Debian in VPS Servers
You're able to pick the Debian Operating System with each VPS server plan that we offer. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of the options that you will find on the order page, so you can select the one that is more suitable for the software that you'd like to set up and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be installed either with no Control Panel or with our custom Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you'll have more freedom, since you will have full root access and you are able to make use of the advantages and the full functionality provided by Debian. In the second case, the root access is restricted, however you can control your website content through a web interface, not a console. If you don't have much time to manage your Debian-powered server, or in case you don't have much experience, you can add the Managed Services upgrade to your package and our admins will handle the weekly OS updates.
