Debian is a Linux distribution, which is widely used for desktop machines, however it has been gaining in popularity as a server Operating System over the last couple of years as well. It is really stable and risk-free, because fixes are released in a couple of days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a vast support community, so if you have any questions or issues with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it features, you will be able to contact the developers without delay via e-mail using special mailing lists and receive a reply within 15-20 minutes. The Debian community offers the top level of support possible, as your questions will be handled by exactly the same people that created Debian in the first place, so they have a thorough knowledge of how their own system functions. As the Operating System is absolutely free to use and distribute, no license costs will be included with your website hosting fees and you will be able to customize the code files and any additional software which you install without any restrictions, to optimize the software environment for your sites. What's more, Debian performs really well on any kind of hardware, because it's light and fast and doesn't need much memory.
Debian in Dedicated Hosting
32-bit and 64-bit releases of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you can select all of them with just a click for your brand new server, based on what software environment the applications that you plan to use require for the best performance. You may also choose if our Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on the server or whether it should come without Control Panel at all. The first option is made for less experienced users who need a Debian-powered server, but wish to manage it like a shared web hosting account, while the second option is good for more advanced users who want to have more control, because ‘no Control Panel' stands for only Debian and the Apache web server software, but no other software installed on the server at all. We'll also save you time and effort with our Managed Services upgrade, because it includes routine Operating System updates, to ensure that you'll have a secure and stable Debian installation.
