Debian is an Operating System which uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually set up on desktops, it is being used on a growing number of web servers as well. The reason is that it's really stable, so a server running it will not need to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be one of the most safe Operating Systems to be found, due to the fact that security patches are released within days after an issue is found. This is possible because thousands of well-experienced developers are working for the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, but they also provide 24/7 support by using special e-mail lists and respond in 20 minutes to any question. Thus, you'll receive 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 costs nothing to use, you are able to modify both the core and any of the packages in any way you see fit. Furthermore, you won't have to pay any kind of license fees.

Debian in Dedicated Web Hosting

Each dedicated server that we provide can be set up with Debian and we will test the software environment completely before we hand over your server so as to ensure that it will perform flawlessly. You can choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version throughout the registration process, so the applications that you set up can get the maximum out of your server. We will also keep your Operating System up-to-date when you add the additional Managed Services package to your plan. If you acquire your Debian-driven server without a website hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to do anything you like with your machine and you'll have full root-level access, however you will have to be more skillful, because all the tasks will be performed using a Secure Shell console. If you acquire your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will get a web interface, via which you can manage domains, files, databases, etcetera, and this might be a better option when you aren't very experienced, and a specific app which you want to use requires Debian. You have access to your Hepsia-equipped server via SSH as well, yet the things which you are able to do are limited.
