Debian is an OS which uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually installed on personal computers, it is being used on a growing number of web servers as well. The reason is that it is really stable, so a server running it will not need to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be among the most secure Operating Systems out there, since security patches are released within days after an issue is discovered. This is possible since thousands of well-experienced developers are working for the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, but they also provide 24/7 support through special mailing lists and respond in 20 minutes to any question. In this light, you will enjoy an outstanding level of 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 distributions with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. Since the Operating System is completely free to use, you can modify both the core and any of the packages in any way you see fit. In addition, you will not have to pay any kind of license fees.

Debian in VPS Web Hosting

If you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the virtual private server solutions that we offer and choose this Operating System on the order page. You will be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release, as we give you the option to choose the more appropriate one, based on the software that you want to install on your server once it's up and running. If you are more tech-savvy, you may get a Debian-powered VPS without a Control Panel, and you'll have full root access and you are able to control the content and the software through SSH. In case you are less experienced, but you'd like to use software that requires Debian, you can choose the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page and you'll be able to manage the whole server like a standard shared web hosting account. You can also reap the benefits of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we supply, since it features weekly Operating System updates performed by our admins, among various other useful things.

Debian in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Each dedicated server that we provide can be set up with Debian and we will test the software environment completely before we hand over your server in order to ensure that it will perform appropriately. You'll be able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release throughout the sign-up process, so that the apps which you install will be able to get the maximum out of your server. We will also maintain your OS up-to-date if you add the additional 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 like with the machine and you'll have full root-level access, but you will have to be more skillful, as all of the tasks will be performed using a Secure Shell console. When you acquire your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will have a web interface, via which you can manage domains, files, databases, etc, and this might be a better option if you are not very experienced, but a certain application that you would like to use requires Debian. You have access to your Hepsia-equipped server via SSH too, but the things that you're able to do are limited.
