Debian is an OS that uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually set up on desktop machines, it is being used on more and more web servers too. 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 one of the most protected Operating Systems in existence, as security patches are released within days after a problem is found. This is possible because thousands of well-experienced 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. In this light, you'll get an outstanding level of 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 several Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. Since the Operating System is completely free to use, you're able to modify both the core as well as all the packages in any way you see fit. Also, you won't be required to pay any kind of license fees.

Debian in Dedicated Servers

Each and every dedicated server that we provide can be set up with Debian and we will test the program environment completely before we hand over the machine in order to ensure that it'll perform appropriately. You are able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release throughout the registration process, so that the applications that you install can get the maximum out of your server. We will also maintain your Operating System up-to-date if you add the optional Managed Services package to your plan. If you get your Debian-driven server without a web hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to do anything you want with your machine and you'll have full root-level access, yet you will need to be more skillful, because all the tasks will be performed using a Secure Shell console. When you obtain your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll get a web interface, through which you'll be able to manage domains, files, databases, etc, and this might be a better option when you aren't very experienced, but a certain app that you wish to use requires Debian. You'll have access to your Hepsia-equipped server via SSH as well, but the things that you will be able to do will be restricted.
