To what does the Debian OS owe its worldwide recognition? What has made it the Linux distribution of choice for a lot of server administrators?
Debian is a Linux distribution, which is preffered for desktop machines, yet it has been becoming more popular as a server Operating System during the last few years as well. It is really dependable and secure, due to the fact that fixes are released within a few days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a vast support community, so when you have any kind of questions or troubles with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it features, you can easily contact the developers straight away through e-mail using special e-mail lists and receive a reply in 15-20 minutes. The Debian community provides the best level of support possible, as your questions will be handled by the very same people that made Debian in the first place, so they have an in-depth knowledge of how their own system operates. Since the Operating System is free to use and distribute, no license charges will be added to your hosting fees and you will be able to modify the code files and any other software that you install without restrictions, so as to optimize the software environment for your web sites. Furthermore, Debian performs really well on any hardware, as it is light and quick and doesn't require a lot of memory.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
You'll be able to pick the Debian OS for your new dedicated server with only a click on our order page and according to your choice, we will install the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS on the machine, so that the software that you'll install later will work in the optimal way. Using a server devoid of Control Panel, you will get Debian and the Apache web server software and you are able to manage everything through a console. A server which is obtained with the Hepsia Control Panel will include all the software which you will need for your web sites. Although with the latter option the root access will be limited, you're able to manage the server as if it were a shared hosting account, so that you can take advantage of a dedicated machine even if you don't have previous expertise in this kind of web hosting service. When you purchase our Managed Services upgrade, we'll maintain your server and will update its OS weekly in order to ensure that you have the most recent and most risk-free version.
