Debian is an OS which uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually installed on desktops, it is being used on a growing number of web servers as well. The reason is that it's 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 available, because security patches are released within days after a problem is found. This is possible since thousands of skilled 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 respond in twenty minutes to any question. Thus, you'll have 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 several Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. As the Operating System is absolutely free to use, you will be able to modify both the core as well as all the packages in the way you see fit. Also, you won't have to pay any license fees.

Debian in VPS

You're able to select the Debian Operating System with each virtual private server plan that we provide. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are among the options that you'll find on the order page, so you can pick the one that is more suitable for the software that you'd like to set up and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be installed either devoid of Control Panel or with our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you'll have more freedom, considering that you will have full root access and you'll be able to make use of the advantages and the full functionality provided by Debian. In the second case, the root access is limited, but you can control your online content via a web interface, not a console. In case you do not have a lot of time to maintain your Debian-powered server, or if you don't have substantial experience, you could add the Managed Services upgrade to your package and our administrators will take care of the weekly OS updates.

Debian in Dedicated Hosting

32-bit and 64-bit releases of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you'll be able to select any of them with just a mouse click for your new server, based on what software environment the applications that you want to use require for the best performance. You can also select whether our Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on the server or if it should come without any Control Panel at all. The first option is suitable for less experienced users who want a Debian-powered server, but want to manage it like a shared web hosting account, while the second option is suitable for more advanced users who need to have more control, as ‘no Control Panel' stands for only Debian and the Apache web server software, but no other software set up on the server at all. We can also save you time and effort with our Managed Services upgrade, because it features regular Operating System updates, to ensure that you'll have a secure and stable Debian installation.
