To what does the Debian OS owe its worldwide recognition? What has made it the Linux distribution of choice for a large number of server administrators?
Debian is a Linux distribution, which is widely used for desktop computers, yet it has been gaining in popularity as a server OS over the last few years as well. It's really dependable and secure, since fixes are released in a couple of days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a large support community, so if you have any questions or problems with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it includes, you'll be able to contact the developers directly via email using special e-mail lists and receive a reply in 15-20 min. The Debian community supplies the best level of support possible, since 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 functions. Because the Operating System is free to use and distribute, no license charges will be added to your hosting fees and you'll be able to modify the code files and any additional software that you install without restrictions, in order to optimize the software environment for your sites. What's more, Debian performs really well on any hardware, as it is light and quick and doesn't need much memory.
Debian in VPS Servers
You can acquire a Debian-powered VPS server
with all of our VPS packages and you can choose if the version which will be installed throughout the server setup process should be 32-bit or 64-bit. In this way, you can ensure that the software environment will meet the requirements of the apps which you need to run and that the latter will run appropriately. During the order process, you may also choose if the VPS will come with the Hepsia Control Panel or without Control Panel at all. The first option will give you an easy to navigate graphical interface, via which you will be able to control everything related to your world wide web presence using only an Internet browser - files, e-mail accounts, databases, and so on. With no Control Panel at hand, you'll need to do everything through a console, but you'll have full root access and you'll be able to install any software that may not be compatible with Hepsia. You can also add the optional Managed Services package, which includes regular Operating System updates.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
Each and every dedicated server
that we provide can be installed with Debian and we'll test the program environment thoroughly before we hand over your machine in order to ensure that it'll perform properly. You are able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release during the signup process, so that the apps which you set up can get the maximum out of your server. We will also keep your Operating System up-to-date when you add the additional Managed Services package to your plan. In case you get your Debian-driven server without a web hosting Control Panel, you will be able to do anything you like with the machine and you'll have full root-level access, yet you will need to be more skillful, as all the tasks will be performed using a Secure Shell console. When you get your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you will receive a web interface, via which you can control domains, files, databases, etcetera, and this might be the best option in case you aren't very experienced, and a specific application that you intend to use requires Debian. You have access to your Hepsia-equipped server through SSH as well, however the things that you'll be able to do are restricted.
