Debian is a Linux distribution, that's widespread for desktop machines, however it has been gaining in popularity as a server Operating System during the last couple of years too. It is really stable and risk-free, since fixes are released in just a few days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a large support community, so when you have any kind of questions or problems with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it is equipped with, you can easily contact the developers directly through email using special mailing lists and receive a reply within 15-20 min. The Debian community gives you the best level of support possible, because your questions will be handled by exactly the same people that created Debian in the first place, so they have an exhaustive knowledge of how their system functions. Since the Operating System is 100% free to use and distribute, no license costs will be included with your web hosting fees and you will be able to change the code files and any other software which you install without restrictions, to optimize the software environment for your websites. What's more, Debian performs very well on any kind of hardware, because it is light and efficient and doesn't need a lot of memory.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
Each dedicated server that we offer can be installed with Debian and we will test the software environment in depth before we hand over your machine so as to make sure that it will perform flawlessly. You can pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release throughout the sign-up process, so the apps that you install will be able to get the maximum out of your server. We will also keep your Operating System up-to-date when you add the optional Managed Services package to your plan. When you obtain your Debian-driven server without a hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to do anything you like with the machine and you'll have full root-level access, yet you'll have to be more skillful, because all the tasks will be performed using a Secure Shell console. If you get your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will receive a web interface, through which you will be able to manage domains, files, databases, etcetera, and this might be the best option if you are not very experienced, but a specific app that you wish to use requires Debian. You can access your Hepsia-equipped server through SSH too, but the things which you will be able to do are limited.
