Debian is a Linux distribution, which is widely used for desktop machines, yet it has been gaining in popularity as a server OS during the last few years as well. It's very stable and risk-free, due to the fact that fixes are released in just a few days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a huge support community, so if you have any kind of questions or issues with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it is equipped with, you are able to contact the developers immediately through email using special e-mail lists and receive a response in 15-20 minutes. The Debian community supplies the top level of support possible, because your questions will be handled by exactly the same people that built Debian in the first place, so they have a thorough knowledge of how their system functions. Since the Operating System is 100% free to use and distribute, no license charges will be included with your website hosting fees and you'll be able to customize the program code files and any other software which you install without restrictions, to optimize the software environment for your websites. What's more, Debian performs very well on any hardware, because it is light and effective and doesn't 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 are able to choose all of them with just a click for your new server, depending on what software environment the apps which you wish to use require for the best 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 suitable for inexperienced users who want a Debian-powered server, yet would like to control it like a shared website hosting account, whereas the second option is good for more experienced users who want to have more control, due to the fact that ‘no Control Panel' means only Debian and the Apache web server software, and no other software installed on the server whatsoever. We will also save you time and effort with our Managed Services upgrade, since it features regular Operating System updates, to ensure that you will have a secure and stable Debian installation.
