Debian is an Operating System which uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually installed on personal computers, 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 won't need to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being among the most secure Operating Systems you can get, since security patches are released within days after an issue is found. This is possible because thousands of experienced developers work 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 reply within 20 min to any kind of question. Thus, you will receive 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 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 and all the packages in the way you see fit. Also, you won't be required to pay any kind of license fees.

Debian in VPS Servers

You are able to get a Debian-powered VPS server with any of our VPS plans and you can choose if the version that will be installed throughout the server setup process should be 32-bit or 64-bit. This way, you will ensure that the software environment will match the system requirements of the apps which you want to run and that the latter will function efficiently. During the order process, you can also decide whether the VPS will come with our Hepsia Control Panel or without any Control Panel at all. The first option will provide you with an intuitive graphical interface, via which you're able to manage everything related to your world wide web presence using only an Internet browser - files, email accounts, databases, etcetera. Without Control Panel at hand, you will have to make everything through a console, but you will have full root access and you'll be able to install any kind of software that may not be compatible with Hepsia. In addition, you can add the optional Managed Services package, which includes regular Operating System updates.

Debian in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that we offer can be set up with Debian and we'll test the program environment in detail before we hand over your server so as to make sure that it'll perform perfectly. You are able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release throughout the sign-up process, so that the applications which you install 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 optional Managed Services package to your plan. If you get your Debian-driven server without a website hosting Control Panel, you can do anything you want with your machine and you'll have full root-level access, but you will need to be more skillful, since all of the tasks will be performed through a Secure Shell console. When you obtain your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll receive a web interface, via which you'll be able to manage domains, files, databases, etc, and this might be a better option when you are not very experienced, and a particular application which you need to use requires Debian. You will have access to your Hepsia-equipped server via SSH as well, however the things which you're able to do are limited.
