Debian is an Operating System that uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually set up on desktops, it's being used on a growing number of web servers as well. The reason is that it's really stable, so a server running it will not need to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be among the most protected Operating Systems in existence, due to the fact that security patches are released within days after a problem is discovered. This is possible since thousands of well-trained developers are employed by the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, they also provide 24/7 support by using special e-mail lists and respond in twenty minutes to any kind of question. Thus, you will enjoy top-level 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 the Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. Since the Operating System is completely free to use, you'll be able to modify both the core as well as all of the packages in any way you see fit. Furthermore, you won't have to pay any kind of license fees.

Debian in VPS Servers

You are able to obtain a Debian-powered VPS server with any of our VPS packages and you will be able to choose if the version that will be installed throughout the server setup process should be 32-bit or 64-bit. In this way, you can ensure that the software environment will match the system requirements of the apps that you want to run and that the latter will work correctly. Throughout the order process, you may also select if the VPS will come with our Hepsia Control Panel or without any Control Panel at all. The first option will give you an easy to navigate graphical interface, via that you can control everything related to your online presence using only a web browser - files, e-mails, databases, and the like. Without a Control Panel at hand, you will need to make everything through a console, yet you'll have full root access and you will be able to install any software that may not be supported by Hepsia. You may also add the optional Managed Services package, that includes regular Operating System updates.

Debian in Dedicated Servers

32-bit and 64-bit editions of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you are able to select any of them with just a single click for your brand new server, depending on what software environment the applications which you wish to use require for optimal performance. You may also choose if our Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on the server or if it should come without any Control Panel at all. The first option is made for inexperienced users who want a Debian-powered server, yet would like to control it like a shared hosting account, while the second option is suitable for more experienced users who wish to have more control, due to the fact that ‘no Control Panel' stands for only Debian and the Apache web server software, and no other software installed on the server whatsoever. We will also save you time and effort with our Managed Services upgrade, because it comes with routine Operating System updates, to ensure that you'll have a safe and stable Debian installation.
