Debian is a Linux distribution, that's widely used for desktop machines, yet it's been becoming more popular as a server Operating System during the last couple of years as well. It's very stable and secure, as fixes are released in just a few days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a huge support community, so when you have any kind of questions or problems with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it includes, you can easily contact the developers right away through electronic mail using special mailing lists and receive a reply within 15-20 minutes. The Debian community gives you the top level of support possible, since all of your questions will be handled by exactly the same people that made Debian in the first place, so they have a thorough knowledge of how their own system works. As the Operating System is 100% free to use and distribute, no license charges will be included with your hosting fees and you'll be able to modify the program code files and any other software which you install without restrictions, to optimize the software environment for your sites. Furthermore, Debian performs really well on any hardware, because it is light and efficient and doesn't require a lot of memory.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You'll be able to choose the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with only a single click on our registration page and depending on your choice, we'll install the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS on the machine, to ensure that the software that you'll install later will work in the optimal way. Picking a server without any Control Panel, you'll receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you are able to control everything using a console. A server which is acquired with the Hepsia Control Panel will include all of the software which you will need for your sites. Though with the latter option the root access is limited, you'll be able to manage the server as if it were a shared hosting account, so that you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you don't have previous expertise in this kind of hosting service. When you order our Managed Services upgrade, we'll maintain your server and will update its OS weekly so as to make sure that you have the most current and most safe version.
