Debian is an Operating System that uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually installed 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 one of the most risk-free Operating Systems in existence, because security patches are released within days after a problem is found. This is possible because thousands of well-trained developers are part of the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, in addition, they provide 24/7 support via special e-mail lists and respond within twenty minutes to any kind of question. Thus, you will receive 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 among the Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. As the Operating System costs nothing to use, you'll be able to modify both the core as well as any of the packages in any way you see fit. Furthermore, you will not have to pay any kind of license fees.
Debian in Dedicated Hosting
With each of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages, you're able to have a hosting powerhouse running Debian right away. This Operating System is among the options that you will get during the registration process and you are able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit version, depending on what software environment your apps need. When you would like to have full root access, you are able to get a server without a Control Panel, so you'll have more freedom with regard to what you can do with the machine using SSH. In case you have less experience, but you need Debian for a certain computer program, you can obtain the server with our Hepsia Control Panel. Even though the root access is more limited, you are able to do anything related to your web content easily using a user-friendly graphical interface. When you add the optional Managed Services bundle to your dedicated server plan, our system administrators will deal with the weekly OS updates. They will perform many other useful tasks on your behalf as well.
