Debian is an Operating System which uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually set up on desktop machines, it is being used on an increasing number of web servers as well. The reason is that it's really stable, so a server running it will not have to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being one of the most secure Operating Systems to be found, since security patches are released within days after an issue is found. This is possible since thousands of experienced developers are working 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 via special mailing lists and respond within twenty minutes to any question. Thus, you will obtain 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 releases with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. Since the Operating System is free to use, you're able to modify both the core and any of the packages in the way you see fit. Also, you won't be required to pay any kind of license fees.

Debian in VPS

You'll be able to obtain a Debian-powered virtual private server with any of our VPS plans and you can choose if the version which will be installed during the server setup process should be 32-bit or 64-bit. This way, you can guarantee that the software environment will meet the system requirements of the applications that you want to run and that the latter will work correctly. During the order process, you can also select whether the VPS will come with the Hepsia Control Panel or with no Control Panel at all. The first option provides you with a user-friendly graphical interface, through that you can control everything related to your online presence using only a web browser - files, e-mail accounts, databases, etc. Without Control Panel at hand, you will need to do everything via a console, yet you will have full root access and you will be able to set up any software that may not be supported by Hepsia. You may also add our optional Managed Services package, which includes regular Operating System updates.

Debian in Dedicated Hosting

Each dedicated server that we offer can be set up with Debian and we will test the software environment in depth before we hand over your server so as to ensure that it'll perform appropriately. You can choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release during the signup process, so the apps that you set up will be able to get the maximum out of your server. We will also maintain your OS up-to-date when you add the optional Managed Services package to your plan. If you acquire your Debian-driven server without a website hosting Control Panel, you can do anything you want with the machine and you will have full root-level access, yet you will have to be more skillful, as all of the tasks will be performed using a Secure Shell console. If you obtain your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will have a web interface, through which you'll be able to manage domains, files, databases, etc, and this might be a better option in case you aren't very experienced, but a particular app that you want to use requires Debian. You'll have access to your Hepsia-equipped server via SSH too, yet the things that you can do are restricted.
