Debian is an OS which uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually installed on desktop computers, it is being used on an increasing number of web servers too. The reason is that it's very stable, so a server running it will not have to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be among the most secure Operating Systems in existence, as security patches are released within days after a problem is discovered. This is possible since thousands of experienced developers are employed by the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, they also provide 24/7 support by using special e-mail lists and reply in 20 min to any question. In this light, you'll obtain top-notch support directly from the developers who know their own platform in depth, and not from a third-party support team. Debian is also among the Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. Since the Operating System is free to use, you're able to modify both the core and all the packages in any way you see fit. In addition, you will not need to pay any kind of license fees.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You will be able to choose the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with just a single click on our order page and depending on your choice, we'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS on the machine, so that the software that you will install later will perform in the right way. Selecting a server devoid of Control Panel, you'll get Debian and the Apache web server software and you are able to manage everything using a console. A server that's acquired with the Hepsia Control Panel will come with all the software which you'll need for your sites. Although with the latter option the root access will be restricted, you'll be able to control the server as if it were a shared web hosting account, so you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you do not have previous experience with this kind of hosting service. If you purchase the Managed Services upgrade, we'll take care of your server and will update its OS on a weekly basis to ensure that you have the latest and most safe version.
