To what does the Debian OS owe its worldwide popularity? What has made it the Linux distribution of choice for many server administrators?
Debian is a Linux distribution, which is preffered for desktop machines, yet it's been gaining popularity as a server Operating System during the last few years as well. It is very dependable and risk-free, due to the fact that fixes are released in a few days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a vast support community, so when you have any kind of questions or issues with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it features, you'll be able to contact the developers directly through email using special e-mail lists and receive a reply in 15-20 minutes. The Debian community offers the top level of support possible, because all of your questions will be handled by the very same people that created Debian in the first place, so they have an in-depth knowledge of how their own system operates. Because the Operating System is 100% free to use and distribute, no license costs will be included with your web hosting fees and you can modify the program code files and any other software which you install without restrictions, so as to optimize the software environment for your websites. Furthermore, Debian performs really well on any hardware, as it's light and fast and does not need much memory.
Debian in Dedicated Hosting
You will be able to select the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server
with a mouse click on our registration page and based on your choice, we will install the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition of the OS on the machine, to ensure that the software that you'll install later will perform in the optimal way. Picking a server with no Control Panel, you will get Debian and the Apache web server software and you are able to control everything through a console. A server that is obtained with our Hepsia Control Panel will include all of the software which you'll need for your web sites. Though with the latter option the root access will be limited, you can manage 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 expertise in this kind of hosting service. When you purchase the Managed Services upgrade, we will take care of your server and will update its OS on a weekly basis to make sure that you have the most recent and most risk-free release.
