Debian is an Operating System that uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually set up on desktop machines, it's being used on a growing number of web servers as well. The reason is that it is very stable, so a server running it won't need to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being among the most secure Operating Systems to be found, since security patches are released within days after an issue is discovered. This is possible since 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, but they also provide 24/7 support by using special e-mail lists and respond within 20 min to any kind of question. In this light, you will obtain 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 releases with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. As the Operating System is absolutely free to use, you will be able to modify both the core and all of the packages in any way you see fit. In addition, you won't be required to pay any kind of license fees.
Debian in Dedicated Hosting
You can pick the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with a click on our registration page and based on your choice, we'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS on the machine, to ensure that the software that you'll install later will perform in the best possible way. Using a server devoid of Control Panel, you'll receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you are able to manage everything through a console. A server that's acquired with the Hepsia Control Panel will include all the software that you may need for your Internet sites. Though with the latter option the root access will be limited, you will 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 do not have previous expertise in this kind of web hosting service. When you purchase the Managed Services upgrade, we will 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 release.
