A popular Linux distribution, a Debian VPS has great support for most software straight out of the box with a huge and extendable repository of software, Debian is a favourite with many service providers. At Farbyte we offer both 32 and 64 bit Debian UK VPS hosting services. Debian is often overlooked by many, in favour of a Ubuntu VPS, however it should be noted that Ubuntu is actually based on Debian and thus the pair share much in terms of the development and documentation!
Linux vps hosting comparison table:
As with most Linux distributions Debian provides an excellent server or development platform and is completely FREE.
Support is provided by the community over at Debian.org,
or you can find companies offering additional support services for a fee.
At Farbyte we can provide a managed VPS service for your Debian VPS. Simply choose the required option under 'Server Management' during checkout.
Debian comes with the great APT package management system, extending the functionality of the 'dpkg' command utility, APT makes installing software, such as a web hosting server, from centralised repositories a simple process on your VPS. The 'apt-get' and 'aptitude' command line interfaces for APT are a great help in maintaining an up to date Debian VPS operating system and associated software packages.
We use Paypal as our secure payment processing partner and as such, we do not collect or store any financial information when purchasing your Debian VPS.
Don't have a Paypal account? No problem! You can create one during checkout, or pay using Paypal's debit / credit card processing service without using a Paypal account.
We also accept UK bank transfers via Standing Order, BACS and Faster Payment Service (FPS). Please note that there is a £3.99 administration charge when using bank transfers for payment and your Debian VPS will not be deployed until payment is received. FPS transfers usually clear within 2 hours of payment being made.
