Debian is an OS that uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually set up on desktop computers, it is being used on an increasing number of web servers too. The reason is that it's very stable, so a server running it won't have to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being among the most protected Operating Systems available, since security patches are released within days after a problem is found. This is possible because thousands of skilled developers are part of the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, they also provide 24/7 support by using special e-mail lists and respond within 20 min to any kind of question. Thus, you will have 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 among the Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. As the Operating System is absolutely free to use, you are able to modify both the core as well as all of the packages in the way you see fit. Also, you won't need to pay any license fees.
Debian in Dedicated Web Hosting
With all of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages, you'll be able to get a hosting powerhouse running Debian in no time. This Operating System is among the options that you'll get throughout the registration process and you're able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit release, depending on what software environment your applications need. If you need to have full root access, you can obtain a server without a Control Panel, so you'll have more freedom in terms of what you can do with your machine via SSH. If you have less experience, yet you need Debian for a particular piece of software, you can order the server with our Hepsia Control Panel. Although the root access is more limited, you can do anything related to your web content easily via an easy to use graphical interface. When you add the optional Managed Services bundle to your dedicated server plan, our system administrators will take care of the weekly OS enhancements. They will perform various other important tasks on your behalf as well.
