Debian is an OS which uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually installed on desktops, it's being used on more and more web servers as well. The reason is that it is really stable, so a server running it will not need to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be among the most secure Operating Systems nowadays, due to the fact that security patches are released within days after a problem is found. This is possible since thousands of well-trained developers are employed by the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, in addition, they provide 24/7 support by using special mailing lists and respond in twenty minutes to any question. Thus, you'll receive 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 one of the Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. Since the Operating System is absolutely free to use, you're able to modify both the core as well as all the packages in any way you see fit. Furthermore, you will not be required to pay any license fees.
Debian in Dedicated Web Hosting
Each and every dedicated server that we provide can be set up with Debian and we will test the program environment thoroughly before we hand over your machine in order to make sure that it'll perform flawlessly. You're able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version during the sign-up process, so the applications which you install can get the maximum out of your server. We can also keep your OS up-to-date when you add the additional Managed Services package to your plan. If you order your Debian-driven server without a website hosting Control Panel, you will be able to do anything you want with your machine and you'll have full root-level access, however you'll have to be more experienced, because all the tasks will be performed using a Secure Shell console. If you get your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will have a web interface, via which you can control domains, files, databases, etc, and this might be the best option when you aren't very experienced, and a specific app which you'd like to use requires Debian. You can access your Hepsia-equipped server via SSH too, however the things which you will be able to do are limited.
