Debian is a preferred Linux distribution, that's used primarily on PC's, but a lot of people have started using it lately as a web server OS too, due to the stability and protection it supplies. The latter is a direct result the fact that Debian is developed and supported by a large number of qualified volunteers worldwide, which means that any patch that's required to fix some issue is released within a couple of days. The same community can also help you with any question or problem that a user may ever experience, since they can be contacted through email using e-mail lists and a qualified response will be sent in around 15-20 minutes. The advantage here is that all of your questions will be addressed by the same people who have made the Operating System itself and they have a detailed knowledge of how it functions. As Debian is absolutely free, you won't need to pay any license fees to use it and you'll be able to customize it as much as you want or need. This is valid for both the Operating System and the 30.000+ software packages that are readily available for it.

Debian in VPS Servers

You can obtain a Debian-powered VPS server with any of our VPS plans and you can choose if the version that will be installed throughout the server setup process will be 32-bit or 64-bit. This way, you can ensure that the software environment will match the requirements of the apps which you want to run and that the latter will run effectively. Throughout the order process, you may also decide whether the VPS will come with our Hepsia Control Panel or without Control Panel at all. The first option provides you with a handy graphical interface, through that you're able to control everything related to your world wide web presence using only an Internet browser - files, e-mails, databases, etcetera. Without a Control Panel at hand, you will need to do everything through a console, yet you'll have full root access and you will be able to set up any kind of software that may not be supported by Hepsia. You may also add the optional Managed Services package, that includes regular Operating System updates.

Debian in Dedicated Servers

You will be able to choose the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with only 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, to ensure that the software that you will install later will work in the best possible way. Using a server with no Control Panel, you will get Debian and the Apache web server software and you'll be able to manage everything through a console. A server which is ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel will include all of the software which you will need for your web sites. Although with the latter option the root access is restricted, you're able to manage the server as if it were a shared website hosting account, so that you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you don't have previous experience with this kind of web hosting service. If you purchase the Managed Services upgrade, we'll take care of your server and will update its OS every week so as to ensure that you have the most recent and most risk-free version.
