Debian is a Linux release, which is preffered for desktop machines, but it has been gaining in popularity as a server Operating System during the last few years too. It's really stable and safe, since fixes are released in a few days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a vast support community, so if you have any kind of questions or issues with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it features, you will be able to contact the developers without delay via e-mail using special e-mail lists and receive a response in 15-20 min. The Debian community gives you the best level of support possible, since all of your questions will be handled by the same people that created Debian in the first place, so they have a thorough knowledge of how their own system functions. As the Operating System is 100% free to use and distribute, no license costs will be included with your hosting fees and you will be able to modify the program code files and any additional software which you install without restrictions, so as to optimize the software environment for your sites. In addition, Debian performs very well on any hardware, as it's light and fast and does not require a lot of memory.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
Each dedicated server that we supply can be set up with Debian and we will test the program environment in detail before we hand over your server to make sure that it'll perform properly. You will be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release throughout the signup process, so that the apps which you install can get the maximum out of your server. We can also keep your OS up-to-date if you add the optional Managed Services package to your plan. In case you obtain your Debian-driven server without a hosting Control Panel, you will be able to do anything you like with the machine and you'll have full root-level access, but you will need to be more skillful, because all of the tasks will be performed using a Secure Shell console. When you order your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you'll receive a web interface, through which you'll be able to manage domains, files, databases, etcetera, and this might be the best option when you aren't very experienced, and a certain application that you'd like to use requires Debian. You'll have access to your Hepsia-equipped server via SSH too, but the things which you will be able to do will be limited.
