Debian is an OS that uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually set up on desktop machines, it's being used on a growing number of web servers as well. The reason is that it's very stable, so a server running it won't have to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be one of the most protected Operating Systems you can get, because security patches are released within days after an issue is discovered. This is possible because thousands of experienced developers are part of 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 mailing lists and reply within twenty minutes to any kind of question. Thus, you'll get 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 one of several Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. As the Operating System is completely free to use, you're able to modify both the core and all of the packages in the way you see fit. Also, you will not be required to pay any kind of license fees.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
32-bit and 64-bit versions of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you are able to pick any of them with only a mouse 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 whether our Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on the server or whether it should come without Control Panel at all. The first option is made for inexperienced users who need a Debian-powered server, but wish to manage it like a shared website hosting account, while the second option is good for more advanced users who would like to have more control, since ‘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 you time and effort with the Managed Services upgrade, as it includes routine Operating System updates, to ensure that you'll have a secure and stable Debian installation.
