Debian is an Operating System that uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually installed on desktop computers, it's being used on a growing number of web servers as well. The reason is that it is really stable, so a server running it won't need to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be among the most secure Operating Systems you can get, due to the fact that security patches are released within days after an issue is found. This is possible since thousands of well-trained developers are working for the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, but they also provide 24/7 support through special mailing lists and respond in 20 min to any question. In this light, you'll receive top-notch 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 releases with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. As the Operating System is absolutely free to use, you will be able to modify both the core as well as all the packages in any way you see fit. Also, you won't have to pay any license fees.
Debian in Dedicated Web Hosting
You can select the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with just a single click on our order page and depending on your choice, we'll install the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS on the machine, so that the software that you will install later will perform in the very best way. Choosing a server devoid of Control Panel, you'll get Debian and the Apache web server software and you'll be able to manage everything through a console. A server that is obtained with our Hepsia Control Panel will feature all the software that you will need for your sites. Although with the latter option the root access will be restricted, you'll be able to control the server as if it were a shared web hosting account, so you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you don't have previous expertise in this kind of web hosting service. If you buy the Managed Services upgrade, we will maintain your server and will update its OS every week in order to ensure that you have the most recent and most safe release.
