Debian is an Operating System that uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually set up on personal computers, it is being used on an increasing number of web servers too. The reason is that it's really stable, so a server running it will not have to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be among the most risk-free Operating Systems to choose from, since 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, they also provide 24/7 support via special mailing lists and reply within 20 minutes to any question. In this light, you'll receive top-notch 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 releases with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. Since the Operating System is absolutely free to use, you are able to modify both the core and all of the packages in any way you see fit. In addition, you will not be required to pay any license fees.
Debian in VPS Servers
You're able to choose the Debian Operating System with each and every VPS server
solution that we provide. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are among the options that you will find on the order page, which means that you can pick the one that will be more suitable for the software that you need to set up and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be installed either without Control Panel or with our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you have more freedom, because you will have full root access and you can make use of the advantages and the full functionality provided by Debian. In the second case, the root access will be restricted, but you are able to control your website content via a web interface, not a console. In case you do not have a lot of time to maintain your Debian-powered server, or if you don't have a lot of experience, you could add the Managed Services upgrade to your package and our administrators will handle the weekly OS updates.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You'll be able to select the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server
with just a click on our registration page and according to your choice, we'll install the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS on your machine, to ensure that the software that you'll install later will work in the very best way. With a server with no Control Panel, you will get Debian and the Apache web server software and you can control everything using a console. A server which is acquired with our Hepsia Control Panel will come with all of the software which you'll need for your websites. Though with the latter option the root access will be limited, you can control the server as if it were a shared hosting account, which means that you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you don't have previous expertise in this kind of hosting service. If you purchase the Managed Services upgrade, we will take care of your server and will update its OS on a weekly basis so as to ensure that you have the most current and most risk-free version.
