Debian is a preferred Linux release, which is used mainly on personal computers, however many people have started using it lately as a web server OS as well, because of the stability and security it offers. The latter is a direct result the fact that Debian is developed and supported by thousands of qualified volunteers internationally, which means that any patch that is required to fix a certain issue is released within a couple of days. The very same community will also help you with any question or problem which a user may ever experience, because they can be contacted through electronic mail using e-mail lists and a competent response will be sent in around 15-20 min. The advantage here is that your questions will be addressed by the same people who have designed the Operating System itself and they have a detailed knowledge of how it works. As Debian is provided for free, you won't have to pay any license fees to use it and you can customize it as much as you want or need. This is valid for both the Operating System and the 30.000+ software packages that are available for it.
Debian in Dedicated Hosting
You will be able to pick the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with a single click on our order page and depending on your choice, we will set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS on your machine, to ensure that the software that you will install later will perform in the right way. With a server without any Control Panel, you will get Debian and the Apache web server software and you're able to manage everything through a console. A server that is obtained with the Hepsia Control Panel will feature all the software that you will need for your Internet sites. Though with the latter option the root access is restricted, you will be able to manage the server as if it were a shared website hosting account, so you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you do not have previous expertise in this kind of website hosting service. If you get the Managed Services upgrade, we'll maintain your server and will update its OS every week so as to make sure that you have the latest and most risk-free version.
