To what does the Debian OS owe its worldwide popularity? What has made it the Linux distribution of choice for a large number of server admins?
Debian is a Linux release, which is widespread for desktop computers, but it's been gaining in popularity as a server Operating System over the last couple of years too. It is really dependable and secure, due to the fact that fixes are released in just a couple of days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a vast support community, so when you have any kind of questions or troubles with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it features, you can contact the developers right away via electronic mail using special e-mail lists and receive a reply in just 15-20 minutes. The Debian community offers the best level of support possible, as all of your questions will be handled by exactly the same people who made Debian in the first place, so they have an exhaustive knowledge of how their system functions. Because the Operating System is free to use and distribute, no license charges will be included with your website hosting fees and you can customize the program code files and any additional software which you install without restrictions, so as to optimize the software environment for your websites. What's more, Debian performs very well on any hardware, as it is light and effective and does not require much memory.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You're able to select the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server with a single click on our registration page and according to 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 right way. Using a server without any Control Panel, you'll receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you're able to manage everything using a console. A server that's obtained with our Hepsia Control Panel will include all the software that you'll need for your Internet sites. Although with the latter option the root access is limited, you will be able to manage the server as if it were a shared hosting account, therefore you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you don't have previous experience with this type of website hosting service. If you get the Managed Services upgrade, we'll maintain your server and will update its OS every week so as to ensure that you have the most current and most safe version.
