Debian is an OS that uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually set up on desktop computers, it's being used on an increasing number of web servers as well. The reason is that it is very stable, so a server running it will not need to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be among the most safe Operating Systems to choose from, since security patches are released within days after a problem is discovered. This is possible since thousands of skilled developers work 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 via special mailing lists and reply within twenty minutes to any question. In this light, you'll have 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 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 and any of the packages in the way you see fit. Also, you won't be required to pay any license fees.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You can select the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with a mouse click on our registration page and depending on your choice, we'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS on the machine, so that the software that you will install later will work in the very best way. Choosing a server devoid of Control Panel, you will receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you'll be able to control everything using a console. A server that is acquired with the Hepsia Control Panel will come with all of the software which you may need for your sites. Though with the latter option the root access will be limited, you'll be 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 don't have previous expertise in this type of web hosting service. When you purchase the Managed Services upgrade, we'll take care of your server and will update its OS on a weekly basis so as to ensure that you have the most current and most risk-free edition.
