Debian is an OS that uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually set up on desktops, it is being used on an increasing number of web servers as well. The reason is that it is really stable, so a server running it won't have to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be among the most risk-free Operating Systems nowadays, since 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, in addition, they provide 24/7 support via special mailing lists and respond in twenty minutes to any kind of question. In this light, you'll enjoy 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 several Linux releases with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. Since the Operating System is absolutely free to use, you'll be able to modify both the core and all of the packages in any way you see fit. Furthermore, you will not have to pay any license fees.

Debian in VPS

You will be able to acquire a Debian-powered virtual private server with any of our VPS plans and you will be able to choose if the version which will be installed throughout the server setup process will be 32-bit or 64-bit. Thus, you can ensure that the software environment will meet the system requirements of the apps which you need to run and that the latter will work correctly. During the order process, you can also choose whether the VPS will come with the Hepsia Control Panel or with no Control Panel at all. The first option provides you with a user-friendly graphical interface, via that you'll be able to control everything related to your world wide web presence using only an Internet browser - files, emails, databases, etcetera. With no Control Panel at hand, you'll have to make everything via a console, yet you'll have full root access and you will be able to install any kind of software that may not be supported by Hepsia. You may also add our optional Managed Services package, which includes weekly Operating System updates.

Debian in Dedicated Hosting

Each dedicated server that we offer can be installed with Debian and we will test the software environment thoroughly before we hand over your machine to make sure that it will perform appropriately. You will be able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release during the registration process, so that the applications that you install will be able to get the maximum out of your server. We can also maintain your Operating System up-to-date when you add the optional Managed Services package to your plan. In case you acquire your Debian-driven server without a hosting Control Panel, you can do anything you like with the machine and you'll have full root-level access, however you'll need to be more skillful, as all of the tasks will be performed through a Secure Shell console. When you get your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will have a web interface, through which you will be able to control domains, files, databases, etc, and this might be a better option in case you are not very experienced, but a specific application that you want to use requires Debian. You'll have access to your Hepsia-equipped server via SSH too, however the things that you will be able to do are limited.
