Debian is an Operating System which uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually set up on desktops, it is 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 have to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be one of the most risk-free Operating Systems to choose from, due to the fact that security patches are released within days after a problem is discovered. 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, in addition, they provide 24/7 support via special e-mail lists and reply in 20 min to any question. Thus, you will get top-notch 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 several Linux releases with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. Since the Operating System is absolutely free to use, you'll be able to modify both the core as well as all the packages in the way you see fit. Also, you won't have to pay any kind of license fees.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
Each and every dedicated server
that we offer can be set up with Debian and we'll test the software environment in detail before we hand over your server to make sure that it will perform appropriately. You're able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release during the registration process, so that the apps which you install can get the maximum out of your server. We can also keep your OS up-to-date when you add the optional Managed Services package to your plan. In case you obtain your Debian-driven server without a hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to do anything you like with your machine and you'll have full root-level access, however you will need to be more skillful, since all the tasks will be performed using a Secure Shell console. If you acquire your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will have a web interface, through which you can control domains, files, databases, and many others, and this might be the best option when you are not very experienced, but a particular app which you'd like to use requires Debian. You'll have access to your Hepsia-equipped server through SSH too, yet the things which you can do will be restricted.
