Debian is a Linux distribution, that's preffered for desktop machines, but it has been becoming more popular as a server Operating System during the last couple of years too. It is very stable and protected, because fixes are released in a few days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a huge support community, so if you have any kind of questions or troubles with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it features, you're able to contact the developers directly through email using special e-mail lists and receive a reply in just 15-20 minutes. The Debian community offers the best level of support possible, as your questions will be handled by the very same people that created Debian in the first place, so they have a thorough knowledge of how their own system operates. Since the Operating System is 100% free to use and distribute, no license costs will be included with your hosting fees and you will be able to change the program code files and any additional software that you install with no restrictions, so as to optimize the software environment for your Internet sites. What's more, Debian performs very well on any kind of hardware, as it is light and quick and does not require a lot of memory.
Debian in Dedicated Hosting
32-bit and 64-bit versions of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you will be able to choose all of them with only a mouse click for your new server, depending on what software environment the applications that you want to use require for the best performance. You may also select if our Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on the server or if it should come without any Control Panel at all. The first option is made for inexperienced users who want a Debian-powered server, but want to manage it like a shared website hosting account, whereas the second option is good for more advanced users who wish to have more control, since ‘no Control Panel' means only Debian and the Apache web server software, but no other software set up on the server whatsoever. We'll also save you time and effort with the Managed Services upgrade, since it comes with routine Operating System updates, to ensure that you will have a safe and stable Debian installation.
