Debian is an Operating System which uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually installed on desktop computers, it is being used on a growing number of web servers as well. The reason is that it's very stable, so a server running it won't need to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be one of the most secure Operating Systems nowadays, since security patches are released within days after a problem 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, in addition, they provide 24/7 support via special e-mail lists and respond within 20 min to any question. In this light, you will receive 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 among the Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. As the Operating System is completely free to use, you are able to modify both the core as well as all of the packages in any way you see fit. In addition, you will not be required to pay any license fees.

Debian in VPS Hosting

There are several Operating Systems that we offer with our VPS hosting and Debian is among them, therefore if you need a server with this Operating System, you'll be able to get one in less than 1 hour. We also offer 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS to make sure that the VPS you'll obtain will completely cover the system requirements of any web or offline app that you intend to install on the server. Managing the content on the server can be performed in two ways, according to the choice you make on the order page. Without a Control Panel, you can do everything on your Debian-equipped server using Secure Shell, as you will have root-level access, whereas through the Hepsia Control Panel, the root access will have certain limitations, but you can do everything from your browser using an intuitive web interface, even if you aren't very experienced. With the optional Managed Services package that we supply, we will also maintain your Debian OS up to date every week, saving you effort and time.

Debian in Dedicated Web Hosting

You'll be able to choose the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with a mouse click on our order page and depending on your choice, we will install the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS on your machine, to ensure that the software that you'll install later will work in the best way. Using a server devoid of Control Panel, you will get Debian and the Apache web server software and you will be able to control everything through a console. A server that's obtained with the Hepsia Control Panel will come with all of the software which you'll need for your Internet sites. Although with the latter option the root access will be restricted, you are able to manage the server as if it were a shared web hosting account, so that you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you have no previous expertise in this type of hosting service. If you get our Managed Services upgrade, we will maintain your server and will update its OS weekly so as to ensure that you have the most recent and most safe release.
