Debian in VPS Servers
If you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the VPS server solutions that we provide and pick this Operating System on the registration page. You can pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release, because we give you the option to select the right one, depending on the software which you wish to install on your server once it's up and running. When you're more tech-savvy, you can get a Debian-powered VPS without a Control Panel, so that you will have full root access and you can control the content and the software via SSH. In case you are less experienced, yet you would like to use an application which requires Debian, you can choose the Hepsia web 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 benefit from the optional Managed Services upgrade that we supply, since it features once a week Operating System updates performed by our administrators, among other useful things.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
Each and every dedicated server that we provide can be installed with Debian and we'll test the software environment in depth before we hand over your machine in order to make sure that it will perform appropriately. You are able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release during the signup process, so the applications which you install will be able to get the maximum out of your server. We will also maintain your Operating System up-to-date when you add the additional Managed Services package to your plan. In case you acquire your Debian-driven server without a hosting Control Panel, you can do anything you want with your machine and you will have full root-level access, but you will need to be more experienced, as all the tasks will be performed through a Secure Shell console.

You can access your Hepsia-equipped server via SSH as well, yet the things that you will be able to do are restricted.
