Debian is an OS that uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually set up on desktop computers, it's 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 regarded as being among the most safe Operating Systems to choose from, since security patches are released within days after a problem is discovered. This is possible since thousands of experienced developers are part of the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, but they also provide 24/7 support through special e-mail lists and respond in 20 minutes to any kind of question. Thus, you will have 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 one of several Linux releases with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. Since the Operating System is completely free to use, you can modify both the core and any of the packages in the way you see fit. Also, you won't have to pay any kind of license fees.

Debian in VPS Servers

You can get a Debian-powered VPS server with any of our VPS plans and you'll be able to choose if the version which will be installed during the server setup process will be 32-bit or 64-bit. Thus, you will guarantee that the software environment will meet the requirements of the apps which you wish to run and that the latter will run correctly. During the order process, you may also decide if the VPS will come with our Hepsia Control Panel or with no Control Panel at all. The first option will provide you with an easy to navigate graphical interface, through which you're able to control everything related to your web presence using only an Internet browser - files, email accounts, databases, etc. Without Control Panel at hand, you will have to do everything via a console, but you will have full root access and you'll be able to set up any kind of software that may not be supported by Hepsia. In addition, you can add our optional Managed Services package, which includes regular Operating System updates.

Debian in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that we provide can be installed with Debian and we'll test the program environment carefully before we hand over your machine in order to ensure that it'll perform perfectly. You can pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release during the registration process, so that the apps which you set up can get the maximum out of your server. We will also keep your Operating System up-to-date when you add the additional Managed Services package to your plan. If you get your Debian-driven server without a web hosting Control Panel, you can do anything you want with the machine and you will have full root-level access, yet you'll need to be more skillful, since all of the tasks will be performed using a Secure Shell console. If you obtain your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll get a web interface, through which you can manage domains, files, databases, etcetera, and this might be the best option in case you are not very experienced, but a certain application that you intend to use requires Debian. You have access to your Hepsia-equipped server via SSH too, yet the things that you can do are restricted.
