Debian is an Operating System which uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually installed on desktop computers, it is being used on more and more web servers as well. The reason is that it is really stable, so a server running it won't have to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be one of the most risk-free Operating Systems to be found, because security patches are released within days after an issue is found. This is possible because thousands of skilled 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 via special mailing lists and reply in twenty minutes to any question. Thus, you will get 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. As the Operating System costs nothing to use, you will be able to modify both the core as well as any of the packages in the way you see fit. Furthermore, you will not have to pay any license fees.
Debian in VPS Servers
You are able to acquire a Debian-powered VPS server with any of our VPS packages and you'll be able to choose if the version that will be installed during the server setup process will be 32-bit or 64-bit. This way, you will ensure that the software environment will meet the requirements of the applications which you wish to run and that the latter will work effectively. Throughout the order process, you may also select whether the VPS will come with the Hepsia Control Panel or with no Control Panel at all. The first option provides you with an easy-to-work-with graphical interface, through that you are able to manage everything related to your online presence using only a web browser - files, e-mail accounts, databases, and the like. Without Control Panel at hand, you'll need to make everything through a console, yet you will have full root access and you can install any software that may not be supported by Hepsia. You may also add our optional Managed Services package, which includes weekly Operating System updates.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You're able to choose the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with only a click on our order page and according to your choice, we'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS on the machine, so that the software that you will install later will perform in the optimal way. Selecting a server without Control Panel, you'll get Debian and the Apache web server software and you'll be able to control everything using a console. A server that is ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel will feature all of the software which you may need for your sites. Even though with the latter option the root access will be limited, you can control the server as if it were a shared website hosting account, which means that you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you don't have previous experience with this type of web hosting service. If you purchase the Managed Services upgrade, we'll maintain your server and will update its OS weekly so as to make sure that you have the most recent and most risk-free release.
