Debian is an OS which uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually installed on desktop machines, it is being used on a growing number of web servers too. The reason is that it's very stable, so a server running it won't need to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be among the most safe Operating Systems to be found, because security patches are released within days after a problem is found. This is possible since thousands of skilled developers are working for 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 e-mail lists and respond in 20 min to any kind of question. Thus, you'll get 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 the Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. Since the Operating System is free to use, you are able to modify both the core as well as any of the packages in the way you see fit. Also, you won't have to pay any license fees.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
Each dedicated server that we supply can be installed with Debian and we'll test the software environment in detail before we hand over the machine so as to ensure that it'll perform appropriately. You are able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version throughout the registration process, so the applications that you install can get the maximum out of your server. We will also keep your Operating System up-to-date if you add the additional Managed Services package to your plan. When you obtain your Debian-driven server without a web hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to do anything you like with the machine and you will have full root-level access, yet you will have to be more skillful, since all the tasks will be performed through a Secure Shell console. If you obtain your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you'll have a web interface, through which you can control domains, files, databases, etcetera, and this might be the best option when you aren't very experienced, and a particular application which you want to use requires Debian. You have access to your Hepsia-equipped server via SSH too, however the things which you can do will be limited.
