Debian is an Operating System which 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's very stable, so a server running it won't have to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being one of the most secure Operating Systems out there, because security patches are released within days after a problem is discovered. This is possible because thousands of well-trained developers are employed by the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, they also provide 24/7 support through special e-mail lists and respond in twenty minutes to any kind of question. Thus, you'll receive top-level 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 the Linux releases with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. Since the Operating System is completely free to use, you will be able to modify both the core as well as any of the packages in any way you see fit. Furthermore, you won't have to pay any kind of license fees.

Debian in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that we offer can be set up with Debian and we'll test the program environment carefully before we hand over the machine in order to ensure that it will perform appropriately. You're able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version throughout the registration process, so that the applications that you set up can get the maximum out of your server. We will also maintain your OS up-to-date when you add the additional Managed Services package to your plan. If you obtain your Debian-driven server without a web hosting Control Panel, you can do anything you want with your machine and you'll have full root-level access, yet you will have to be more experienced, as all the tasks will be performed through 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'll be able to control domains, files, databases, etc, and this might be the best option when you are not very experienced, but a particular application that you'd like to use requires Debian. You can access your Hepsia-equipped server via SSH too, but the things which you're able to do are restricted.
