Debian is an OS that uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually set up on desktop computers, it's being used on more and more web servers too. The reason is that it is very stable, so a server running it will not have to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being one of the most risk-free Operating Systems you can get, since security patches are released within days after an issue is found. This is possible because thousands of qualified 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 by using special mailing lists and reply within 20 minutes to any question. Thus, you'll have an outstanding level of 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. As the Operating System is completely free to use, you will be able to modify both the core as well as any of the packages in any way you see fit. In addition, you will not be required to pay any license fees.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
With our dedicated servers, you are able to enjoy a web hosting powerhouse running Debian right away. This Operating System is one of the options that you'll get during the registration process and you will be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit version, depending on what software environment your apps need. If you wish to have full root access, you'll be able to obtain a server without a Control Panel, so you'll have more freedom in terms of what you can do with the machine through SSH. If you have less experience, yet you need Debian for a certain piece of software, you will be able to obtain the server with our Hepsia Control Panel. Regardless that the root access is more limited, you'll be able to do anything related to your online content easily through an easy to use graphical interface. When you add the optional Managed Services bundle to your dedicated server plan, our system administrators will take care of the weekly OS enhancements. They will perform many other important tasks for your benefit too.
