Debian is an OS that uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually set up on desktop machines, it's being used on a growing number of web servers too. 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 risk-free Operating Systems in existence, because security patches are released within days after a problem is found. 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, in addition, they provide 24/7 support via special e-mail lists and respond within 20 min to any kind of question. Thus, you'll get 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 free to use, you will be able to modify both the core as well as any of the packages in any way you see fit. Also, you won't be required to pay any kind of license fees.

Debian in VPS Servers

There're several Operating Systems that we provide with our VPS servers and Debian is one of them, so if you'd like to have a server with this OS, you'll be able to have one in less than an hour. In addition, we offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS to make sure that the VPS you'll have will fully cover the system requirements of any kind of web or offline app that you intend to install on the server. Controlling the content on the server can be performed in two ways, according to the choice you make on the order page. With no Control Panel, you'll be able to do everything on your Debian-equipped server using Secure Shell, as you will have root-level access, while with the Hepsia Control Panel, the root access will have certain limitations, but you'll be able to do everything through your web browser using a user-friendly web interface, even if you are not very experienced. With the optional Managed Services package which we offer, we will also maintain your Debian OS up to date every week, saving you time and effort.

Debian in Dedicated Servers

You're able to pick the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server with a mouse click on our order page and based on your choice, we will set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS on your machine, so that the software that you'll install later will work in the right way. With a server devoid of Control Panel, you'll get Debian and the Apache web server software and you can manage everything using a console. A server that's ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel will come with all the software that you'll need for your web sites. Although with the latter option the root access will be restricted, you're able to control the server as if it were a shared website hosting account, which means that you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you have no previous experience with this type of hosting service. When you get our Managed Services upgrade, we will maintain your server and will update its OS every week to make sure that you have the most recent and most secure release.
