Debian is an Operating System which uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually installed on desktop machines, it is being used on an increasing number of web servers too. The reason is that it's very stable, so a server running it won't need to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being one of the most risk-free Operating Systems to choose from, since security patches are released within days after an issue is discovered. This is possible since thousands of experienced developers are employed by 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. In this light, you'll enjoy an outstanding level of support directly from the developers who know their own platform in depth, and not from a third-party support team. Debian is also among the Linux releases with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. As the Operating System is completely free to use, you'll be able to modify both the core as well as all the packages in any way you see fit. In addition, you won't need to pay any kind of license fees.

Debian in VPS Servers

You are able to choose the Debian Operating System with each VPS server solution that we supply. 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options that you will find on the order page, so you can select the one that will be more suitable for the software that you'd like to set up and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be set up either with no Control Panel or with our in-house made Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you will have more freedom, because you will have full root access and you will be able to make use of the advantages and the full functionality supplied by Debian. In the second case, the root access is limited, yet you are able to manage your web content via a web interface, not a console. If you do not have a lot of time to manage your Debian-powered server, or in case you don't have a lot of experience, you could add the Managed Services upgrade to your package and our administrators will handle the weekly OS updates.

Debian in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that we provide can be installed with Debian and we'll test the program environment in detail before we hand over your machine in order to make sure that it'll perform flawlessly. You are able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version throughout the registration process, so that the apps which you install can get the maximum out of your server. We can also keep your OS up-to-date when you add the additional Managed Services package to your plan. If you order your Debian-driven server without a website hosting Control Panel, you can do anything you like with your machine and you will have full root-level access, yet you will need to be more skillful, as all the tasks will be performed through a Secure Shell console. If you get your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll get a web interface, via which you can manage domains, files, databases, etcetera, and this might be a better option if you are not very experienced, and a specific application that you intend to use requires Debian. You can access your Hepsia-equipped server through SSH too, yet the things that you can do will be limited.
