Debian is an Operating System which uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually installed on desktop machines, it's being used on more and more web servers too. The reason is that it's really stable, so a server running it will not have to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be among the most risk-free Operating Systems out there, due to the fact that security patches are released within days after an issue is found. 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, in addition, they provide 24/7 support through special mailing lists and reply in 20 minutes to any kind of question. In this light, you'll have 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 - more than 30,000. As the Operating System is free to use, you'll be able to modify both the core as well as all of the packages in the way you see fit. Also, you will not need to pay any license fees.
Debian in VPS Servers
You will be able to obtain a Debian-powered VPS server with all of our VPS packages and you can choose if the version that will be installed throughout the server setup process will be 32-bit or 64-bit. Thus, you'll guarantee that the software environment will match the requirements of the applications which you want to run and that the latter will work effectively. During the order process, you may also choose if the VPS will come with our Hepsia Control Panel or without a Control Panel at all. The first option gives you an easy-to-use graphical interface, via which you can manage everything related to your world wide web presence using only a web browser - files, email addresses, databases, etcetera. Without a Control Panel at hand, you will need to do everything via a console, yet you will have full root access and you can set up any software that may not be compatible with Hepsia. In addition, you can add our optional Managed Services package, that includes regular Operating System updates.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
32-bit and 64-bit versions of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you're able to pick any of them with just a click for your brand new server, depending on what software environment the apps that you wish to use require for the best performance. You may also select whether our Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on the server or whether it should come with no Control Panel at all. The first option is suitable for less experienced users who want a Debian-powered server, but want to manage it like a shared website 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, and no other software installed on the server whatsoever. We will also save you time and effort with the Managed Services upgrade, as it features routine Operating System updates, so that you'll have a safe and stable Debian installation.
