Debian is an OS which uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually set up on personal computers, it's 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 among the most secure Operating Systems available, since security patches are released within days after a problem is discovered. 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, but they also provide 24/7 support through special e-mail lists and respond within 20 minutes to any kind of question. In this light, you will enjoy an outstanding level of 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 several Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. As the Operating System is absolutely free to use, you'll be able to modify both the core as well as any of the packages in the way you see fit. In addition, you will not be required to pay any kind of license fees.

Debian in VPS

You are able to get a Debian-powered virtual private server with all of our VPS solutions and you'll be able to choose if the version which will be installed throughout the server setup process should be 32-bit or 64-bit. In this way, you will ensure that the software environment will match the system requirements of the apps which you want to run and that the latter will run effectively. Throughout the order process, you can also decide if the VPS will come with the Hepsia Control Panel or without any Control Panel at all. The first option will give you an easy-to-use graphical interface, via which you'll be able to manage everything related to your world wide web presence using only an Internet browser - files, e-mails, databases, etc. Without Control Panel at hand, you'll have to make everything through a console, however you'll have full root access and you'll be able to set up any software that may not be supported by Hepsia. You may also add the optional Managed Services package, which includes regular Operating System updates.

Debian in Dedicated Hosting

You will be able to pick the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server with only a mouse click on our registration page and based on your choice, we will set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS on the machine, so that the software that you'll install later will perform in the best possible way. Choosing a server devoid of Control Panel, you will receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you're able to control everything through a console. A server that's acquired with the Hepsia Control Panel will include all the software that you may need for your Internet sites. Though with the latter option the root access is limited, you will be able to manage the server as if it were a shared hosting account, thus you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you have no previous experience with this kind of website hosting service. If you buy our Managed Services upgrade, we will maintain your server and will update its OS weekly so as to make sure that you have the most current and most secure edition.
