Debian is an Operating System which uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually installed on desktop computers, it's being used on an increasing number of web servers as well. The reason is that it is very stable, so a server running it won't have to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being among the most secure Operating Systems you can get, since security patches are released within days after an issue 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 e-mail lists and reply within 20 min to any kind of question. In this light, you'll have top-notch support directly from the developers who know their own platform in depth, 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 completely free to use, you can modify both the core and any of the packages in the way you see fit. Also, you will not need to pay any license fees.

Debian in VPS Hosting

You will be able to select the Debian Operating System with each virtual private server plan that we supply. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of the options that you will find on the order page, so you can select the one that will be more suitable for the software that you'd like to set up and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be installed either with no Control Panel or with our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you will have more freedom, since you will have full root access and you'll be able to make use of the advantages and the full functionality provided by Debian. In the second case, the root access is restricted, yet you're able to control your world wide web content via a web interface, not a console. In case you don't have much time to control your Debian-powered server, or in case you do not have substantial experience, you could add the Managed Services upgrade to your plan and our administrators will handle the regular OS updates.

Debian in Dedicated Web Hosting

32-bit and 64-bit versions of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you'll be able to pick any of them with just a mouse click for your brand new machine, based on what software environment the applications that you would like to use require for top notch performance. You can also choose whether our Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on the server or if it should come with no Control Panel at all. The first option is suitable for inexperienced users who want a Debian-powered server, yet would like to control it like a shared website hosting account, whereas the second option is suitable for more experienced users who need to have more control, due to the fact that ‘no Control Panel' means only Debian and the Apache web server software, but no other software set up on the server at all. We'll also save you time and effort with our Managed Services upgrade, since it includes routine Operating System updates, to ensure that you will have a safe and stable Debian installation.
