Debian is a Linux distribution, that's widely used for desktop machines, but it has been gaining popularity as a server OS over the last couple of years as well. It is really stable and secure, because fixes are released in just a few days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a large support community, so when you have any kind of questions or troubles with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it includes, you can easily contact the developers directly via email using special mailing lists and receive a response within 15-20 minutes. The Debian community gives you the top level of support possible, since all of your questions will be handled by the very same people that built Debian in the first place, so they have a thorough knowledge of how their system functions. Since the Operating System is absolutely free to use and distribute, no license costs will be added to your website hosting fees and you will be able to modify the code files and any additional software which you install without restrictions, so as to optimize the software environment for your Internet sites. Furthermore, Debian performs really well on any hardware, as it's light and effective and does not need a lot of memory.
Debian in Dedicated Web Hosting
You can choose the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server with just a click on our registration page and according to your choice, we'll install 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 perform in the best possible way. Selecting a server without Control Panel, you will receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you will be able to manage everything through a console. A server that's ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel will feature all the software which you will need for your web sites. Though with the latter option the root access is restricted, you will be able to control the server as if it were a shared website hosting account, so you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you don't have previous expertise in this kind of website hosting service. When you get our Managed Services upgrade, we will maintain your server and will update its OS every week so as to ensure that you have the latest and most risk-free release.
