Debian is an OS that uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually set up on desktop computers, it's being used on an increasing number of web servers as well. The reason is that it is very 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 available, as security patches are released within days after an issue is found. This is possible because 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, they also provide 24/7 support through special e-mail lists and respond in 20 minutes to any kind of question. In this light, you will enjoy 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 among the Linux releases with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. As the Operating System is completely free to use, you are able to modify both the core as well as all of the packages in any way you see fit. In addition, you will not have to pay any license fees.

Debian in Dedicated Hosting

Each dedicated server that we offer can be installed with Debian and we will test the software environment thoroughly before we hand over your server to ensure that it'll perform flawlessly. You can pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release throughout the sign-up process, so the applications that you install can get the maximum out of your server. We will also keep your OS up-to-date if you add the additional Managed Services package to your plan. If you order your Debian-driven server without a hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to do anything you want with the machine and you'll have full root-level access, but you will have to be more experienced, because all the tasks will be performed through a Secure Shell console. If you get your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you'll receive a web interface, through which you can manage domains, files, databases, and many others, and this might be a better option when you are not very experienced, but a specific application that you intend to use requires Debian. You'll have access to your Hepsia-equipped server via SSH as well, but the things that you are able to do are limited.
