Debian is an OS that uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually installed on desktop computers, it is being used on more and more web servers as well. The reason is that it's really stable, so a server running it will not need to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being among the most protected Operating Systems to choose from, since security patches are released within days after a problem is discovered. This is possible since 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, in addition, they provide 24/7 support through special mailing lists and reply in twenty minutes to any kind of question. In this light, you'll 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 among the Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. Since the Operating System costs nothing to use, you'll be able to modify both the core as well as any of the packages in the way you see fit. Furthermore, you won't need to pay any license fees.

Debian in VPS Servers

You are able to pick the Debian Operating System with each and every VPS server package that we offer. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are among the options that you will find on the order page, which means that 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 installed either with no Control Panel or with our custom-made Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you will have more freedom, because you will have full root access and you can use the advantages and the full functionality supplied by Debian. In the second case, the root access is limited, yet you're able to control your world wide web content via a web interface, not a console. If you do not have a lot of time to take care of your Debian-powered server, or if you don't have substantial experience, you could add the Managed Services upgrade to your plan and our admins will handle the regular OS updates.

Debian in Dedicated Servers

32-bit and 64-bit editions of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you can select all of them with just a mouse click for your new machine, depending on what software environment the apps which you wish to use require for the best performance. You may also choose whether our Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on the server or whether it should come without a Control Panel at all. The first option is suitable for less experienced users who want a Debian-powered server, but wish to control it like a shared hosting account, whereas the second option is good for more advanced users who need to have more control, since ‘no Control Panel' stands for only Debian and the Apache web server software, but no other software set up on the server at all. We'll also save you time and effort with the Managed Services upgrade, as it includes routine Operating System updates, to ensure that you will have a secure and stable Debian installation.
