing to use, you're able to modify both the core as well as all of the packages in the way you see fit. Also, you won't need to pay any kind of license fees.

Debian in VPS Servers

There're a few Operating Systems that we provide with our VPS servers and Debian is one of them, therefore when you'd like to have a server with this Operating System, you can get one in under 1 hour. We also offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS to ensure that the VPS you'll obtain will completely cover the system requirements of any kind of web or offline application that you would like to install on the server. Controlling the content on the server can be performed in two ways, depending on the choice you make on the order page. With no Control Panel, you will be able to do everything on your Debian-equipped server using Secure Shell, as you'll have root-level access, whereas through the Hepsia Control Panel, the root access will have certain restrictions, but you can do everything from your web browser using a handy web interface, even if you are not very experienced. When you use the optional Managed Services package which we supply, we'll also keep your Debian OS up to date weekly, saving you time and effort.

Debian in Dedicated Servers

32-bit and 64-bit editions of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you'll be able to select any of them with only a mouse click for your brand new server, depending on what software environment the apps which you plan to use require for the best performance. You can also choose whether our Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on the server or if it should come with no Control Panel at all. The first option is made for inexperienced users who need a Debian-powered server, but wish to control it like a shared website hosting account, whereas the second option is suitable for more experienced users who wish to have more control, because ‘no Control Panel' means only Debian and the Apache web server software, and no other software set up on the server whatsoever. We will 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.
