Debian is an Operating System which uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually set up on desktops, it's being used on more and more web servers too. The reason is that it is very stable, so a server running it will not need to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be one of the most safe Operating Systems to choose from, as security patches are released within days after a problem is discovered. This is possible because thousands of well-experienced developers are employed by the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, but they also provide 24/7 support via special e-mail lists and reply in 20 minutes to any kind of question. Thus, you will have top-level 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 the Linux releases with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. As the Operating System is completely free to use, you can modify both the core and any of the packages in the way you see fit. Furthermore, you will not be required to pay any license fees.
Debian in VPS Web Hosting

A Debian-powered VPS can be installed either with no Control Panel or with our custom Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you have more freedom, since you will have full root access and you are able to take advantage of the advantages and the full functionality provided by Debian. In the second case, the root access will be restricted, however you are able to control your online content through a web interface, not a console. If you do not have a lot of time to take care of your Debian-powered server, or in case you do not have much experience, you're able to add the Managed Services upgrade to your package and our admins will handle the weekly OS updates.
