Debian is an Operating System that uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually installed on desktop machines, it's being used on an increasing number of web servers too. The reason is that it is really stable, so a server running it will not have to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being one of the most safe Operating Systems nowadays, because security patches are released within days after an issue is found. This is possible because thousands of qualified developers work 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 respond within 20 min to any question. Thus, you will get top-notch 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 releases with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. As the Operating System is completely free to use, you're able to modify both the core as well as any of the packages in the way you see fit. Furthermore, you won't have to pay any license fees.

Debian in VPS Web Hosting

When 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 order page. You can select the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version, as we give you the option to choose the right one, based on the software that you'd like to install on your server once it's up and running. In case you are more tech-savvy, you can get a Debian-powered VPS with no Control Panel, and you will have full root access and you'll be able to manage the content and the software using SSH. If you are less experienced, but you'd like to use an app that requires Debian, you are able to pick our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel on the order page and you will be able to manage the entire server like a standard shared hosting account. You may also take advantage of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we offer, since it comes with weekly Operating System updates done by our admins, among many other useful things.

Debian in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You will be able to select the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server with a mouse click on our registration page and based on your choice, we'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS on your machine, to ensure that the software that you will install later will work in the best way. Using a server without any Control Panel, you will get Debian and the Apache web server software and you will be able to manage everything using a console. A server that's acquired with our Hepsia Control Panel will come with all the software that you'll need for your web sites. Even though with the latter option the root access is limited, you will be able to manage the server as if it were a shared web hosting account, so that you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you do not have previous experience with this kind of hosting service. If you buy our Managed Services upgrade, we will take care of your server and will update its OS weekly in order to make sure that you have the most recent and most secure release.
