Debian is a Linux release, that's preffered for desktop computers, but it has been becoming more popular as a server Operating System during the last couple of years as well. It's really dependable and protected, because fixes are released in a few days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a huge support community, so when you have any questions or troubles with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it is equipped with, you can easily contact the developers immediately through email using special e-mail lists and receive a response in 15-20 min. The Debian community provides the top level of support possible, since your questions will be handled by the same people who made Debian in the first place, so they have a thorough knowledge of how their system works. Because the Operating System is free to use and distribute, no license costs will be included with your website hosting fees and you can change the program code files and any other software that you install without any restrictions, so as to optimize the software environment for your sites. In addition, Debian performs very well on any kind of hardware, because it's light and quick and does not require much memory.
Debian in Dedicated Web Hosting
You are able to select the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with just a single click on our registration page and according to your choice, we will set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS on the machine, so that the software that you will install later will perform in the right way. Choosing a server without Control Panel, you'll receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you are able to manage everything using a console. A server which is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel will come with all the software which you'll need for your web sites. Though with the latter option the root access is limited, you will be able to control the server as if it were a shared website hosting account, thus you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you do not have previous experience with this type of hosting service. If you get the Managed Services upgrade, we'll maintain your server and will update its OS on a weekly basis so as to ensure that you have the most recent and most safe version.
