To what does the Debian OS owe its popularity? What has made it the Linux distribution of choice for countless server admins?
Debian is a Linux release, that is preffered for desktop machines, yet it's been gaining in popularity as a server OS over the last couple of years as well. It is very dependable and risk-free, as fixes are released within a couple of days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a huge support community, so when you have any questions or problems with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it comes with, you can contact the developers immediately through electronic mail using special mailing lists and receive a reply in 15-20 min. The Debian community provides the top level of support possible, as your questions will be handled by the very same people who made Debian in the first place, so they have an in-depth knowledge of how their system operates. Because the Operating System is 100% free to use and distribute, no license costs will be included with your hosting fees and you can modify the program code files and any other software which you install with no restrictions, in order to optimize the software environment for your sites. In addition, Debian performs very well on any kind of hardware, as it's light and effective and doesn't need much memory.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
Each and every dedicated server that we provide can be set up with Debian and we will test the software environment completely before we hand over your server so as to make sure that it will perform perfectly. You're able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release throughout the signup process, so that the apps which you install can get the maximum out of your server. We can also keep your Operating System up-to-date when you add the additional Managed Services package to your plan. If you obtain your Debian-driven server without a website hosting Control Panel, you will be able to do anything you want with the machine and you will have full root-level access, yet you'll need to be more skillful, because all of the tasks will be performed using a Secure Shell console. When you get your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will get a web interface, via which you can manage domains, files, databases, etcetera, and this might be the best option if you aren't very experienced, and a certain app that you intend to use requires Debian. You will have access to your Hepsia-equipped server through SSH as well, but the things that you're able to do are limited.
