Why choose Debian

As soon as you click deploy, the Vultr cloud orchestration takes over and spins up your instance in your desired data center.

Over 20 Years Of Development

Debian is one of the longest running operating systems built on top of the Linux kernel. Since 1993, thousands of contributors have worked on Debian to support over 70 languages, multiple system architectures, and regular software updates. In addition, Debian ships with access to an online repository of over 50,000 packages. Its lineage, support, and package availability position Debian among the top server operating systems.

Documentation and FAQs for Debian

FAQ

How do I change the Debian hostname?

You can change the hostname from the customer portal, but this also reinstalls and wipes all data. See our guide to change the hostname without reinstalling.

How do I keep Debian secure?

We recommend several security practices: Make sure you have automatic backups enabled. Perform all admin tasks with sudo as a non-root user. Keep your Debian server up-to-date with software and security patches. Use the Vultr firewall, the Debian firewall, or both. Debian 9 and 10 may use one of several firewalls such as UFW, nftables, and iptables.

How do I reset the Debian root password?

Use our troubleshooting guide to reset the root password in single-user mode.

Where can I find networking help for Debian?

We have help available for many networking topics: Learn how to configure a virtual private cloud and configure static networking with multiple IPv4 and IPv6 addresses. See our troubleshooting guide for general network issues, firewall questions, and see which network ports are blocked by default.

How do I recover a Debian instance that won't boot?

The Vultr Web Console is available if you cannot reach your server by SSH. See our recovery guide using bootable ISOs such as Finnix.
