It is very dependable and protected, because fixes are released in just a few days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a large support community, so when you have any kind of questions or issues with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it is equipped with, you can contact the developers straight away via e-mail using special mailing lists and receive a response in 15-20 minutes. The Debian community gives you the top level of support possible, because your questions will be handled by the very same people who made Debian in the first place, so they have an exhaustive knowledge of how their own system operates.

Debian in VPS Servers
If you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the VPS server
packages that we provide and choose this Operating System on the registration page. You can select the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release, because we give you the option to choose the more appropriate one, according to the software that you would like to install on your server once it is up and running. In case you're more tech-savvy, you may get a Debian-powered VPS without a Control Panel, so that you'll have full root access and you will be able to manage the content and the software using SSH. If you are less experienced, but you would like to use an application which requires Debian, you can select the Hepsia hosting Control Panel on the order page and you will be able to manage the entire server like a standard shared web hosting account. You may also benefit from the optional Managed Services upgrade that we offer, as it comes with regular Operating System updates done by our administrators, among many other useful things.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
Each dedicated server
that we supply can be set up with Debian and we'll test the software environment thoroughly before we hand over the machine to ensure that it'll perform properly. You're able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version during the registration process, so the applications that you install can 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 order your Debian-driven server without a website hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to do anything you like with the machine and you will have full root-level access, however you'll need to be more skillful, because all of the tasks will be performed through a Secure Shell console. When you acquire your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will get a web interface, via which you'll be able to control domains, files, databases, etc, and this might be the best option if you aren't very experienced, and a particular application which you'd like to use requires Debian. You can access your Hepsia-equipped server through SSH as well, yet the things which you can do will be limited.
