Debian is an Operating System that uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually set up on desktop machines, it's being used on an increasing number of web servers too. The reason is that it is really stable, so a server running it won't have to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be one of the most secure Operating Systems available, because security patches are released within days after an issue is found. This is possible because thousands of qualified developers are employed by the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, they also provide 24/7 support through special e-mail lists and reply in 20 minutes to any question. In this light, 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 releases with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. Since the Operating System is completely free to use, you will be able to modify both the core and all the packages in the way you see fit. In addition, you will not have to pay any kind of license fees.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You will be able to pick the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server with a click on our registration page and according to your choice, we will set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS on the machine, so that the software that you will install later will work in the very best way. Selecting a server without any Control Panel, you will get Debian and the Apache web server software and you're able to control everything through a console. A server which is obtained with the Hepsia Control Panel will include all of the software which you will need for your websites. Though with the latter option the root access will be limited, you're able to control the server as if it were a shared web hosting account, which means that you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you do not have previous experience with this type of hosting service. If you buy the 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 most recent and most risk-free version.
