Debian is an Operating System which uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually installed on desktop computers, it is being used on a growing number of web servers as well. 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 safe Operating Systems in existence, because security patches are released within days after a problem is found. This is possible because thousands of skilled developers are working for 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 reply in 20 min to any question. Thus, you will obtain top-notch 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 distributions with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. Since the Operating System is free to use, you'll be able to modify both the core and all the packages in the way you see fit. Furthermore, you will not be required to pay any kind of license fees.
Debian in Dedicated Hosting
32-bit and 64-bit releases of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you can select all of them with only a single click for your brand new machine, depending on what software environment the apps which you plan to use require for top notch performance. You may also select whether our Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on the server or whether it should come with no Control Panel at all. The first option is suitable for inexperienced users who need a Debian-powered server, but wish to control it like a shared web hosting account, whereas the second option is good for more experienced users who want to have more control, due to the fact that ‘no Control Panel' stands for only Debian and the Apache web server software, and no other software installed on the server whatsoever. We can also save your time and effort with the Managed Services upgrade, as it features routine Operating System updates, to ensure that you will have a safe and stable Debian installation.
