Debian in Dedicated Servers
You're able to choose the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server with just a click on our registration page and based on your choice, we'll install the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS on the machine, so that the software that you will install later will work in the right way. Choosing a server without Control Panel, you will get Debian and the Apache web server software and you will be able to control everything using a console. A server which is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel will feature all the software that you'll need for your websites. Though with the latter option the root access will be limited, you are able to manage the server as if it were a shared website hosting account, so you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you do not have previous experience with this type of hosting service. If you get the Managed Services upgrade, we'll take care of your server and will update its OS weekly so as to ensure that you have the latest and most safe edition.
