Debian is an Operating System that uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually set up on personal computers, it is being used on more and more 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 in existence, due to the fact that security patches are released within days after a problem is found. This is possible because thousands of well-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 by using special e-mail lists and reply in twenty minutes to any question. Thus, you will get 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 one of several Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. As the Operating System is absolutely free to use, you're able to modify both the core and all the packages in the way you see fit. In addition, you will not need to pay any license fees.
Debian in Dedicated Web Hosting
You will be able to pick the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server with only a single click on our order page and depending on your choice, we will 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 work in the optimal way. Choosing a server without Control Panel, you will get Debian and the Apache web server software and you'll be able to manage everything using a console. A server which is ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel will include all of the software which you may need for your sites. Even though with the latter option the root access is limited, you're able to control the server as if it were a shared hosting account, so that 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 get our Managed Services upgrade, we will take care of your server and will update its OS on a weekly basis to ensure that you have the most recent and most risk-free edition.
