Debian is an Operating System which uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually set up on personal computers, it's 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, as security patches are released within days after an issue is discovered. This is possible because thousands of well-trained developers are employed by the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, in addition, they provide 24/7 support by using special mailing lists and respond within 20 minutes to any kind of question. Thus, 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. Since the Operating System is completely free to use, you will be able to modify both the core and any of the packages in any way you see fit. Also, you will not be required to pay any kind of license fees.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You can select the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with a mouse click on our registration page and depending on your choice, we will set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS on your machine, to ensure that the software that you will install later will work in the best possible way. Picking a server without Control Panel, you will receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you will be able to manage everything through a console. A server which is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel will include all the software which you may need for your Internet sites. Although with the latter option the root access will be limited, you'll be able to control the server as if it were a shared hosting account, so you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you do not have previous expertise in this type of hosting service. When you get our Managed Services upgrade, we will maintain your server and will update its OS every week so as to ensure that you have the most current and most safe version.
