Why choose a Debian VPS
Developers love Debian. The OS offers as much power and flexibility as users need, while also being easy to install, and simple at default. A high degree of freedom and customisation is achieved through its large collection of software repositories, multiple hardware architectures, easy package management and huge number of available packages. The OS is the perfect combination of stable and secure, making it a great server OS.
Initiated in 1993 by Ian Murdoch, Debian’s first release was launched in 1996. The system pre-dates most Linux-based distros, including Ubuntu. It is praised for being very closely aligned with the open-source principles of Linux/GNU, and for its unwavering commitment towards developer freedom. Debian even has a social contract online – the distribution’s very own magna carta.
Free and stable software
Debian Stable version is free to install. It has a very effective bug-tracking system, and the software and libraries included go through rigorous testing to ensure stability. Debian spend months — sometimes even years vetting each package before releasing an update — so expect reliable, smooth updates no matter what.
Debian’s standard installation has less functionality and is thus much more secure. Its updates are tested and accepted by Debian’s development team — increasing security as a result. Debian also has more security tools than other distributions — so if you need top-notch data security, Debian is the right choice for you.
Powerful package managers
With a powerful package manager and choice of quality packages, developers get all the tools they need to meet the requirements of their specific use case. There are over 51,000 packages at your disposal, and you can also use the APT package manager to manage packages and software. The appropriate software package will either be available, or configurable to suit your needs.
Extensive hardware support
Debian supports multiple hardware architectures, making it highly flexible and reliable. It also has multi-arch/kernel support.
Advanced but simple
Debian has simple default settings but offers unbeatable flexibility and power. With freedom built into the OS, this highly configurable distro meets your most complex requirements.
Debian is the largest community-run distro and has incredible software support. An active community of power users provide an excellent resource to help resolve your queries. You can also make use of the countless tutorials available online.
What is a Debian VPS?
A VPS, short for ‘virtual private server’, is a virtual machine with hardware resources dedicated to you. One of the key advantages of this solution is that it has a much more affordable price tag than a standard dedicated server.
A Debian VPS is a server specially designed to work with Debian distributions. However, you can still install an operating system of your choice — so you can get a Windows VPS, for example.
A VPS provides you with a dedicated environment. It is a virtual server cut into a physical machine that allows you to have your own allocated hosting space. You can add resources to suit your activity’s growth. Both solutions are hosted in our own datacentres and available worldwide.
Who can use a VPS?
Managing a VPS requires basic knowledge in server administration. These notions are essential to manage the OS installed on the machine and configure the applications.
If you wish to benefit from guaranteed resources without any knowledge of server administration, we recommend our Performance Web Hosting plans.
What are the differences between a VPS and a shared hosting package?
VPS solutions and cloud hosting packages are designed to suit two different needs.
If you just want to host a website or blog without having to deal with server configuration and administration, then a web hosting plan would be the best option for you. It focuses on the hosting aspect, offering standard configurations used by most CMS tools and platforms.
If your project requires a specific server configuration, a certain operating system, and admin access to manage the environment and monitoring, then we would advise opting for a VPS. This way, you get root access to the server and can configure it to suit your needs.
Can I host multiple websites on my VPS Debian?
Yes, a VPS can be partitioned and organized according to your needs. You can host several sites or projects, allocating each one a private space for which you choose the volume. To simplify these operations, you can install a website management panel, such as Plesk or cPanel.
Which OS are compatible with a VPS?
Our virtual private servers are compatible with a wide range of operating systems. You can have a VPS under Windows and a VPS under Linux distributions (including both Debian and Ubuntu).
What is the best Linux distro for VPS?
Debian is great for more advanced Linux users. It is highly configurable but perhaps less user-friendly than some alternatives. Arguably, Ubuntu is more user-friendly, as well as being compatible with most programming languages. Debian is the best for its high level of customisation and stability – which is perfect for advanced users with complex projects or goals.
Which version of Debian do you offer?
We offer the latest versions of Debian, including Debian 9, Debian 10, and Debian 11.
What are the Debian VPS billing options?
Our VPS hosting solutions are categorised into hosting packages: Starter, Essential, Comfort and Elite. These are billed on a monthly basis. Select the right solution for you based on your storage and performance requirements. Debian is free as standard. Add additional backup, storage, and control panel options at checkout.
Does OVHcloud provide support?
Yes! We provide online support, expertise, and a set of services to suit different use cases. Call us, email, or use our live chat to receive technical support. Otherwise, you can choose a higher support package for a more targeted service.
