Debian is an Operating System that uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually installed on personal computers, it is being used on a growing number of web servers too. The reason is that it's really stable, so a server running it won't need to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being one of the most protected Operating Systems to be found, because security patches are released within days after a problem is discovered. This is possible since thousands of well-trained developers are employed by 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 within twenty minutes to any kind of 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 the Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. Since the Operating System is free to use, you're able to modify both the core as well as all of the packages in the way you see fit. Also, you won't have to pay any license fees.

Debian in VPS Hosting

If you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the virtual private server plans that we supply and choose this Operating System on the registration page. You'll be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release, since we give you the option to pick the right one, depending on the software which you'd like to install on your server once it is up and running. When you're more tech-savvy, you may get a Debian-powered VPS without a Control Panel, so you'll have full root access and you're able to manage the content and the software through SSH. In case you are less experienced, yet you'd like to use software which requires Debian, you can select our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel on the order page and you will be able to manage the entire server like a standard shared hosting account. You can also take advantage of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we offer, since it includes once a week Operating System updates done by our admins, among various other useful things.

Debian in Dedicated Web Hosting

32-bit and 64-bit versions of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you can choose all of them with just a single click for your new machine, based on what software environment the apps which you plan to use require for optimal performance. You may also choose if our Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on the server or if it should come with no Control Panel at all. The first option is suitable for less experienced users who need a Debian-powered server, but would like to control it like a shared web hosting account, while the second option is suitable for more experienced users who need 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 whatsoever. We'll also save you time and effort with the Managed Services upgrade, as it comes with routine Operating System updates, so that you'll have a secure and stable Debian installation.
