Debian is a Linux release, which is widespread for desktop computers, yet it's been gaining popularity as a server Operating System over the last few years too. It's very dependable and safe, as fixes are released in a couple of days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a vast support community, so when you have any questions or issues with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it includes, you can easily 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, since all of your questions will be handled by exactly the same people that built Debian in the first place, so they have an exhaustive knowledge of how their own system functions. As the Operating System is absolutely free to use and distribute, no license costs will be added to your web hosting fees and you can modify the code files and any additional software which you install with no restrictions, so as to optimize the software environment for your sites. Furthermore, Debian performs really well on any hardware, as it is light and efficient and doesn't need much memory.
Debian in Dedicated Web Hosting
32-bit and 64-bit editions of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you're able to choose any of them with only a click for your new server, based on what software environment the apps that you would like to use require for optimal performance. You can also choose whether our Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on the server or whether it should come without a 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 web hosting account, while the second option is good for more experienced users who wish to have more control, due to the fact that ‘no Control Panel' means only Debian and the Apache web server software, but no other software set up on the server whatsoever. We will also save you time and effort with the Managed Services upgrade, as it comes with regular Operating System updates, to ensure that you will have a safe and stable Debian installation.
