Debian is a Linux release, that's preffered for desktop machines, yet it has been becoming more popular as a server OS over the last few years as well. It is really stable and safe, due to the fact that fixes are released in a couple of days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a vast support community, so if you have any questions or problems with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it features, you can easily contact the developers right away through electronic mail using special mailing lists and receive a response in 15-20 minutes. The Debian community supplies the top level of support possible, because all of your questions will be handled by the very same people who built Debian in the first place, so they have a detailed knowledge of how their system operates. Since the Operating System is 100% free to use and distribute, no license charges will be added to your hosting fees and you'll be able to change the 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, as it is light and effective and does not require a lot of memory.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You're able to pick the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with just a mouse click on our order page and according to your choice, we'll install the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS on your machine, to ensure that the software that you'll install later will perform in the optimal way. Using a server without any Control Panel, you'll receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you'll be able to manage everything using a console. A server that is ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel will come with all of the software which you will need for your web sites. Even though with the latter option the root access will be limited, you can control the server as if it were a shared hosting account, so that you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you have no previous expertise in this type of web hosting service. If you order the Managed Services upgrade, we'll maintain your server and will update its OS every week so as to make sure that you have the latest and most risk-free release.
