Debian is an OS which uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually set up on desktops, it's being used on an increasing number of web servers too. The reason is that it's very stable, so a server running it will not need to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being one of the most safe Operating Systems to be found, because security patches are released within days after an issue is discovered. This is possible since thousands of qualified 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 within 20 min to any question. In this light, you'll get 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 - over 30,000. As the Operating System is free to use, you'll be able to modify both the core and all the packages in the way you see fit. Also, you won't have to pay any license fees.

Debian in VPS Hosting

You are able to get a Debian-powered virtual private server with any of our VPS plans and you can choose if the version that will be installed throughout the server setup process will be 32-bit or 64-bit. Thus, you can make sure that the software environment will match the requirements of the applications which you wish to run and that the latter will run efficiently. Throughout the order process, you can also decide if the VPS will come with the Hepsia Control Panel or with no Control Panel at all. The first option will provide you with a handy graphical interface, through that you'll be able to manage everything related to your online presence using only a web browser - files, emails, databases, and the like. With no 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 install any software that may not be supported by Hepsia. You can also add the optional Managed Services package, that includes regular Operating System updates.

Debian in Dedicated Web Hosting

You are able to choose the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with just a click on our registration page and based on your choice, we will install the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS on your machine, so that the software that you'll install later will work in the best way. With a server devoid of Control Panel, you'll receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you're able to control everything using a console. A server that's acquired with the Hepsia Control Panel will come with all the software that you'll need for your web sites. Even though with the latter option the root access will be restricted, you will be able to control the server as if it were a shared hosting account, so that you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you do not have previous expertise in this type of web hosting service. If you get our Managed Services upgrade, we'll 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 risk-free version.
