Debian is an OS which uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually installed on desktop machines, it's being used on more and more web servers as well. The reason is that it's really stable, so a server running it won't need to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being among the most secure Operating Systems out there, since security patches are released within days after an issue is found. This is possible because thousands of well-experienced 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 via special e-mail lists and reply within twenty minutes to any kind of question. In this light, you will have an outstanding level of support directly from the developers who know their own platform in detail, and not from a third-party support team. Debian is also one of the Linux releases with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. Since the Operating System is free to use, you are able to modify both the core as well as all of the packages in the way you see fit. Also, you will not have to pay any kind of license fees.
Debian in Dedicated Hosting
You can choose the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server with just a single click on our registration page and depending on your choice, we'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS on the machine, to ensure that the software that you will install later will work in the very best way. Selecting a server with no Control Panel, you will get Debian and the Apache web server software and you are able to manage everything through a console. A server that's obtained with the Hepsia Control Panel will include all of the software that you'll need for your websites. Even though with the latter option the root access will be limited, you can manage the server as if it were a shared hosting account, so you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you have no previous expertise in this type of website hosting service. When you purchase the Managed Services upgrade, we will take care of your server and will update its OS weekly to ensure that you have the latest and most secure edition.
