Debian is an Operating System that uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually installed on desktops, it's being used on a growing number of web servers as well. The reason is that it is really stable, so a server running it will not have to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being among the most safe Operating Systems out there, since security patches are released within days after an issue is discovered. This is possible since thousands of qualified developers are working for the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, in addition, they provide 24/7 support by using special e-mail lists and respond in 20 minutes to any kind of question. In this light, you will obtain 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 among the Linux releases with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. Since the Operating System is absolutely free to use, you can modify both the core and all of the packages in any way you see fit. Also, you will not be required to pay any license fees.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You will be able to select the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server with just a click on our order page and based on 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 which is obtained with our Hepsia Control Panel will feature all of the software which you will need for your Internet sites. Though with the latter option the root access is limited, you can control the server as if it were a shared web hosting account, so you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you have no previous expertise in this type of web hosting service. When you order our Managed Services upgrade, we'll take care of your server and will update its OS every week so as to ensure that you have the latest and most safe edition.
