Debian is an Operating System which uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually set up on desktop computers, it's being used on more and more web servers too. The reason is that it is very stable, so a server running it won't need to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being one of the most secure Operating Systems nowadays, due to the fact that security patches are released within days after an issue is discovered. This is possible since thousands of skilled developers are working for 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 mailing lists and reply within twenty minutes to any question. Thus, you'll get 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 - more than 30,000. As the Operating System costs nothing to use, you are able to modify both the core as well as any of the packages in the way you see fit. Furthermore, you will not need to pay any license fees.
Debian in Dedicated Web Hosting
Each and every dedicated server
that we supply can be installed with Debian and we'll test the software environment carefully before we hand over your server in order to make sure that it'll perform perfectly. You're able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version during the sign-up process, so the applications that you install can get the maximum out of your server. We will also keep your Operating System up-to-date when you add the additional Managed Services package to your plan. When you get your Debian-driven server without a 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 will need to be more experienced, since all the tasks will be performed using a Secure Shell console. When you get your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will receive a web interface, via which you will be able to control domains, files, databases, etcetera, and this might be a better option when you aren't very experienced, but a particular app that you want to use requires Debian. You will have access to your Hepsia-equipped server via SSH as well, yet the things which you'll be able to do will be restricted.
