Debian is a Linux distribution, which is widespread for desktop computers, but it's been becoming more popular as a server OS over the last couple of years as well. It's really dependable and risk-free, due to the fact that fixes are released within a couple of days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a large support community, so if you have any questions or troubles with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it is equipped with, you are able to contact the developers directly via email using special mailing lists and receive a response within 15-20 minutes. The Debian community offers the top level of support possible, as your questions will be handled by the same people who built Debian in the first place, so they have a detailed knowledge of how their own system works. As the Operating System is 100% free to use and distribute, no license costs will be added to your web hosting fees and you can customize the code files and any additional software which you install without any restrictions, so as to optimize the software environment for your websites. Furthermore, Debian performs really well on any hardware, because it is light and efficient and doesn't need much memory.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
With each of our dedicated servers, you are able to enjoy a web hosting powerhouse running Debian without delay. This Operating System is among the options that you will get during the registration process and you will be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit release, depending on what software environment your apps need. If you want to have full root access, you're able to order a server with no Control Panel, so you will have more freedom in terms of what you can do with the machine through SSH. When you have less experience, but you need Debian for a specific piece of software, you'll be able to get the server with our Hepsia Control Panel. Regardless that the root access will be more limited, you're able to do anything related to your online content without difficulty through a user-friendly graphical interface. When you add the optional Managed Services bundle to your dedicated server plan, our sysadmins will deal with the weekly OS improvements. They will perform many other important tasks for you as well.
