Debian is an Operating System which uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually set up on personal computers, it's being used on an increasing number of web servers too. The reason is that it's really stable, so a server running it will not have to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being one of the most secure Operating Systems to choose from, since security patches are released within days after a problem is found. This is possible since thousands of experienced developers are part of the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, they also provide 24/7 support through special e-mail lists and respond within 20 min to any question. In this light, you will enjoy top-level 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 releases with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. Since the Operating System is absolutely free to use, you're able to modify both the core and any of the packages in any way you see fit. Also, you will not need to pay any kind of license fees.
Debian in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You can choose the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server with just a mouse click on our order page and based on your choice, we will install the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS on the machine, so that the software that you will install later will perform in the best way. Selecting a server without Control Panel, you'll get Debian and the Apache web server software and you will be able to manage everything through a console. A server that is obtained with the Hepsia Control Panel will include all the software which you will need for your web sites. Although with the latter option the root access is restricted, you will be able to control the server as if it were a shared hosting account, therefore you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you don't have previous experience with this kind of website hosting service. If you purchase our Managed Services upgrade, we will maintain your server and will update its OS weekly in order to ensure that you have the most recent and most risk-free edition.
