Debian is a Linux release, that is preffered for desktop machines, but it's been becoming more popular as a server Operating System during the last few years too. It is very dependable and risk-free, since fixes are released in a couple of days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a large support community, so if you have any questions or problems with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it comes with, you are able to contact the developers straight away via e-mail using special mailing lists and receive a reply in 15-20 min. The Debian community supplies the top level of support possible, because your questions will be handled by the very same people that created Debian in the first place, so they have an in-depth knowledge of how their system works. Because the Operating System is absolutely free to use and distribute, no license charges will be added to your website hosting fees and you will be able to change the code files and any additional software which you install without any restrictions, in order to optimize the software environment for your web sites. In addition, Debian performs really well on any kind of hardware, because it's light and fast and does not need much memory.
Debian in Dedicated Hosting
Each and every dedicated server that we offer can be set up with Debian and we'll test the program environment carefully before we hand over your server to ensure that it'll perform properly. You can choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release during the signup process, so that the applications which you install can get the maximum out of your server. We will also maintain your OS up-to-date when you add the additional Managed Services package to your plan. When you order your Debian-driven server without a hosting Control Panel, you can do anything you like with the machine and you will have full root-level access, but you'll have to be more skillful, because all the tasks will be performed using a Secure Shell console. When you acquire your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will have a web interface, through which you'll be able to manage domains, files, databases, etcetera, and this might be the best option in case you are not very experienced, and a certain application that you want to use requires Debian. You can access your Hepsia-equipped server through SSH as well, but the things that you are able to do are restricted.
