To what does the Debian OS owe its popularity? What has made it the Linux distribution of choice for a lot of server admins?
Debian is a Linux distribution, that is widely used for desktop machines, yet it's been gaining popularity as a server OS during the last couple of years too. It is very stable and secure, as fixes are released within a few days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a vast support community, so if you have any questions or issues with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it is equipped with, you can easily contact the developers right away via e-mail using special e-mail lists and receive a reply in just 15-20 min. The Debian community provides the top level of support possible, since all of your questions will be handled by the same people that built Debian in the first place, so they have a thorough knowledge of how their system works. Because the Operating System is free to use and distribute, no license costs will be included with your website hosting fees and you will be able to customize the program code files and any additional software that you install without any restrictions, to optimize the software environment for your web sites. Furthermore, Debian performs really well on any hardware, as it's light and effective and doesn't require a lot of memory.
Debian in Dedicated Web Hosting
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 in order to ensure that it will perform flawlessly. You're able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version throughout the registration process, so that the applications that you set up will be able to get the maximum out of your server. We will also keep your OS up-to-date if you add the additional Managed Services package to your plan. When you get your Debian-driven server without a hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to do anything you want with your machine and you will have full root-level access, however you'll have to be more skillful, as all of the tasks will be performed using a Secure Shell console. If you acquire your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will have a web interface, via which you can control domains, files, databases, etc, and this might be a better option when you are not very experienced, but a specific app which you would like to use requires Debian. You will have access to your Hepsia-equipped server through SSH too, yet the things that you'll be able to do are limited.
