Debian is an OS that uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually installed on desktops, it's being used on a growing number of web servers too. The reason is that it's very stable, so a server running it won't have to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be one of the most risk-free Operating Systems available, due to the fact that security patches are released within days after a problem is discovered. This is possible since thousands of qualified developers are working 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 respond within twenty minutes to any kind of question. In this light, you will have an outstanding level of support directly from the developers who know their own platform in detail, and not from a third-party support team. Debian is also one of several Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. Since the Operating System costs nothing to use, you're able to modify both the core and all the packages in any way you see fit. Also, you won't have to pay any license fees.
Debian in VPS Servers
When you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the VPS server solutions that we offer and pick this Operating System on the order page. You will be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release, because we give you the option to choose the more appropriate one, according to the software that you would like to install on your server once it's up and running. In case you are more tech-savvy, you can get a Debian-powered VPS without a Control Panel, so you'll have full root access and you can control the content and the software using SSH. In case you are less experienced, but you would like to use software that requires Debian, you can choose our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel on the order page and you'll be able to manage the whole server like a standard shared web hosting account. You can also take advantage of the optional Managed Services upgrade that we offer, because it includes weekly Operating System updates performed by our admins, among many other useful things.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
32-bit and 64-bit editions of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you're able to select any of them with only a mouse click for your brand new machine, depending on what software environment the apps that you wish to use require for the best performance. You can also select whether our Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on the server or if it should come with no Control Panel at all. The first option is made for less experienced users who want a Debian-powered server, yet would like to control it like a shared web hosting account, while the second option is good for more experienced users who want 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 will also save you time and effort with the Managed Services upgrade, because it features routine Operating System updates, so that you will have a safe and stable Debian installation.
