Debian is an OS which uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually set up on desktop machines, it is being used on a growing number of web servers too. The reason is that it's really stable, so a server running it won't have to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be one of the most secure Operating Systems available, as security patches are released within days after an issue is discovered. This is possible because thousands of skilled 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 through special e-mail lists and respond within 20 min to any kind of question. In this light, you will enjoy 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 the Linux releases with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. As the Operating System costs nothing 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 will not have to pay any kind of license fees.

Debian in VPS Servers

When you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the VPS server solutions that we provide and choose this Operating System on the registration page. You can pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release, because we give you the option to choose the right one, depending on the software that you'd like to install on your server once it is up and running. In case you're more tech-savvy, you may get a Debian-powered VPS with no Control Panel, so you will have full root access and you will be able to manage the content and the software via SSH. If you are less experienced, but you'd like to use an application which requires Debian, you're able to pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page and you will be able to manage the entire server like a standard shared hosting account. You can also take advantage of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we provide, since it comes with regular Operating System updates done by our admins, among various other useful things.

Debian in Dedicated Servers

You are able to select the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server with just a single click on our registration page and depending on your choice, we'll install the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS on the machine, so that the software that you'll install later will perform in the very best way. With a server devoid of Control Panel, you will get Debian and the Apache web server software and you will be able to manage everything through a console. A server which is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel will feature all of the software which you'll need for your web sites. Though with the latter option the root access is limited, you're able to manage the server as if it were a shared hosting account, thus you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you have no previous expertise in this kind of web hosting service. When you buy the Managed Services upgrade, we will maintain your server and will update its OS on a weekly basis so as to make sure that you have the latest and most secure edition.
