Debian is an OS that uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually installed on desktop computers, it's being used on more and more web servers as well. The reason is that it is really 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 out there, as security patches are released within days after a problem is discovered. This is possible since thousands of experienced developers are part of the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, in addition, they provide 24/7 support via special mailing lists and respond within twenty minutes to any question. In this light, you'll have top-level 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 costs nothing to use, you will be able to modify both the core as well as all of the packages in any way you see fit. In addition, you won't need to pay any kind of license fees.
Debian in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You're able to pick the Debian OS 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 your machine, to ensure that the software that you will install later will perform in the optimal way. Selecting a server without Control Panel, you will get Debian and the Apache web server software and you'll be able to manage everything through a console. A server that's ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel will come with all of the software which you'll need for your Internet sites. Even though with the latter option the root access will be limited, you are able to control the server as if it were a shared hosting account, which means that you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you have no previous experience with this kind of hosting service. If you order the Managed Services upgrade, we'll maintain your server and will update its OS weekly to make sure that you have the latest and most secure release.
