Debian is an Operating System which uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually installed on desktops, it's being used on an increasing number of web servers too. The reason is that it's 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 safe Operating Systems available, as security patches are released within days after a problem is found. This is possible since thousands of well-trained 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 via special e-mail lists and reply in twenty minutes to any question. Thus, you'll enjoy top-notch support directly from the developers who know their own platform in depth, and not from a third-party support team. Debian is also one of several Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. Since the Operating System is completely free to use, you're able to modify both the core as well as any 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
32-bit and 64-bit editions of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you can choose all of them with just a single click for your brand new server, based on what software environment the apps that you wish to use require for the best performance. You may 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, but want to manage it like a shared hosting account, while the second option is suitable for more experienced users who want to have more control, due to the fact that ‘no Control Panel' means only Debian and the Apache web server software, and no other software installed on the server at all. We will also save your time and effort with our Managed Services upgrade, since it features regular Operating System updates, so that you'll have a safe and stable Debian installation.
