Debian is an OS that uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually set up on desktop computers, it is being used on a growing number of web servers as well. The reason is that it's very stable, so a server running it won't have to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be one of the most risk-free Operating Systems to choose from, due to the fact that security patches are released within days after a problem is discovered. This is possible because thousands of experienced developers are employed by the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, in addition, they provide 24/7 support via special e-mail lists and reply in 20 min to any question. In this light, you'll receive an outstanding level of support directly from the developers who know their own platform in depth, and not from a third-party support team. Debian is also one of the Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. Since the Operating System is completely free to use, you are able to modify both the core and all the packages in any way you see fit. Furthermore, you won't be required to pay any license fees.
Debian in Dedicated Hosting
You're able to choose the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with just a single click on our order page and according to your choice, we'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS on your machine, to ensure that the software that you'll install later will perform in the optimal way. Using a server with no Control Panel, you'll receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you will be able to manage everything using a console. A server that is obtained with the Hepsia Control Panel will feature all of the software that you may need for your sites. Even though with the latter option the root access is restricted, you will be able to control the server as if it were a shared website hosting account, which means that you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you don't have previous experience with this kind of web hosting service. If you get our Managed Services upgrade, we will maintain your server and will update its OS on a weekly basis to make sure that you have the most current and most safe release.
