Debian is a Linux distribution, which is preffered for desktop machines, but it's been gaining popularity as a server OS during the last few years as well. It's very stable and safe, 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 kind of questions or problems with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it includes, you can contact the developers without delay through electronic mail using special mailing lists and receive a reply in 15-20 minutes. The Debian community provides the top level of support possible, since your questions will be handled by the very same people that made Debian in the first place, so they have an exhaustive knowledge of how their own system operates. Since the Operating System is free to use and distribute, no license costs will be included with your web hosting fees and you'll be able to customize the program code files and any other software that you install with no restrictions, in order to optimize the software environment for your Internet sites. In addition, Debian performs really well on any hardware, because it's light and effective and doesn't need 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 so as to ensure that it will perform perfectly. You can select the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release throughout the sign-up process, so that the applications 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. If you obtain your Debian-driven server without a web hosting Control Panel, you can do anything you like with your machine and you'll have full root-level access, yet you'll need to be more experienced, because all of the tasks will be performed through a Secure Shell console. If you obtain your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will receive a web interface, via which you'll be able to manage domains, files, databases, etc, and this might be a better option if you aren't very experienced, but a particular application that you intend to use requires Debian. You'll have access to your Hepsia-equipped server through SSH as well, however the things that you will be able to do are restricted.
