Debian is an Operating System which uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually set up on desktop machines, it's being used on more and more web servers as well. The reason is that it is really stable, so a server running it will not have to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being among the most protected Operating Systems you can get, because security patches are released within days after an issue is found. This is possible because thousands of skilled developers are employed by the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, in addition, they provide 24/7 support by using special e-mail lists and reply in twenty minutes to any kind of question. Thus, you will get an outstanding level of 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. As the Operating System is free to use, you're able to modify both the core as well as any of the packages in any 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 editions of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you can select all of them with just a single click for your new server, depending on what software environment the apps which you would like to use require for the best performance. You can also choose if our Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on the server or whether it should come without any Control Panel at all. The first option is suitable for inexperienced users who want a Debian-powered server, yet want to control it like a shared website hosting account, whereas the second option is good for more experienced users who would like to have more control, because ‘no Control Panel' means only Debian and the Apache web server software, but no other software set up on the server at all. We can also save your time and effort with the Managed Services upgrade, as it comes with routine Operating System updates, so that you'll have a secure and stable Debian installation.
