To what does the Debian OS owe its level of popularity? What has made it the Linux distribution of choice for a lot of server admins?
Debian is a widespread Linux release, which is used primarily on PC's, however a lot of people have begun using it lately as a web server Operating System too, because of the stability and security it offers. The latter is a result of the fact that Debian is developed and supported by numerous qualified volunteers all around the world, which means that any patch that's needed to fix some issue is released in a couple of days. The very same community can also help you with any question or issue that a user may ever have, due to the fact that they can be contacted via e-mail using mailing lists and a competent response will be sent in around 15-20 minutes. The advantage here is that all of your queries will be answered by the same people who have designed the Operating System itself and they have an in-depth knowledge of how it works. As Debian is free, you will not have to pay any kind of license fees to use it and you can customize it as much as you want or need. This is valid for both the Operating System as well as the 30.000+ software packages that are readily available for it.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You are able to choose the Debian OS for your new dedicated server
with a mouse click on our registration page and depending on your choice, we will install the 32-bit or the 64-bit release of the OS on your machine, so that the software that you'll install later will perform in the best way. Using a server with no Control Panel, you'll receive Debian and the Apache web server software and you'll be able to manage everything through a console. A server that's acquired with the Hepsia Control Panel will include all the software that you will need for your Internet sites. Though with the latter option the root access will be restricted, you'll be able to control the server as if it were a shared hosting account, which means that you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you do not have previous experience with this type of hosting service. When you order our Managed Services upgrade, we will take care of your server and will update its OS on a weekly basis to ensure that you have the latest and most safe version.
