Debian is an OS that uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually set up on desktop machines, it is being used on an increasing number of web servers too. The reason is that it's very 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 available, since security patches are released within days after an issue is found. This is possible because thousands of skilled developers are part of the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, they also provide 24/7 support via special mailing lists and reply in 20 min to any question. Thus, you'll enjoy top-notch 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 costs nothing to use, you will be able to modify both the core as well as all of the packages in any way you see fit. Also, you won't need to pay any kind of license fees.
Debian in VPS Servers
When you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the VPS server
plans that we offer and choose this Operating System on the order page. You will be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release, as we give you the option to select the right one, depending on the software which you would like to install on your server once it's set up. In case you are more tech-savvy, you can get a Debian-powered VPS with no Control Panel, so you will have full root access and you can control the content and the software via SSH. In case you are less experienced, but you'd like to use an app which requires Debian, you will be able to choose the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page and you can manage the whole server like a standard shared web hosting account. You may also reap the benefits of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we supply, since it includes once a week Operating System updates performed by our admins, among other useful things.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
32-bit and 64-bit versions of Debian are available on our dedicated server
order page and you can choose any of them with only a mouse click for your brand new machine, based on what software environment the applications which you would like to use require for the best performance. You can also choose 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 made for less experienced users who want a Debian-powered server, but wish to manage it like a shared hosting account, whereas the second option is good for more advanced users who want to have more control, due to the fact that ‘no Control Panel' stands for only Debian and the Apache web server software, but no other software set up on the server whatsoever. We can also save you time and effort with the Managed Services upgrade, since it features regular Operating System updates, to ensure that you will have a safe and stable Debian installation.
