Debian is a Linux distribution, that's widely used for desktop computers, but it has been gaining popularity as a server OS during the last few years too. It is really stable and protected, as fixes are released in just a few days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a large support community, so when you have any kind of questions or troubles with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it is equipped with, you'll be able to contact the developers right away via electronic mail using special mailing lists and receive a response in just 15-20 min. The Debian community provides the top level of support possible, since all your questions will be handled by the same people that made Debian in the first place, so they have a detailed knowledge of how their own system works. Since the Operating System is free to use and distribute, no license charges will be added to your hosting fees and you'll be able to customize the program code files and any additional software which you install without any restrictions, so as to optimize the software environment for your sites. What's more, Debian performs really well on any kind of hardware, because it is light and efficient and doesn't need a lot of memory.
Debian in Dedicated Web Hosting
32-bit and 64-bit versions of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you'll be able to choose all of them with only a single click for your brand new machine, based on what software environment the apps which you want to use require for optimal performance. You can also choose if our Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on the server or if it should come without a Control Panel at all. The first option is made for less experienced users who want a Debian-powered server, yet would like to manage it like a shared hosting account, whereas the second option is good for more advanced users who would like to have more control, as ‘no Control Panel' stands for only Debian and the Apache web server software, but no other software set up on the server at all. We can also save your time and effort with the Managed Services upgrade, as it features regular Operating System updates, to ensure that you'll have a safe and stable Debian installation.
