To what does the Debian OS owe its recognition? What has made it the Linux distribution of choice for a lot of server admins?
Debian is an OS that uses the Linux kernel. Although it is usually set up on desktop computers, it's being used on an increasing number of web servers as well. The reason is that it's really stable, so a server running it won't need to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be among the most safe Operating Systems to be found, as security patches are released within days after a problem is discovered. This is possible because thousands of well-experienced developers are employed by the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, but they also provide 24/7 support via special mailing lists and reply within 20 minutes to any question. In this light, you'll receive top-level 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 - more than 30,000. Since the Operating System is absolutely free to use, you will be able to modify both the core as well as any of the packages in the way you see fit. Furthermore, you won't need to pay any kind of license fees.
Debian in VPS Web Hosting
You can acquire a Debian-powered virtual private server
with any of our VPS plans and you will be able to choose if the version that will be installed throughout the server setup process will be 32-bit or 64-bit. Thus, you'll ensure that the software environment will meet the system requirements of the apps which you wish to run and that the latter will function properly. Throughout the order process, you may also decide if the VPS will come with the Hepsia Control Panel or without any Control Panel at all. The first option gives you a user-friendly graphical interface, via which you're able to control everything related to your world wide web presence using only a web browser - files, emails, databases, and the like. Without a Control Panel at hand, you'll need to do everything through a console, but you will have full root access and you will be able to set up any software that may not be supported by Hepsia. You can also add our optional Managed Services package, that includes weekly Operating System updates.
Debian in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Each dedicated server
that we offer can be set up with Debian and we will test the software environment thoroughly before we hand over the machine to ensure that it'll perform appropriately. You are able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release during the registration process, so that the applications which you set up will be able to get the maximum out of your server. We will also keep your OS up-to-date when you add the additional Managed Services package to your plan. In case you acquire your Debian-driven server without a website hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to do anything you want with the machine and you'll have full root-level access, yet you'll need to be more experienced, as all the tasks will be performed through a Secure Shell console. If you acquire your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will get a web interface, through which you'll be able to control domains, files, databases, and many others, and this might be a better option in case you aren't very experienced, and a particular app which you wish to use requires Debian. You have access to your Hepsia-equipped server through SSH too, yet the things that you're able to do will be limited.
