Debian is an Operating System that uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually set up on desktop computers, it's being used on an increasing 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 regarded as being one of the most safe Operating Systems out there, due to the fact that security patches are released within days after an issue is discovered. This is possible because thousands of well-experienced 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 receive top-notch 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 are able to modify both the core as well as any of the packages in any way you see fit. In addition, you will not have to pay any kind of license fees.

Debian in VPS

You will be able to choose the Debian Operating System with each virtual private server package that we offer. 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are among the options that you will find on the order page, which means that you can select the one that is more suitable for the software that you'd like to set up and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be set up either without any Control Panel or with our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you'll have more freedom, because you will have full root access and you can make use of the advantages and the full functionality offered by Debian. In the second case, the root access will be restricted, yet you will be able to manage your website content through a web interface, not a console. In case you do not have much time to command your Debian-powered server, or in case you don't have a lot of experience, you can add the Managed Services upgrade to your package and our admins will handle the regular OS updates.

Debian in Dedicated Hosting

Each dedicated server that we supply can be set up with Debian and we will test the software environment carefully before we hand over your machine so as to ensure that it will perform perfectly. You can choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version during the registration process, so that the applications that you install can get the maximum out of your server. We will also maintain your OS up-to-date when you add the optional Managed Services package to your plan. When you get your Debian-driven server without a hosting Control Panel, you can do anything you like with the machine and you will have full root-level access, however you'll need to be more skillful, as all the tasks will be performed using a Secure Shell console. When you acquire your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll receive a web interface, through which you will be able to manage domains, files, databases, etc, and this might be the best option in case you aren't very experienced, and a specific app which you would like to use requires Debian. You have access to your Hepsia-equipped server via SSH too, yet the things which you can do are limited.
