Debian is an OS which uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually set up on desktop computers, it is 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 need to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be one of the most risk-free Operating Systems nowadays, because security patches are released within days after a problem is discovered. This is possible because thousands of qualified developers work 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 mailing lists and reply in twenty minutes to any question. Thus, you will receive top-level 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 releases with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. As the Operating System is free to use, you can modify both the core as well as all of the packages in any way you see fit. In addition, you will not need to pay any license fees.

Debian in Dedicated Servers

Each and every dedicated server that we offer can be installed with Debian and we will test the program environment completely before we hand over the machine to make sure that it will perform appropriately. You are able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version throughout the signup process, so the applications which you set up will be able to get the maximum out of your server. We will also maintain your OS up-to-date if you add the additional Managed Services package to your plan. If you order your Debian-driven server without a web hosting Control Panel, you will be able to do anything you want with the machine and you'll have full root-level access, however you'll 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 hosting Control Panel, you will have a web interface, through which you can control domains, files, databases, etc, and this might be the best option when you aren't very experienced, but a specific application which you'd like to use requires Debian. You can access your Hepsia-equipped server via SSH too, however the things that you're able to do are limited.
