Debian is a Linux distribution, which is widely used for desktop computers, but it's been gaining popularity as a server OS over the last couple of years as well. It's very stable and safe, due to the fact that fixes are released in just a few days after an issue 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 can easily contact the developers immediately via electronic mail using special mailing lists and receive a reply in 15-20 min. The Debian community gives you the top level of support possible, because all your questions will be handled by the same people who created Debian in the first place, so they have an exhaustive knowledge of how their own system operates. As the Operating System is free to use and distribute, no license charges will be added to your web hosting fees and you will be able to customize the code files and any additional software which you install without restrictions, so as to optimize the software environment for your Internet sites. What's more, Debian performs very well on any hardware, as it's light and effective and doesn't need a lot of memory.

Debian in Dedicated Web Hosting

Each dedicated server that we offer can be installed with Debian and we'll test the software environment carefully before we hand over your server to ensure that it will perform appropriately. You can choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release throughout the signup process, so the apps which you set up will be able to get the maximum out of your server. We will also maintain your Operating System up-to-date if you add the additional Managed Services package to your plan. In case you acquire your Debian-driven server without a hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to do anything you want with your machine and you will have full root-level access, but you'll have to be more experienced, because all of the tasks will be performed using a Secure Shell console. When you acquire your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you'll have a web interface, through which you'll be able to manage domains, files, databases, etcetera, and this might be a better option if you aren't very experienced, but a specific app which you need to use requires Debian. You have access to your Hepsia-equipped server via SSH too, yet the things which you can do are restricted.
