Debian is a Linux release, which is widely used for desktop computers, yet it's been becoming more popular as a server OS over the last few years too. It is really stable and safe, due to the fact that fixes are released within a couple of days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a vast support community, so when you have any kind of questions or issues with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it comes with, you are able to contact the developers right away through email using special mailing lists and receive a reply in just 15-20 min. The Debian community gives you the top level of support possible, as your questions will be handled by exactly the same people who created Debian in the first place, so they have an exhaustive knowledge of how their own system functions. Because the Operating System is 100% free to use and distribute, no license charges will be included with your web hosting fees and you can modify the program code files and any other software which you install without restrictions, in order to optimize the software environment for your websites. What's more, Debian performs very well on any hardware, because it is light and efficient and does not require much memory.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You can pick the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with just a mouse click on our order page and based on your choice, we will set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS on your machine, to ensure that the software that you'll install later will work in the very best way. Using a server without any Control Panel, you'll receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you're able to control everything using a console. A server that is obtained with the Hepsia Control Panel will come with all the software that you'll need for your Internet sites. Although with the latter option the root access is restricted, you'll be 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. If you purchase the Managed Services upgrade, we will maintain your server and will update its OS on a weekly basis to ensure that you have the latest and most secure edition.
