Debian is a Linux release, which is widespread for desktop computers, but it's been gaining in popularity as a server OS during the last few years as well. It's really dependable and secure, as fixes are released in a couple of days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a large support community, so if you have any kind of questions or problems with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it comes with, you're able to contact the developers right away via email using special mailing lists and receive a reply in just 15-20 minutes. The Debian community gives you the best level of support possible, as your questions will be handled by exactly the same people that built 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 will be able to modify the code files and any additional software that you install with no restrictions, so as to optimize the software environment for your 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 Hosting
You're able to choose the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with just a 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 best 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 that is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel will include all of the software which you will need for your websites. Though with the latter option the root access will be limited, you're able to control the server as if it were a shared web hosting account, which means that you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you do not have previous experience with this kind of hosting service. When you get the Managed Services upgrade, we will maintain your server and will update its OS every week in order to ensure that you have the most recent and most risk-free release.
