Debian is an OS that uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually installed on desktop computers, it is being used on more and more web servers too. The reason is that it is very stable, so a server running it will not need to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being one of the most risk-free Operating Systems to choose from, since security patches are released within days after an issue is discovered. This is possible since thousands of experienced 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 e-mail lists and reply in twenty minutes to any kind of question. Thus, you'll enjoy an outstanding level of support directly from the developers who know their own platform in depth, and not from a third-party support team. Debian is also among the Linux releases with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. Since the Operating System is absolutely free to use, you will be able to modify both the core and any of the packages in any way you see fit. In addition, you won't have to pay any license fees.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
32-bit and 64-bit editions of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you're able to pick any of them with just a single click for your new server, depending on what software environment the apps that you plan to use require for optimal performance. You can also select if our Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on the server or whether it should come without any Control Panel at all. The first option is made for inexperienced users who want a Debian-powered server, yet would like to control it like a shared hosting account, whereas the second option is good for more advanced users who would like 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'll also save your time and effort with the Managed Services upgrade, as it features regular Operating System updates, to ensure that you will have a safe and stable Debian installation.
