Debian is an OS that uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually installed on personal computers, it's being used on a growing number of web servers as well. The reason is that it is 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 risk-free Operating Systems nowadays, as security patches are released within days after an issue is found. This is possible because thousands of well-trained developers are part of 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 reply within 20 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 the Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. As the Operating System is free to use, you'll be able to modify both the core as well as all the packages in any way you see fit. Furthermore, you won't have to pay any license fees.

Debian in VPS Servers

If you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the VPS server plans that we offer and select this Operating System on the registration page. You'll be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release, since we give you the option to select the more appropriate one, based on the software which you'd like to install on your server once it's up and running. If you're more tech-savvy, you may get a Debian-powered VPS without a Control Panel, so you will have full root access and you will be able to manage the content and the software through SSH. If you are less experienced, yet you would like to use an application that requires Debian, you'll be able to choose the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page and you will be able to manage the whole server like a standard shared web hosting account. You may also take full advantage of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we offer, because it includes weekly Operating System updates done by our administrators, among other useful things.

Debian in Dedicated Servers

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