Debian is an Operating System which uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually set up on desktop computers, it's being used on more and more 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 regarded as being one of the most secure Operating Systems available, as security patches are released within days after an issue is discovered. This is possible because thousands of qualified developers are part of 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 reply in 20 min to any question. In this light, you'll receive top-notch 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 releases with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. As the Operating System is completely free to use, you are able to modify both the core as well as any of the packages in any way you see fit. In addition, you won't be required to pay any license fees.

Debian in VPS Servers

You can choose the Debian Operating System with each VPS server plan that we offer. 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options that you can find on the order page, which means that you can select the one that will be more suitable for the software that you would like to install and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be installed either devoid of Control Panel or with our tailor-made Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you'll have more freedom, since you will have full root access and you're able to take advantage of the advantages and the full functionality supplied by Debian. In the second case, the root access will be restricted, but you'll be able to manage your website content via a web interface, not a console. In case you don't have much time to command your Debian-powered server, or in case you do not have a lot of experience, you could add the Managed Services upgrade to your package and our admins will take care of the regular OS updates.

Debian in Dedicated Servers

Each and every dedicated server that we provide can be installed with Debian and we'll test the program environment in depth before we hand over the machine to make sure that it will perform perfectly. You'll be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release throughout the signup process, so that the applications which you install can get the maximum out of your server. We will also keep your Operating System up-to-date if you add the optional Managed Services package to your plan. In case you obtain your Debian-driven server without a web hosting Control Panel, you will be able to do anything you want with the machine and you'll have full root-level access, yet you'll have to be more skillful, as all of the tasks will be performed through a Secure Shell console. If you get your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you'll get a web interface, through which you will be able to control domains, files, databases, etcetera, and this might be a better option in case you are not very experienced, and a particular application which you'd like to use requires Debian. You can access your Hepsia-equipped server via SSH as well, yet the things which you'll be able to do are limited.
