Debian is an Operating System that uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually installed on desktops, it's being used on a growing number of web servers too. The reason is that it is very stable, so a server running it won't need to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be one of the most risk-free Operating Systems available, since security patches are released within days after an issue is found. This is possible because thousands of experienced developers are working for the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, they also provide 24/7 support via special e-mail lists and reply within twenty minutes to any question. In this light, you will receive 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 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 as well as all of the packages in the way you see fit. In addition, you will not be required to pay any kind of license fees.
Debian in Dedicated Hosting
32-bit and 64-bit versions of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you'll be able to pick all of them with just a mouse click for your new machine, depending on what software environment the apps that you wish to use require for optimal performance. You can also choose if our Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on the server or if it should come without any Control Panel at all. The first option is suitable for less experienced users who need a Debian-powered server, yet wish to control it like a shared website hosting account, while the second option is suitable for more advanced users who would like to have more control, as ‘no Control Panel' stands for only Debian and the Apache web server software, and no other software set up on the server whatsoever. We will also save your time and effort with our Managed Services upgrade, as it comes with routine Operating System updates, to ensure that you will have a safe and stable Debian installation.
