Debian is an Operating System which uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually installed on personal computers, it's being used on an increasing number of web servers as well. 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 secure Operating Systems available, due to the fact that security patches are released within days after a problem 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, but they also provide 24/7 support through special mailing lists and respond within twenty minutes to any question. Thus, 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 distributions with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. As the Operating System costs nothing to use, you will be able to modify both the core as well as all the packages in any way you see fit. Furthermore, you will not be required to pay any license fees.

Debian in VPS Servers

You're able to pick the Debian Operating System with each and every VPS server package that we supply. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of the options that you'll find on the order page, so you can select 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 set up either with no Control Panel or with our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you have more freedom, considering that you will have full root access and you are able to take advantage of the advantages and the full functionality provided by Debian. In the second case, the root access is limited, however you'll be able to manage your world wide web content through a web interface, not a console. In case you do not have a lot of time to command your Debian-powered server, or in case you do not have much experience, you can add the Managed Services upgrade to your package and our admins will take care of the weekly OS updates.

Debian in Dedicated Servers

You're able to pick the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server with only a mouse click on our registration page and depending on your choice, we will install the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS on the machine, so that the software that you will install later will work in the best way. Choosing a server without any Control Panel, you will get Debian and the Apache web server software and you are able to control everything through a console. A server that is obtained with our Hepsia Control Panel will include all the software which you may need for your Internet sites. Although with the latter option the root access will be restricted, you are able to manage the server as if it were a shared web hosting account, therefore you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you have no previous experience with this type of web hosting service. If you get our Managed Services upgrade, we will take care of your server and will update its OS every week to make sure that you have the latest and most safe version.
