Debian is an OS which uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually installed on desktops, it is being used on more and more web servers as well. The reason is that it's very stable, so a server running it won't need to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being one of the most secure Operating Systems to choose from, as security patches are released within days after a problem is discovered. This is possible since thousands of experienced 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 through special mailing lists and respond within twenty minutes to any kind of question. Thus, you will obtain top-level support directly from the developers who know their own platform in depth, and not from a third-party support team. Debian is also one of 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 the packages in the way you see fit. Also, you won't have to pay any kind of license fees.

Debian in VPS Servers

There are several Operating Systems that we supply with our Linux VPS servers and Debian is one of them, therefore if you need a server with this Operating System, you'll be able to get one in under 1 hour. We also offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS to ensure that the VPS you will get will fully cover the system requirements of any web or offline app that you want to install on the server. Managing the content on the server can be done in two ways, depending on the choice you make on the order page. Without a Control Panel, you'll be able to do everything on your Debian-equipped server using Secure Shell, as you will have root-level access, whereas through the Hepsia Control Panel, the root access will have certain limitations, but you will be able to do everything through your Internet browser using a handy web interface, even when you aren't very experienced. When you use the optional Managed Services package that we supply, we can also keep your Debian OS updated every week, saving you effort and time.

Debian in Dedicated Servers

32-bit and 64-bit versions of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you can select any of them with only a single click for your brand new server, based on what software environment the apps which you want to use require for the best performance. You can also choose whether our Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on the server or if it should come without Control Panel at all. The first option is suitable for less experienced users who need a Debian-powered server, but wish to control it like a shared website hosting account, while the second option is suitable for more experienced users who want to have more control, since ‘no Control Panel' means only Debian and the Apache web server software, and 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 comes with regular Operating System updates, to ensure that you'll have a secure and stable Debian installation.
