Debian is an OS that uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually installed 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 have to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be among the most secure Operating Systems you can get, because security patches are released within days after an issue is found. This is possible because thousands of well-experienced developers work for the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, but they also provide 24/7 support via special e-mail lists and reply within twenty minutes to any question. Thus, you will 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 among the Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. As the Operating System is free to use, you will be able to modify both the core and all of the packages in the way you see fit. Also, you will not be required to pay any kind of license fees.

Debian in VPS

When you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the virtual private 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 version, because we give you the option to pick the more appropriate one, depending on the software that you would like to install on your server once it is up and running. In case you are more tech-savvy, you may get a Debian-powered VPS without a Control Panel, and you'll have full root access and you can manage the content and the software using SSH. In case you are less experienced, but you'd like to use an application which requires Debian, you're able to select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page and you'll be able to manage the entire server like a standard shared hosting account. You can also take advantage of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we offer, because it features once a week Operating System updates performed by our admins, among other useful things.

Debian in Dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to choose the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server with only a click on our registration page and depending on your choice, we will set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS on the machine, to ensure that the software that you will install later will perform in the very best way. Using a server without any Control Panel, you'll get Debian and the Apache web server software and you are able to control everything using a console. A server which is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel will feature all the software which you will need for your Internet sites. Though with the latter option the root access will be limited, you're able to control the server as if it were a shared hosting account, so that you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you have no previous experience with this kind of hosting service. If you buy our Managed Services upgrade, we will maintain your server and will update its OS every week to make sure that you have the most recent and most risk-free release.
