Debian is an Operating System that uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually installed on desktop machines, 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 regarded as being one of the most safe Operating Systems you can get, because security patches are released within days after a problem is found. This is possible since thousands of well-trained developers work for the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, they also provide 24/7 support through special mailing lists and reply within 20 min to any kind of question. Thus, you will obtain 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 free to use, you'll be able to modify both the core as well as all of the packages in any way you see fit. Also, you will not need to pay any license fees.

Debian in VPS Servers

When you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the VPS server solutions that we supply and pick this Operating System on the registration page. You can select the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version, since we give you the option to pick the right one, based on the software that you would like to install on your server once it's up and running. If you are more tech-savvy, you may get a Debian-powered VPS with no Control Panel, and you'll have full root access and you'll be able to control the content and the software using SSH. In case you are less experienced, but you would like to use an application which requires Debian, you'll be able to choose our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel on the order page and you will be able to manage the whole server like a standard shared hosting account. In addition, you can benefit from the optional Managed Services upgrade that we supply, since it includes once a week Operating System updates performed by our admins, among various other useful things.

Debian in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that we supply can be installed with Debian and we'll test the software environment thoroughly before we hand over the machine to make sure that it'll perform properly. You're able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version during the signup process, so the applications which you install can get the maximum out of your server. We can also maintain your OS up-to-date when you add the optional Managed Services package to your plan. When you obtain your Debian-driven server without a website hosting Control Panel, you will be able to do anything you want with the machine and you will have full root-level access, but you'll need to be more experienced, as all the tasks will be performed using a Secure Shell console. When you order your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you'll receive a web interface, through which you'll be able to control domains, files, databases, etcetera, and this might be the best option in case you aren't very experienced, but a specific app that you would like to use requires Debian. You can access your Hepsia-equipped server via SSH as well, but the things which you will be able to do are restricted.
