To what does the Debian OS owe its popularity? What has made it the Linux distribution of choice for countless server administrators?
Debian is a Linux release, that is widely used for desktop computers, but it's been becoming more popular as a server OS during the last few years as well. It's really stable and risk-free, since fixes are released within a couple of days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a vast support community, so when you have any questions or troubles with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it is equipped with, you are able to contact the developers straight away through email using special mailing lists and receive a response in 15-20 minutes. The Debian community provides the best level of support possible, since all your questions will be handled by exactly the same people that made Debian in the first place, so they have an in-depth knowledge of how their own system works. As the Operating System is free to use and distribute, no license costs will be added to your web hosting fees and you'll be able to change the code files and any additional software that you install without any restrictions, to optimize the software environment for your Internet sites. In addition, Debian performs very well on any hardware, because it is light and quick and doesn't require a lot of memory.
Debian in VPS Servers
You'll be able to select the Debian Operating System with each VPS server
plan that we provide. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the OS are among the options that you will find on the order page, which means that you can select the one that is more suitable for the software that you'd like to install and run later. A Debian-powered VPS can be set up either without any Control Panel or with our custom Hepsia Control Panel. In the first case, you'll have more freedom, due to the fact that you will have full root access and you can take advantage of the advantages and the full functionality offered by Debian. In the second case, the root access will be restricted, but you'll be able to manage your world wide web content through a web interface, not a console. In case you do not have a lot of time to maintain your Debian-powered server, or in case you do not have a lot of experience, you're able to add the Managed Services upgrade to your package and our admins will take care of the regular OS updates.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
Each and every dedicated server
that we offer can be installed with Debian and we will test the program environment in detail before we hand over your server so as to ensure that it will perform appropriately. You will be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian version during the sign-up process, so the apps that you set up can get the maximum out of your server. We will also keep your Operating System up-to-date if you add the optional Managed Services package to your plan. If you acquire your Debian-driven server without a web hosting Control Panel, you will be able to do anything you want with the machine and you will have full root-level access, but you'll need to be more experienced, since all the tasks will be performed using a Secure Shell console. When you get your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you'll get a web interface, via which you will be able to manage domains, files, databases, and many others, and this might be a better option in case you are not very experienced, but a certain application which you want to use requires Debian. You can access your Hepsia-equipped server through SSH too, however the things that you'll be able to do will be restricted.
