To what does the Debian OS owe its reputation? What has made it the Linux distribution of choice for many server administrators?
Debian is an OS which uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually set up on desktop computers, it is being used on a growing number of web servers as well. The reason is that it is really stable, so a server running it won't have to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being one of the most risk-free Operating Systems out there, because security patches are released within days after a problem is found. This is possible since thousands of well-experienced developers are working for the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, in addition, they provide 24/7 support via special mailing lists and respond in twenty minutes to any kind of question. In this light, you'll have 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 releases with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. Since the Operating System is free to use, you'll be able to modify both the core and all of the packages in the way you see fit. Furthermore, you will not need to pay any license fees.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
With each of our dedicated servers, you can get a web hosting powerhouse running Debian in no time. This Operating System is among the choices that you'll get during the registration process and you're able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit release, depending on what software environment your applications need. When you want to have full root access, you will be able to obtain a server without a Control Panel, so you will have more freedom with regard to what you can do with your machine using SSH. In case you have less experience, however you need Debian for a particular piece of software, you're able to acquire the server with our Hepsia Control Panel. Despite the fact that the root access is more limited, you will be able to do anything related to your world wide web content easily through a time and effort saving graphical interface. If you add the optional Managed Services bundle to your dedicated server package, our system administrators will take care of the weekly OS updates. They'll perform many other useful tasks on your behalf too.
