Debian is an OS which uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually installed on desktops, it is being used on a growing number of web servers too. The reason is that it is very stable, so a server running it won't have to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be among the most safe Operating Systems to be found, due to the fact that security patches are released within days after an issue is discovered. 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 e-mail lists and respond within 20 min to any kind of question. Thus, you'll have top-notch support directly from the developers who know their own platform in detail, and not from a third-party support team. Debian is also among the Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. Since the Operating System costs nothing to use, you can modify both the core as well as all of the packages in any way you see fit. In addition, you will not have to pay any license fees.

Debian in VPS

When you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the virtual private server solutions that we offer and select this Operating System on the registration page. You'll be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release, because we give you the option to select the more appropriate one, depending on the software that you'd like to install on your server once it's set up. When you're more tech-savvy, you may get a Debian-powered VPS with no Control Panel, so that you will have full root access and you can manage the content and the software using SSH. If you are less experienced, yet you would like to use an app which requires Debian, you will be able to choose the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel on the order page and you can manage the entire server like a standard shared hosting account. You may also benefit from the optional Managed Services upgrade that we offer, since it features weekly Operating System updates performed by our admins, among other useful things.

Debian in Dedicated Hosting

32-bit and 64-bit releases of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you are able to choose all of them with just a single click for your new machine, based on what software environment the apps that you plan to use require for optimal performance. You can also select if our Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on the server or if it should come without Control Panel at all. The first option is made for inexperienced users who need a Debian-powered server, yet would like to control it like a shared hosting account, while the second option is good for more advanced users who wish to have more control, due to the fact that ‘no Control Panel' stands for only Debian and the Apache web server software, but no other software set up on the server at all. We can also save your time and effort with the Managed Services upgrade, since it includes regular Operating System updates, to ensure that you'll have a secure and stable Debian installation.
