Debian is a Linux release, which is widely used for desktop computers, however it's been gaining in popularity as a server OS during the last couple of years as well. It's very stable and risk-free, since fixes are released in a few days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a large support community, so if you have any kind of questions or issues with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it includes, you will be able to contact the developers straight away via electronic mail using special mailing lists and receive a reply within 15-20 minutes. The Debian community gives you the top level of support possible, since all your questions will be handled by the same people that created Debian in the first place, so they have an in-depth knowledge of how their system functions. As the Operating System is free to use and distribute, no license costs will be included with your hosting fees and you can customize the program code files and any additional software which you install with no restrictions, to optimize the software environment for your web sites. What's more, Debian performs really well on any kind of hardware, because it's light and quick and doesn't require much memory.
Debian in Dedicated Hosting
32-bit and 64-bit editions of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you'll be able to choose any of them with just a single click for your brand new machine, based on what software environment the applications which you want to use require for optimal performance. You can also select if our Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on the server or whether it should come without Control Panel at all. The first option is suitable for less experienced users who want a Debian-powered server, but wish to manage it like a shared web hosting account, whereas the second option is good for more experienced users who would like to have more control, since ‘no Control Panel' stands for only Debian and the Apache web server software, and no other software installed on the server whatsoever. We'll also save you time and effort with our Managed Services upgrade, as it comes with routine Operating System updates, so that you'll have a secure and stable Debian installation.
