Debian is an OS that uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually installed on desktops, 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 risk-free Operating Systems in existence, since security patches are released within days after a problem is found. This is possible because thousands of well-trained developers are part of 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 respond within 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 distributions with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. As the Operating System costs nothing to use, you're able to modify both the core and all of the packages in any way you see fit. In addition, you will not have to pay any license fees.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You will be able to choose the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with a click on our registration page and based on your choice, we will set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS on your machine, to ensure that the software that you will install later will work in the best way. Choosing a server without Control Panel, you'll receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you will be able to manage everything using a console. A server that is obtained with the Hepsia Control Panel will come with all of the software that you will need for your Internet sites. Although with the latter option the root access will be restricted, you're able to control the server as if it were a shared website hosting account, therefore you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you don't have previous experience with this type of hosting service. If you purchase our Managed Services upgrade, we'll take care of your server and will update its OS every week to make sure that you have the most current and most secure release.
