Debian is an OS which uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually installed on desktop machines, it is being used on a growing number of web servers as well. The reason is that it is very stable, so a server running it won't need to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be one of the most safe Operating Systems out there, because security patches are released within days after an issue is found. This is possible because thousands of well-trained developers are part of the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, but they also provide 24/7 support through special mailing lists and respond in 20 minutes to any question. In this light, you'll receive 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 several Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. As the Operating System is free to use, you'll be able to modify both the core and all the packages in any way you see fit. Furthermore, you will not need to pay any license fees.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You will be able to select the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with a click on our order page and based on your choice, we'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS on your machine, to ensure that the software that you will install later will perform in the best possible 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 through a console. A server that's acquired with our Hepsia Control Panel will feature all the software that you may need for your sites. Though with the latter option the root access will be restricted, you're able to control the server as if it were a shared web hosting account, thus you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you do not have previous experience with this type of website hosting service. When you purchase our Managed Services upgrade, we will take care of your server and will update its OS weekly in order to make sure that you have the most recent and most secure edition.
