Debian is an OS that uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually set up on desktops, it is being used on a growing number of web servers too. The reason is that it's very stable, so a server running it will not have to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being among the most secure Operating Systems you can get, because security patches are released within days after an issue is found. This is possible because thousands of well-experienced 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 reply within 20 minutes to any kind of question. Thus, you will obtain top-level support directly from the developers who know their own platform in detail, 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 absolutely free to use, you can modify both the core and any of the packages in any way you see fit. Furthermore, you will not be required to pay any license fees.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
With our dedicated servers, you will be able to obtain a web hosting powerhouse running Debian without delay. This Operating System is among the choices that you'll get during the registration process and you can choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit version, depending on what software environment your applications need. In case you need to have full root access, you're 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 using SSH. In case you have less experience, yet you need Debian for a certain computer program, you're able to buy the server with our Hepsia Control Panel. Although the root access is more limited, you will be able to do anything related to your online content easily using an intuitive graphical interface. If you add the optional Managed Services bundle to your dedicated server plan, our system administrators will handle the weekly OS updates. They'll perform many other useful tasks on your behalf too.
