Debian is a Linux distribution, that is widely used for desktop machines, however it's been gaining popularity as a server OS during the last few years as well. It's really dependable and secure, as fixes are released in a couple of days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a large 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're able to contact the developers immediately via email using special e-mail lists and receive a reply within 15-20 min. The Debian community offers the best level of support possible, since your questions will be handled by the very same people that built Debian in the first place, so they have a detailed knowledge of how their system works. As the Operating System is free to use and distribute, no license charges will be added to your website hosting fees and you can customize the program code files and any other software that you install without any restrictions, in order to optimize the software environment for your Internet sites. Furthermore, Debian performs very well on any kind of hardware, because it is light and effective and does not require a lot of memory.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
32-bit and 64-bit versions of Debian are available on our dedicated server order page and you can select any of them with just a mouse click for your brand new server, based on what software environment the applications which you plan to use require for the best performance. You may also choose whether our Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on the server or if it should come without Control Panel at all. The first option is suitable for inexperienced users who need a Debian-powered server, but wish to control it like a shared website hosting account, whereas the second option is good for more advanced users who need to have more control, since ‘no Control Panel' stands for only Debian and the Apache web server software, but no other software installed on the server at all. We can also save your time and effort with the Managed Services upgrade, since it features routine Operating System updates, to ensure that you will have a secure and stable Debian installation.
