Debian is a Linux distribution, that's preffered for desktop machines, yet it's been becoming more popular as a server OS during the last couple of years too. It's very stable and secure, because fixes are released within a few days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a large support community, so when you have any questions or problems with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it comes with, you can easily contact the developers without delay via electronic mail using special e-mail lists and receive a response in 15-20 min. The Debian community provides the best level of support possible, because all of your questions will be handled by the very same people who created Debian in the first place, so they have an exhaustive knowledge of how their own system operates. Because the Operating System is free to use and distribute, no license charges will be added to your website hosting fees and you will be able to modify the code files and any other software that you install with no restrictions, so as to optimize the software environment for your websites. Furthermore, Debian performs really well on any kind of hardware, because it's light and efficient and doesn't require much memory.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
Each and every dedicated server that we offer can be set up with Debian and we'll test the program environment thoroughly before we hand over your server to make sure that it'll perform properly. You're able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version during the sign-up process, so the apps which you install can get the maximum out of your server. We will 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 website 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'll need to be more experienced, as all of 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 will be able to control domains, files, databases, etcetera, and this might be a better option if you are not very experienced, but a particular app that you intend to use requires Debian. You will have access to your Hepsia-equipped server through SSH too, however the things which you'll be able to do are limited.
