Debian is an OS which uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually set up on desktop machines, it is being used on an increasing number of web servers too. The reason is that it is 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 protected Operating Systems to be found, because security patches are released within days after an issue is discovered. This is possible because thousands of qualified developers are part of the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, but they also provide 24/7 support via special e-mail lists and reply within twenty minutes to any question. Thus, you'll get 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 - more than 30,000. Since the Operating System is absolutely free to use, you will be able to modify both the core and any of the packages in the way you see fit. Furthermore, you won't have to pay any kind of license fees.

Debian in VPS Hosting

When you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the virtual private server packages that we provide and choose this Operating System on the registration page. You can pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release, since we give you the option to choose the right one, depending on the software that you want to install on your server once it's up and running. In case you are more tech-savvy, you may get a Debian-powered VPS with no Control Panel, so that you will have full root access and you can manage the content and the software through SSH. In case you are less experienced, but you would like to use an app that requires Debian, you are able to pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page and you can manage the entire server like a standard shared hosting account. You can also reap the benefits of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we supply, since it includes regular Operating System updates performed by our administrators, among various other useful things.

Debian in Dedicated Web Hosting

Each dedicated server that we offer can be installed with Debian and we will test the software environment carefully before we hand over the machine to make sure that it will perform flawlessly. You can select the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release during the sign-up process, so that the apps which you install can get the maximum out of your server. We will also keep your OS up-to-date when you add the additional Managed Services package to your plan. When you get your Debian-driven server without a hosting Control Panel, you will be able to do anything you like with the machine and you will have full root-level access, however you'll have to be more experienced, because all of the tasks will be performed through a Secure Shell console. If you acquire your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you'll have a web interface, via which you'll be able to control domains, files, databases, etcetera, and this might be the best option when you are not very experienced, but a particular application which you wish to use requires Debian. You'll have access to your Hepsia-equipped server through SSH as well, but the things that you will be able to do will be limited.
