Debian is an Operating System that uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually set up on desktop computers, it is 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 have to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being one of the most secure Operating Systems to choose from, as security patches are released within days after a problem is discovered. This is possible because thousands of skilled 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 via special mailing lists and respond within twenty minutes to any question. Thus, you'll enjoy 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 costs nothing to use, you are able to modify both the core as well as all of the packages in any way you see fit. Also, you will not be required to pay any license fees.
Debian in Dedicated Hosting
With all of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages, you'll be able to get a web hosting powerhouse running Debian without delay. This Operating System is one of the options that you will get during the registration process and you're able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit release, depending on what software environment your applications need. When you want to have full root access, you'll be able to acquire a server with no Control Panel, so you'll have more freedom with regard to what you can do with the machine via SSH. In case you have less experience, yet you need Debian for a particular piece of software, you'll be able to obtain the server with our Hepsia Control Panel. Although the root access is more limited, you will be able to do anything related to your world wide web content without difficulty using an easy to use graphical interface. When you add the optional Managed Services bundle to your dedicated server package, our system administrators will deal with the weekly OS enhancements. They'll perform other useful tasks for you as well.
