To what does the Debian OS owe its level of popularity? What has made it the Linux distribution of choice for a large number of server admins?
Debian is a Linux distribution, that is preffered for desktop machines, yet it's been gaining popularity as a server Operating System over the last few years too. It is really dependable and protected, since fixes are released in a couple of days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a large support community, so if you have any kind of questions or issues with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it comes with, you'll be able to contact the developers without delay via electronic mail using special e-mail lists and receive a reply within 15-20 minutes. The Debian community provides the top level of support possible, because all your questions will be handled by the same people who created Debian in the first place, so they have a thorough knowledge of how their own system operates. Since the Operating System is free to use and distribute, no license costs will be included with your website hosting fees and you'll be able to modify the code files and any other software that you install with no restrictions, so as to optimize the software environment for your web sites. Furthermore, Debian performs really well on any kind of hardware, as it's light and quick and doesn't need a lot of memory.
Debian in Dedicated Servers Hosting
You will be able to choose the Debian OS for your new dedicated server
with only a mouse click on our registration page and according to your choice, we'll install the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS on your machine, to ensure that the software that you will install later will work in the right way. Choosing a server with no Control Panel, you will get Debian and the Apache web server software and you can manage everything using a console. A server that is ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel will feature all of the software that you'll need for your web sites. Even though with the latter option the root access will be limited, you can control the server as if it were a shared website hosting account, which means that you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you don't have previous experience with this kind of hosting service. When you purchase the Managed Services upgrade, we will maintain your server and will update its OS weekly so as to make sure that you have the most recent and most safe release.
