Debian in Dedicated Servers
You are able to select the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with just a mouse click on our order page and based on your choice, we'll install 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 perform in the right way. Using a server with no Control Panel, you will receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you are able to manage everything through a console. A server which is ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel will come with all the software which you may need for your web sites. Though with the latter option the root access will be restricted, you will be 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 have no previous experience with this kind of website hosting service. When you buy 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 safe release.
