To what does the Debian OS owe its global popularity? What has made it the Linux distribution of choice for a lot of server administrators?
Debian is an OS which uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually installed on desktop machines, it's being used on an increasing number of web servers too. The reason is that it's very stable, so a server running it won't need to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being among the most protected Operating Systems to be found, because security patches are released within days after a problem is discovered. This is possible because thousands of experienced developers are part of the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, but they also provide 24/7 support through special e-mail lists and reply within twenty minutes to any question. In this light, you'll obtain top-level support directly from the developers who know their own platform in depth, and not from a third-party support team. Debian is also among the Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. Since the Operating System is completely free to use, you can modify both the core as well as any of the packages in the way you see fit. Also, you won't need to pay any kind of license fees.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
32-bit and 64-bit editions of Debian are available on our dedicated server
order page and you will be able to pick all of them with just a click for your brand new server, depending on what software environment the apps that you wish to use require for top notch performance. You can also select whether our Hepsia Control Panel should be installed on the server or whether it should come with no Control Panel at all. The first option is suitable for less experienced users who want a Debian-powered server, but would like to control it like a shared web hosting account, whereas the second option is suitable for more experienced users who wish to have more control, because ‘no Control Panel' means only Debian and the Apache web server software, but no other software installed on the server at all. We'll also save your time and effort with our Managed Services upgrade, as it features regular Operating System updates, to ensure that you will have a secure and stable Debian installation.
