Debian is a Linux release, that is preffered for desktop computers, however it's been gaining popularity as a server Operating System over the last few years too. It is really dependable and protected, as fixes are released in a couple of days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a huge 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're able to contact the developers directly through e-mail using special mailing lists and receive a response in 15-20 min. The Debian community offers the best level of support possible, since all of your questions will be handled by exactly the same people that created Debian in the first place, so they have a detailed knowledge of how their system works. Because the Operating System is 100% free to use and distribute, no license charges will be added to your website hosting fees and you'll be able to change the program code files and any additional software which you install without any restrictions, so as to optimize the software environment for your Internet sites. What's more, Debian performs very well on any kind of hardware, as it's light and quick and doesn't need much memory.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
Each dedicated server that we supply can be set up with Debian and we'll test the program environment completely before we hand over the machine in order to ensure that it'll perform flawlessly. You're able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version during the sign-up process, so the applications that you install can get the maximum out of your server. We can also maintain your Operating System up-to-date if you add the additional Managed Services package to your plan. In case you order your Debian-driven server without a web hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to do anything you want with your machine and you'll have full root-level access, yet you will need to be more skillful, since all the tasks will be performed using a Secure Shell console. If you get your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll get a web interface, via which you can control domains, files, databases, etcetera, and this might be a better option in case you are not very experienced, but a specific app that you want to use requires Debian. You'll have access to your Hepsia-equipped server through SSH too, however the things that you're able to do are limited.
