Debian is an Operating System which uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually set up on desktops, it is being used on an increasing number of web servers as well. The reason is that it's 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 to be found, since security patches are released within days after a problem 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, but they also provide 24/7 support via special mailing lists and reply in twenty minutes to any kind of question. Thus, you'll receive 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 one of several Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. As the Operating System is free to use, you can modify both the core and all of the packages in the way you see fit. Furthermore, you will not have to pay any kind of license fees.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
Each dedicated server that we offer can be set up with Debian and we'll test the software environment in detail before we hand over your machine to make sure that it will perform properly. You'll be able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release throughout the sign-up process, so the applications which you install will be able to get the maximum out of your server. We will also maintain your OS up-to-date if you add the additional Managed Services package to your plan. In case you acquire your Debian-driven server without a hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to do anything you want with your machine and you will have full root-level access, yet you'll need to be more experienced, because all of the tasks will be performed through a Secure Shell console. When you order your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will get a web interface, through which you will be able to control domains, files, databases, etcetera, and this might be the best option if you aren't very experienced, and a specific app that you would like to use requires Debian. You'll have access to your Hepsia-equipped server via SSH too, but the things that you're able to do are restricted.
