Debian is an Operating System which uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually installed on desktops, 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 have to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be one of the most secure Operating Systems to choose from, since security patches are released within days after an issue is discovered. This is possible because thousands of qualified developers are employed by 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 reply in twenty minutes to any question. Thus, you will 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 distributions with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. Since the Operating System is absolutely free to use, you are able to modify both the core and all of the packages in any way you see fit. In addition, you won't have to pay any license fees.
Debian in VPS Servers
You are able to obtain a Debian-powered VPS server
with any of our VPS packages and you'll be able to choose if the version which will be installed throughout the server setup process should be 32-bit or 64-bit. In this way, you'll guarantee that the software environment will meet the requirements of the apps which you need to run and that the latter will run correctly. Throughout the order process, you can also choose whether the VPS will come with our Hepsia Control Panel or without any Control Panel at all. The first option will provide you with a user-friendly graphical interface, via which you will be able to manage everything related to your online presence using only a web browser - files, e-mail accounts, databases, etc. With no Control Panel at hand, you will need to make everything via a console, however you'll have full root access and you'll be able to set up any software that may not be supported by Hepsia. You can also add the optional Managed Services package, which 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 select all of them with just a mouse click for your brand new machine, depending on what software environment the apps that you plan to use require for the best performance. You can also choose if our Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on the server or whether it should come without Control Panel at all. The first option is made for less experienced users who want a Debian-powered server, yet would like to manage it like a shared web hosting account, while the second option is suitable for more advanced users who would like to have more control, since ‘no Control Panel' stands for only Debian and the Apache web server software, but no other software installed on the server whatsoever. We will also save you time and effort with the Managed Services upgrade, because it includes routine Operating System updates, so that you'll have a safe and stable Debian installation.
