Debian is a Linux distribution, that is widespread for desktop machines, yet it has been becoming more popular as a server OS over the last couple of years too. It's very stable and secure, due to the fact that 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 is equipped with, you'll be able to contact the developers immediately through electronic mail using special e-mail lists and receive a reply in 15-20 minutes. The Debian community provides the top level of support possible, since 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 own system works. Because the Operating System is absolutely free to use and distribute, no license charges will be added to your web hosting fees and you'll be able to change the code files and any additional software that you install without any restrictions, so as to optimize the software environment for your websites. What's more, Debian performs really well on any kind of hardware, because it's light and efficient and does not require a lot of memory.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
32-bit and 64-bit releases of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you're able to choose any of them with just a click for your brand new machine, based on what software environment the applications that you would like to use require for the best performance. You may also select if our Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on the server or if it should come without Control Panel at all. The first option is made for less experienced users who need a Debian-powered server, yet want to control it like a shared 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, 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.
