Debian is an OS which uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually set up on desktops, it is 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 among the most protected Operating Systems you can get, because security patches are released within days after an issue is found. This is possible because thousands of well-trained developers are part of the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, in addition, they provide 24/7 support by using special mailing lists and reply in 20 min to any kind of question. Thus, you will get an outstanding level of 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. As the Operating System is completely free to use, you can modify both the core as well as all of the packages in the way you see fit. Also, you will not need to pay any kind of license fees.

Debian in VPS Servers

You will be able to pick the Debian Operating System with each and every VPS server plan that we offer. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are among the options that you can find on the order page, which means that you can pick the one that is more suitable for the software that you would like to set up and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be installed either without any Control Panel or with our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you'll have more freedom, because you will have full root access and you'll be able to use the advantages and the full functionality supplied by Debian. In the second case, the root access is restricted, but you are able to control your website content via a web interface, not a console. If you do not have much time to take care of your Debian-powered server, or if you don't have a lot of experience, you're able to add the Managed Services upgrade to your package and our admins will handle the regular OS updates.

Debian in Dedicated Servers

32-bit and 64-bit releases of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you will be able to choose all of them with only a mouse click for your brand new server, depending on what software environment the applications that you would like to use require for the best performance. You may also choose if our Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on the server or whether it should come without Control Panel at all. The first option is made for inexperienced users who want a Debian-powered server, yet wish to control it like a shared web hosting account, while the second option is good for more advanced 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 you time and effort with the Managed Services upgrade, since it features routine Operating System updates, so that you will have a safe and stable Debian installation.
