Debian is a Linux release, that is widespread for desktop computers, however it has been becoming more popular as a server Operating System over the last couple of years as well. It is really stable and protected, since fixes are released in just a couple of days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a vast support community, so if you have any kind of questions or issues with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it includes, you'll be able to contact the developers without delay through email using special mailing lists and receive a reply within 15-20 minutes. The Debian community offers the best level of support possible, since all your questions will be handled by the same people that built Debian in the first place, so they have an exhaustive knowledge of how their system functions. Since the Operating System is absolutely free to use and distribute, no license charges will be included with your website hosting fees and you can change the program code files and any other software that you install with no restrictions, in order to optimize the software environment for your web sites. In addition, Debian performs really well on any kind of hardware, because it is light and quick and doesn't need a lot of memory.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You will be able to select the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server with a single click on our registration page and depending on your choice, we'll install the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS on your machine, so that the software that you will install later will work in the very best way. Picking a server without any Control Panel, you'll get Debian and the Apache web server software and you're able to control everything through a console. A server which is acquired with the Hepsia Control Panel will include all the software which you will need for your websites. Although with the latter option the root access is restricted, you are able to control the server as if it were a shared hosting account, therefore you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you do not have previous expertise in this kind of hosting service. When you buy the Managed Services upgrade, we'll maintain your server and will update its OS on a weekly basis to make sure that you have the most recent and most risk-free version.
