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 popular Linux distribution, which is used mainly on personal computers, still a lot of people have begun using it lately as a web server OS too, because of the stability and security it supplies. The latter is a direct result the fact that Debian is developed and supported by thousands of qualified volunteers internationally, so any patch that's required to fix some issue is released in a few days. The very same community will also help with any question or issue that a user may ever experience, since they can be contacted via electronic mail using e-mail lists and a competent response will be sent in no more than 15-20 minutes. The advantage here is that your queries will be replied by the same people who have designed the Operating System itself and they have an in-depth knowledge of how it functions. As Debian is provided for free, you will not have to pay any license fees to use it and you'll be able to 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 can choose the Debian Operating System for your new dedicated server with a mouse click on our registration page and depending on your choice, we'll set up 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 work in the optimal way. Using a server devoid of Control Panel, you'll get Debian and the Apache web server software and you are able to manage everything using a console. A server that is ordered with our Hepsia Control Panel will feature all the software which you'll need for your web sites. Even though with the latter option the root access will be limited, you are able to control the server as if it were a shared website hosting account, thus you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you have no previous experience with this kind of website hosting service. If you get the Managed Services upgrade, we will maintain your server and will update its OS every week to ensure that you have the latest and most secure edition.
