Debian is an OS that uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually installed on personal computers, it's being used on an increasing number of web servers as well. The reason is that it is very stable, so a server running it will not need to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being one of the most secure Operating Systems you can get, since security patches are released within days after a problem is discovered. This is possible since thousands of skilled 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 via special e-mail lists and reply in 20 minutes to any 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 - more than 30,000. As the Operating System costs nothing to use, you're able to modify both the core as well as all the packages in any way you see fit. Also, you will not be required to pay any kind of license fees.

Debian in VPS Servers

You are able to acquire a Debian-powered VPS server with any of our VPS solutions and you can choose if the version which will be installed during the server setup process should be 32-bit or 64-bit. Thus, you can ensure that the software environment will meet the system requirements of the apps which you want to run and that the latter will run effectively. During the order process, you can also select if the VPS will come with the Hepsia Control Panel or without Control Panel at all. The first option will provide you with an easy-to-use graphical interface, via that you will be able to manage everything related to your web presence using only a web browser - files, email accounts, databases, and many more. Without Control Panel at hand, you will need to do everything via a console, yet you'll have full root access and you can set up any kind of software that may not be supported by Hepsia. You may also add the optional Managed Services package, which includes weekly Operating System updates.

Debian in Dedicated Servers

You're able to select the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with only a single click on our registration page and based on your choice, we'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS on your machine, so that the software that you will install later will perform in the best way. With a server without Control Panel, you'll get Debian and the Apache web server software and you'll be able to control everything using a console. A server which is obtained with our Hepsia Control Panel will feature all of the software which you will need for your websites. Even though with the latter option the root access is limited, you'll be able to manage the server as if it were a shared website hosting account, thus you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you do not have previous expertise in this kind of web hosting service. If you get the Managed Services upgrade, we'll maintain your server and will update its OS on a weekly basis in order to ensure that you have the most current and most risk-free version.
