Debian is a Linux release, which is widely used for desktop machines, yet it has been becoming more popular as a server Operating System during the last few years as well. It is really stable and protected, due to the fact that fixes are released within a couple of days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a vast support community, so when you have any questions or issues with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it features, you'll be able to contact the developers without delay via electronic mail using special e-mail lists and receive a response within 15-20 min. The Debian community supplies the top level of support possible, since all your questions will be handled by the same people that built Debian in the first place, so they have an exhaustive knowledge of how their own system functions. Since the Operating System is absolutely free to use and distribute, no license costs will be added to your hosting fees and you will be able to modify the program code files and any additional software that you install with no restrictions, in order to optimize the software environment for your sites. In addition, Debian performs very well on any kind of hardware, because it is light and quick and does not require a lot of memory.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You'll be able to pick the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with just a single click on our registration page and according to your choice, we will install the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS on the machine, so that the software that you'll install later will work in the best way. Picking a server without any Control Panel, you will get Debian and the Apache web server software and you will be able to control everything through a console. A server which is acquired with our Hepsia Control Panel will come with all the software which you'll need for your sites. Even though with the latter option the root access is restricted, you will be able to manage the server as if it were a shared website hosting account, which means that you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you have no previous experience with this kind of website hosting service. If you order the Managed Services upgrade, we will take care of your server and will update its OS every week in order to ensure that you have the latest and most risk-free edition.
