Debian is a preferred Linux release, that's used primarily on desktop machines, however a lot of people have started using it lately as a web server Operating System as well, because of the stability and protection it supplies. The latter is a direct result the fact that Debian is developed and supported by countless qualified volunteers around the globe, therefore any patch which is necessary to fix a particular issue is released in a few days. The very same community will also help with any question or problem which a user may ever have, since they can be contacted through electronic mail using e-mail lists and a qualified response will be sent in around 15-20 min. The advantage here is that your queries will be responded to by the same people who have developed the Operating System itself and they have a detailed knowledge of how it functions. As Debian is free, you won't have to pay any kind of license fees to use it and you can customize it as much as you want or need. This is valid for the Operating System as well as the 30.000+ software packages that are available for it.
Debian in Dedicated Hosting
You're able to pick the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with a mouse click on our registration page and depending on your choice, we'll set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS on the machine, so that the software that you'll install later will perform in the optimal way. Selecting a server without any Control Panel, you will get Debian and the Apache web server software and you will be able to control everything through a console. A server that is ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel will come with all of the software that you will need for your websites. Though with the latter option the root access is restricted, you are able to manage the server as if it were a shared hosting account, thus you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you have no previous expertise in this kind of hosting service. If you get our Managed Services upgrade, we'll maintain your server and will update its OS weekly to make sure that you have the most recent and most safe edition.
