Debian is a Linux release, that is widely used for desktop computers, yet it's been becoming more popular as a server Operating System over the last few years too. It's very stable and safe, since fixes are released within a few days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a huge support community, so when you have any kind of questions or problems with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it features, you are able to contact the developers straight away via electronic mail using special mailing lists and receive a reply in 15-20 min. The Debian community gives you the best level of support possible, as all of your questions will be handled by the very same people that built Debian in the first place, so they have an exhaustive knowledge of how their system operates. Since the Operating System is 100% free to use and distribute, no license charges will be added to your hosting fees and you can change the code files and any additional software that you install without any restrictions, to optimize the software environment for your sites. What's more, Debian performs very well on any hardware, as it's light and quick and does not need much memory.
Debian in Dedicated Web Hosting
32-bit and 64-bit versions of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you're able to select all of them with only a click for your new server, based on what software environment the apps that you want to use require for the best performance. You can also select if our Hepsia Control Panel should be set up on the server or if it should come with no Control Panel at all. The first option is suitable for inexperienced users who need a Debian-powered server, yet want to control it like a shared website hosting account, whereas the second option is good for more advanced users who wish to have more control, as ‘no Control Panel' stands for only Debian and the Apache web server software, but no other software installed on the server whatsoever. We'll also save you time and effort with our Managed Services upgrade, since it features regular Operating System updates, to ensure that you'll have a secure and stable Debian installation.
