Debian is a well-known Linux distribution, which is used mainly on PC's, but many people have begun using it lately as a web server OS too, due to the stability and protection it provides. The latter is a consequence of the fact that Debian is developed and supported by a large number of qualified volunteers worldwide, therefore any patch that's necessary to fix some issue is released within a matter of days. The same community will also help with any question or issue that a user may ever encounter, since they can be contacted via email using mailing lists and a qualified response will be sent in around 15-20 min. The advantage here is that your questions will be replied by the same people who have made the Operating System itself and they have an in-depth knowledge of how it functions. As Debian is provided for free, you won't have to pay any kind of license fees to use it and you can customize it as much as you want or need. This is valid for both the Operating System as well as the 30.000+ software packages which are available for it.

Debian in VPS

You are able to choose the Debian Operating System with each virtual private server plan that we supply. 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are among the options that you will find on the order page, which means that you can select the one that will be more suitable for the software that you need to set up and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be set up either with no Control Panel or with our tailor-made Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you'll have more freedom, considering that you will have full root access and you are able to use the advantages and the full functionality offered by Debian. In the second case, the root access will be restricted, but you'll be able to manage your online content through a web interface, not a console. In case you do not have a lot of time to manage your Debian-powered server, or if you do not have a lot of experience, you can add the Managed Services upgrade to your plan and our admins will handle the regular OS updates.

Debian in Dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to pick the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with just a mouse click on our order page and based on your choice, we'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS on the machine, so that the software that you will install later will work in the optimal way. Picking a server without Control Panel, you'll receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you will be able to manage everything using a console. A server that's acquired with our Hepsia Control Panel will come with all the software that you'll need for your websites. Even though with the latter option the root access will be limited, you're able to manage the server as if it were a shared hosting account, thus you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you don't have previous expertise in this kind of web hosting service. If you get the Managed Services upgrade, we will take care of your server and will update its OS weekly so as to make sure that you have the most recent and most risk-free version.
