Read why the Debian Linux distribution is really so favored and the reasons why server admins select it for their machines.
Debian is an Operating System that uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually installed on desktop machines, it's being used on more and more web servers too. The reason is that it is very stable, so a server running it will not need to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be among the most risk-free Operating Systems available, because security patches are released within days after an issue is discovered. This is possible since thousands of qualified developers are working for 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 respond in 20 minutes to any kind of question. In this light, you will enjoy an outstanding level of support directly from the developers who know their own platform in detail, and not from a third-party support team. Debian is also one of several Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. As the Operating System is completely free to use, you'll be able to modify both the core as well as all the packages in the way you see fit. In addition, you will not be required to pay any license fees.
Debian in Dedicated Hosting
Each and every dedicated server that we provide can be installed with Debian and we'll test the program environment carefully before we hand over the machine so as to make sure that it will perform flawlessly. You'll be able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release throughout the registration process, so the applications that you install will be able to get the maximum out of your server. We can also maintain your Operating System up-to-date when you add the optional Managed Services package to your plan. In case you obtain your Debian-driven server without a web hosting Control Panel, you can do anything you want with the machine and you'll have full root-level access, but you will need to be more skillful, because all of the tasks will be performed through a Secure Shell console. If you obtain your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will receive a web interface, via which you can control domains, files, databases, and many others, and this might be a better option when you are not very experienced, but a particular application that you want to use requires Debian. You'll have access to your Hepsia-equipped server through SSH as well, however the things which you're able to do are restricted.
