Debian is an Operating System which uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually set up on personal computers, it is being used on a growing number of web servers too. The reason is that it is very stable, so a server running it won't need to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be one of the most safe Operating Systems nowadays, as security patches are released within days after a problem is found. This is possible because thousands of well-trained 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 through special e-mail lists and reply within 20 min to any question. In this light, you will enjoy top-level 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 releases with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. As the Operating System costs nothing to use, you will be 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'll be able to get a Debian-powered VPS server with all of our VPS plans and you can choose if the version which will be installed throughout the server setup process will be 32-bit or 64-bit. Thus, you will make sure that the software environment will match the requirements of the applications that you need to run and that the latter will function appropriately. During the order process, you may also select whether the VPS will come with the Hepsia Control Panel or without any Control Panel at all. The first option provides you with a handy graphical interface, via that you're able to manage everything related to your web presence using only a web browser - files, emails, 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 kind of software that may not be compatible with Hepsia. You may also add the optional Managed Services package, which includes regular Operating System updates.

Debian in Dedicated Servers

Each and every dedicated server that we offer can be set up with Debian and we'll test the software environment in depth before we hand over the machine so as to make sure that it'll perform properly. You're able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release during the signup process, so that the apps that you set up will be able to get the maximum out of your server. We can also keep your Operating System up-to-date when you add the additional Managed Services package to your plan. In case you get your Debian-driven server without a website hosting Control Panel, you will be able to do anything you like with the machine and you will have full root-level access, but you will have to be more experienced, since all of the tasks will be performed through a Secure Shell console. If you acquire your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you'll get a web interface, via which you'll be able to control domains, files, databases, etc, and this might be the best option when you aren't very experienced, and a particular application that you need to use requires Debian. You have access to your Hepsia-equipped server via SSH as well, yet the things which you'll be able to do will be limited.
