Debian is an Operating System which uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually set up on desktop machines, it is being used on a growing number of web servers too. The reason is that it's very 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 out there, since security patches are released within days after an issue is found. This is possible since thousands of qualified 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 via special e-mail lists and reply within 20 minutes to any question. In this light, you will receive 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 distributions with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. As the Operating System is free to use, you are able to modify both the core and all of the packages in the way you see fit. Furthermore, you will not need to pay any license fees.

Debian in VPS Web Hosting

You'll be able to get a Debian-powered virtual private server with all of our VPS plans and you will be able to choose if the version that will be installed during the server setup process will be 32-bit or 64-bit. This way, you'll guarantee that the software environment will match the requirements of the apps which you wish to run and that the latter will run properly. Throughout the order process, you can also decide whether the VPS will come with the Hepsia Control Panel or without a Control Panel at all. The first option provides you with an easy to navigate graphical interface, via which you're able to manage everything related to your world wide web presence using only a web browser - files, emails, databases, etc. Without Control Panel at hand, you will need to make everything through a console, but you'll have full root access and you will be able to install any kind of software that may not be supported by Hepsia. You can also add our optional Managed Services package, which includes regular Operating System updates.

Debian in Dedicated Servers Hosting

You are able to choose the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with just a mouse click on our registration page and based on your choice, we'll install the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS on the machine, so that the software that you'll install later will work in the best possible way. Picking a server without any Control Panel, you will get Debian and the Apache web server software and you are able to control everything using a console. A server that is acquired with our Hepsia Control Panel will include all the software that you'll need for your web sites. Although with the latter option the root access will be restricted, you're able to manage the server as if it were a shared hosting account, so you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you don't have previous expertise in this type of hosting service. If you purchase our Managed Services upgrade, we will take care of your server and will update its OS on a weekly basis in order to make sure that you have the most current and most secure edition.
