Debian is an OS which uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually set up on desktop machines, it is being used on more and more web servers as well. The reason is that it is really stable, so a server running it will not need to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being one of the most risk-free Operating Systems available, due to the fact that security patches are released within days after a problem is found. This is possible because thousands of skilled developers work for 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 mailing lists and respond in 20 minutes to any kind of question. Thus, you'll enjoy top-level 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 the Linux releases with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. As the Operating System is completely free to use, you're able to modify both the core and all the packages in the way you see fit. In addition, you will not have 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 solutions that we provide and choose this Operating System on the order page. You can pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release, because we give you the option to pick the more appropriate one, depending on the software that you'd like to install on your server once it is set up. If you're more tech-savvy, you may get a Debian-powered VPS without a Control Panel, so that you will have full root access and you can control the content and the software using SSH. If you are less experienced, but you would like to use an app that requires Debian, you'll be able to pick the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page and you'll be able to manage the entire server like a standard shared web hosting account. In addition, you can reap the benefits of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we provide, since it includes weekly Operating System updates done by our administrators, among various 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 new server, based on what software environment the apps which you want to use require for optimal performance. You can also select if our Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on the server or whether it should come without any Control Panel at all. The first option is suitable for less experienced users who want a Debian-powered server, but would like to manage it like a shared hosting account, while the second option is suitable for more experienced users who want to have more control, as ‘no Control Panel' means 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 our Managed Services upgrade, because it comes with routine Operating System updates, to ensure that you will have a secure and stable Debian installation.
