Debian is a Linux distribution, which is widely used for desktop machines, however it has been gaining popularity as a server Operating System over the last couple of years as well. It's very stable and safe, since fixes are released within a few days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a vast support community, so when you have any questions or troubles with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it comes with, you're able to contact the developers immediately via electronic mail using special e-mail lists and receive a response in just 15-20 minutes. The Debian community supplies the top level of support possible, as all your questions will be handled by exactly the same people that built Debian in the first place, so they have a detailed knowledge of how their own system functions. As the Operating System is 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 additional software that you install with no restrictions, to optimize the software environment for your sites. What's more, Debian performs really well on any hardware, because it's light and fast and doesn't need a lot of memory.
Debian in VPS Servers
You will be able to pick the Debian Operating System with each and every VPS server plan that we supply. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are some of the options that you can find on the order page, which means that you can pick the one that will be more suitable for the software that you need to set up and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be installed either without any Control Panel or with our custom Hepsia Control Panel.
