Debian is a Linux release, which is preffered for desktop machines, but it has been becoming more popular as a server Operating System during the last couple of years as well. It's really stable and secure, due to the fact that fixes are released in a couple of days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a huge support community, so when you have any kind of questions or troubles with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it comes with, you'll be able to contact the developers right away via electronic mail using special e-mail lists and receive a reply in just 15-20 min. The Debian community supplies the best level of support possible, because your questions will be handled by exactly the same people that made Debian in the first place, so they have an in-depth knowledge of how their own system functions. Since the Operating System is free to use and distribute, no license charges will be added to your hosting fees and you will be able to change the code files and any additional software that you install without restrictions, in order to optimize the software environment for your Internet sites. In addition, Debian performs really well on any kind of hardware, as it's light and efficient and does not need a lot of memory.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
Each dedicated server that we offer can be installed with Debian and we'll test the software environment completely before we hand over your server so as to make sure that it'll perform perfectly. You'll be able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version during the registration process, so that the applications which you install will be able to get the maximum out of your server. We will also keep your OS up-to-date when you add the additional Managed Services package to your plan. In case you order your Debian-driven server without a web hosting Control Panel, you can do anything you like with your machine and you'll have full root-level access, however you'll need to be more experienced, since all the tasks will be performed using a Secure Shell console. If you obtain your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you'll receive a web interface, through which you can control domains, files, databases, etc, and this might be the best option if you aren't very experienced, but a specific app which you need to use requires Debian. You will have access to your Hepsia-equipped server through SSH as well, however the things which you can do will be limited.
