Debian is an Operating System that uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually installed on desktop computers, it's being used on an increasing number of web servers too. The reason is that it's really stable, so a server running it will not need to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be one of the most risk-free Operating Systems to be found, as security patches are released within days after a problem is found. This is possible since thousands of well-trained 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 through special e-mail lists and reply in 20 min to any question. In this light, you will get an outstanding level of support directly from the developers who know their own platform in depth, and not from a third-party support team. Debian is also one of the Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. As the Operating System is completely free to use, you're able to modify both the core as well as all of the packages in the way you see fit. Also, you won't have to pay any kind of license fees.

Debian in VPS

You will be able to select the Debian Operating System with each and every virtual private server solution that we offer. 32-bit and 64-bit releases of the OS are some of the options that you can find on the order page, so you can pick the one that will be more suitable for the software that you would like to install and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be set up either devoid of Control Panel or with our in-house made Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you will have more freedom, due to the fact that you will have full root access and you are able to make use of the advantages and the full functionality provided by Debian. In the second case, the root access will be limited, but you're able to manage your world wide web content through a web interface, not a console. If you don't have much time to manage your Debian-powered server, or in case you don't have a lot of experience, you are able to add the Managed Services upgrade to your package and our admins will take care of the regular OS updates.

Debian in Dedicated Hosting

32-bit and 64-bit releases 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 machine, based on what software environment the apps which you would like to use require for optimal performance. You can also select whether our Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on the server or if it should come without a Control Panel at all. The first option is made for less experienced users who need a Debian-powered server, but want to control it like a shared hosting account, whereas the second option is suitable for more experienced users who would like to have more control, since ‘no Control Panel' stands for only Debian and the Apache web server software, and no other software set up on the server at all. We can also save you time and effort with the Managed Services upgrade, because it features regular Operating System updates, to ensure that you'll have a secure and stable Debian installation.
