Debian is a Linux distribution, that is widely used for desktop computers, but it has been gaining in popularity as a server Operating System over the last few years too. It's very dependable and risk-free, due to the fact that fixes are released in a few days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a large support community, so if you have any kind of questions or troubles with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it is equipped with, you are able to contact the developers directly through electronic mail using special e-mail lists and receive a reply in 15-20 minutes. The Debian community gives you the top level of support possible, because your questions will be handled by exactly the same people who made Debian in the first place, so they have an exhaustive knowledge of how their own system functions. Because the Operating System is absolutely free to use and distribute, no license costs will be included with your hosting fees and you can 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 is light and efficient and does not need much memory.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You'll be able to pick the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server with just a click on our order page and depending on your choice, we will set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS on your machine, so that the software that you will install later will work in the very best way. With a server with no Control Panel, you'll get Debian and the Apache web server software and you're able to manage everything using a console. A server that is obtained with the Hepsia Control Panel will include all of the software that you will need for your sites. Although with the latter option the root access will be restricted, you will be able to manage the server as if it were a shared web hosting account, therefore you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you have no previous experience with this kind of web hosting service. If you get 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 recent and most secure edition.
