Debian is a Linux release, which is widely used for desktop computers, but it has been gaining in popularity as a server Operating System over the last few years too. It's really stable and secure, because fixes are released within a couple of days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a vast support community, so if you have any questions or troubles with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it is equipped with, you can easily contact the developers right away via e-mail using special mailing lists and receive a response within 15-20 minutes. The Debian community gives you the best level of support possible, since all of your questions will be handled by the very same people that made Debian in the first place, so they have a detailed knowledge of how their own system works. As the Operating System is 100% free to use and distribute, no license charges will be included with your web hosting fees and you'll be able to customize the program code files and any other software that you install without restrictions, in order to optimize the software environment for your web sites. Furthermore, Debian performs very well on any kind of hardware, as it's light and fast and does not need a lot of memory.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You're able to choose the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with a single click on our order page and depending on your choice, we'll install the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS on the machine, to ensure that the software that you will install later will perform in the right way. Selecting a server without any Control Panel, you will receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you will be able to control everything using a console. A server which is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel will come with all of the software that you will need for your sites. Although with the latter option the root access is restricted, you can manage the server as if it were a shared hosting account, so that you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you have no previous experience with this type of hosting service. When you purchase our Managed Services upgrade, we'll maintain your server and will update its OS every week in order to make sure that you have the latest and most risk-free edition.
