Debian is an Operating System which uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually set up on desktop computers, it is being used on an increasing number of web servers too. The reason is that it is really stable, so a server running it will not need to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being among the most safe Operating Systems in existence, since security patches are released within days after a problem 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, but they also provide 24/7 support via special e-mail lists and reply within 20 min to any question. Thus, you'll receive 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 one of several Linux releases with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. Since the Operating System is absolutely free to use, you'll be able to modify both the core as well as all the packages in any way you see fit. Furthermore, you will not have to pay any kind of license fees.

Debian in VPS Servers

You'll be able to pick the Debian Operating System with each and every VPS server package that we supply. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of the options that you will find on the order page, so you can pick the one that will be more suitable for the software that you need to install and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be installed either with no Control Panel or with our tailor-made Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you have more freedom, as you will have full root access and you will be able to take advantage of the advantages and the full functionality supplied by Debian. In the second case, the root access will be limited, but you will be able to control your online content through a web interface, not a console. If you do not have much time to maintain your Debian-powered server, or if you do not have a lot of experience, you can add the Managed Services upgrade to your package and our admins will take care of the regular OS updates.

Debian in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that we offer can be set up with Debian and we'll test the program environment thoroughly before we hand over your machine so as to make sure that it will perform properly. You're able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release during the sign-up process, so that the apps that you install will be able to get the maximum out of your server. We can also keep your Operating System up-to-date when you add the optional Managed Services package to your plan. If you acquire your Debian-driven server without a web hosting Control Panel, you will be able to do anything you like with your machine and you'll have full root-level access, however you'll need to be more experienced, since all the tasks will be performed through a Secure Shell console. When you order your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll get a web interface, through which you can control domains, files, databases, and many others, and this might be the best option in case you are not very experienced, and a specific app which you need to use requires Debian. You will have access to your Hepsia-equipped server through SSH too, but the things which you will be able to do will be restricted.
