Debian is a Linux distribution, that is preffered for desktop computers, but it's been becoming more popular as a server Operating System over the last couple of years as well. It's very dependable and risk-free, because fixes are released in a couple of days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a vast support community, so when you have any kind of questions or troubles with the OS or with some 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 in 15-20 minutes. The Debian community gives you the best level of support possible, because your questions will be handled by the same people that created Debian in the first place, so they have a thorough knowledge of how their own system functions. Since the Operating System is absolutely free to use and distribute, no license costs will be added to your hosting fees and you will be able to change the program code files and any additional software which you install with no restrictions, in order to optimize the software environment for your Internet sites. What's more, Debian performs really well on any hardware, because it is light and efficient and does not need much memory.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You are able to pick the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with just a mouse click on our registration page and based on your choice, we'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS on the machine, so that the software that you will install later will work in the best possible way. With a server without any Control Panel, you will get Debian and the Apache web server software and you're able to manage everything using a console. A server that's acquired with our Hepsia Control Panel will feature all of the software that you may need for your web sites. Though with the latter option the root access will be limited, you will be able to manage 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 type of web hosting service. If you order the Managed Services upgrade, we will take care of your server and will update its OS on a weekly basis in order to make sure that you have the most current and most secure release.
