Debian is an OS that uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually set up on desktop machines, it's being used on an increasing number of web servers as well. The reason is that it's really stable, so a server running it won't have to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be one of the most risk-free Operating Systems you can get, since security patches are released within days after an issue is found. This is possible since thousands of qualified developers are employed by the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, they also provide 24/7 support by using special e-mail lists and reply within twenty minutes to any kind of question. Thus, you will 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 distributions with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. Since the Operating System is free to use, you will 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'll be able to select the Debian Operating System with each and every VPS server plan that we supply. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of the options that you can find on the order page, so you can select the one that is more suitable for the software that you'd like to set up and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be set up either without any Control Panel or with our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you have more freedom, considering that you will have full root access and you're able to take advantage of the advantages and the full functionality supplied by Debian. In the second case, the root access will be restricted, but you'll be able to control your website content through a web interface, not a console. In case you don't have much time to take care of your Debian-powered server, or if you do not have substantial experience, you're able to add the Managed Services upgrade to your plan and our admins will handle the regular OS updates.

Debian in Dedicated Servers

With our Linux dedicated service, you're able to get a hosting powerhouse running Debian right away. This Operating System is among the options that you will get throughout the registration process and you are able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit release, depending on what software environment your apps need. If you need to have full root access, you are able to acquire a server without a Control Panel, so you will have more freedom with regard to what you can do with your machine through SSH. When you have less experience, yet you need Debian for a specific piece of software, you're able to get the server with our Hepsia Control Panel. Despite the fact that the root access will be more limited, you're able to do anything related to your web content without difficulty through an easy to use graphical interface. If you add the optional Managed Services bundle to your dedicated server plan, our system administrators will handle the weekly OS enhancements. They will perform other useful tasks for you as well.
