Debian is a Linux release, which is widespread for desktop computers, but it's been gaining popularity as a server OS over the last couple of years too. It's really stable and secure, because fixes are released in just a couple of days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a vast support community, so when you have any questions or troubles with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it is equipped with, you are able to contact the developers immediately through electronic mail using special mailing lists and receive a response in 15-20 min. The Debian community supplies the top level of support possible, because your questions will be handled by the same people who made Debian in the first place, so they have an exhaustive knowledge of how their system operates. Because the Operating System is free to use and distribute, no license costs will be included with your hosting fees and you will be able to modify the code files and any other software that you install with no restrictions, to optimize the software environment for your web sites. What's more, Debian performs really well on any hardware, as it's light and efficient and doesn't need much memory.
Debian in Dedicated Hosting
With each of our Linux dedicated servers hosting packages, you're able to obtain a website hosting powerhouse running Debian right away. This Operating System is one of the options that you'll get during the registration process and you'll be able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit version, depending on what software environment your apps need. When you need to have full root access, you are able to obtain a server without a Control Panel, so you'll have more freedom in terms of what you can do with the machine via SSH. When you have less experience, but you need Debian for a certain computer program, you are able to purchase the server with our Hepsia Control Panel. Even though the root access will be more limited, you are able to do anything related to your web content without difficulty using an easy to use graphical interface. When you add the optional Managed Services bundle to your dedicated server package, our system administrators will deal with the weekly OS updates. They will perform some other important tasks for you too.
