Debian is a Linux distribution, that's widely used for desktop machines, but it has been becoming more popular as a server OS over the last few years too. It is really stable and safe, since fixes are released within a couple of days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a large support community, so if you have any questions or problems with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it features, you can contact the developers straight away through email using special mailing lists and receive a response in just 15-20 minutes. The Debian community offers the best level of support possible, as your questions will be handled by the same people who created Debian in the first place, so they have an in-depth knowledge of how their own system functions. Since the Operating System is free to use and distribute, no license charges will be included with your website hosting fees and you will be able to change the code files and any other software that you install without restrictions, so as to optimize the software environment for your sites. Furthermore, Debian performs very well on any hardware, because it is light and quick and does not need a lot of memory.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You can pick the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server with just a mouse click on our registration page and according to your choice, we'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS on the machine, to ensure that the software that you'll install later will work in the best way. Selecting a server devoid of Control Panel, you'll get Debian and the Apache web server software and you are able to manage everything using a console. A server which is ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel will include all the software which you'll need for your websites. Although with the latter option the root access will be limited, you're able to manage the server as if it were a shared web hosting account, therefore you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you don't have previous experience with this type of hosting service. When you buy our Managed Services upgrade, we will take care of your server and will update its OS on a weekly basis in order to ensure that you have the most current and most secure version.
