Debian is an Operating System which uses the Linux kernel. Although 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 very stable, so a server running it will not need to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be among the most safe Operating Systems to choose from, due to the fact that security patches are released within days after a problem is found. This is possible because thousands of qualified developers work for the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, in addition, they provide 24/7 support through special mailing lists and respond in twenty minutes to any kind of question. Thus, you'll enjoy 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 the Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. Since the Operating System is absolutely 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. In addition, you won't have to pay any license fees.

Debian in Dedicated Servers

Each dedicated server that we provide can be installed with Debian and we'll test the software environment thoroughly before we hand over your server in order to ensure that it will perform perfectly. You can select the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release throughout the registration process, so that the apps that you install can get the maximum out of your server. We can also maintain your Operating System up-to-date when you add the optional Managed Services package to your plan. In case you order your Debian-driven server without a hosting Control Panel, you can do anything you like with the machine and you will have full root-level access, but you'll need to be more skillful, as all of the tasks will be performed through a Secure Shell console. When you order your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will receive a web interface, through which you will be able to control domains, files, databases, etc, and this might be the best option when you aren't very experienced, but a particular app that you need to use requires Debian. You'll have access to your Hepsia-equipped server via SSH too, but the things which you can do are restricted.
