Debian is an Operating System that uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually set up on desktops, it is being used on an increasing number of web servers too. The reason is that it is very stable, so a server running it will not have to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be one of the most secure Operating Systems in existence, because security patches are released within days after a problem is found. This is possible since thousands of experienced developers work for the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, in addition, they provide 24/7 support through special mailing lists and respond within 20 minutes to any question. In this light, you'll have an outstanding level of support directly from the developers who know their own platform in depth, and not from a third-party support team. Debian is also among the Linux releases with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. Since the Operating System is completely free to use, you will be able to modify both the core and any of the packages in any way you see fit. In addition, you won't be required to pay any license fees.
Debian in VPS Servers
When you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the VPS server plans that we provide and select this Operating System on the order page. You can select the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release, because we give you the option to choose the right one, based on the software which you want to install on your server once it is set up. If you're more tech-savvy, you may get a Debian-powered VPS without a Control Panel, and you will have full root access and you'll be able to manage the content and the software through SSH. In case you are less experienced, yet you'd like to use an app which requires Debian, you will be able to select the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel on the order page and you will be able to manage the whole server like a standard shared hosting account. In addition, you can benefit from the optional Managed Services upgrade that we offer, as it comes with weekly Operating System updates done by our admins, among many other useful things.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You are able to choose the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server with just a single click on our registration page and based on your choice, we'll install the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS on your machine, so that the software that you will install later will work in the optimal way. Using a server without any Control Panel, you will receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you'll be able to control everything using a console. A server that's obtained with the Hepsia Control Panel will come with all the software which you will need for your web sites. Though with the latter option the root access will be restricted, you'll be able to control the server as if it were a shared web hosting account, so you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you have no previous expertise in this kind of hosting service. When you get the Managed Services upgrade, we will maintain your server and will update its OS every week in order to make sure that you have the most current and most risk-free edition.
