To what does the Debian OS owe its popularity? What has made it the Linux distribution of choice for many server admins?
Debian is a Linux release, which is preffered for desktop computers, yet it's been gaining popularity as a server Operating System during the last couple of years as well. It's very dependable and secure, because fixes are released in just a couple of days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a vast support community, so if you have any kind of questions or problems with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it is equipped with, you can contact the developers without delay through e-mail using special mailing lists and receive a reply in just 15-20 min. The Debian community supplies the top level of support possible, because all of your questions will be handled by the very same people who built Debian in the first place, so they have a detailed knowledge of how their own system works. 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 modify the program code files and any other software that you install with no restrictions, in order to optimize the software environment for your websites. What's more, Debian performs really well on any kind of hardware, because it is light and efficient and does not require a lot of memory.
Debian in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Each and every dedicated server that we provide can be set up with Debian and we will test the program environment in depth before we hand over your server in order to make sure that it will perform properly. You will be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release during the signup process, so that the apps which you install will be able to get the maximum out of your server. We will also maintain your OS up-to-date if you add the optional Managed Services package to your plan. When you obtain your Debian-driven server without a hosting Control Panel, you will be able to do anything you like with the machine and you'll have full root-level access, but you'll need to be more skillful, since all the tasks will be performed through a Secure Shell console. If you acquire your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll get a web interface, via which you will be able to manage domains, files, databases, etcetera, and this might be a better option if you are not very experienced, and a particular application that you need to use requires Debian. You have access to your Hepsia-equipped server through SSH too, however the things which you will be able to do will be restricted.
