To what does the Debian OS owe its recognition? What has made it the Linux distribution of choice for a large number of server administrators?
Debian is an Operating System that uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually set up on desktops, it's being used on an increasing number of web servers too. The reason is that it is very stable, so a server running it will not have to be restarted for months. Debian is also regarded as being one of the most risk-free Operating Systems to choose from, since security patches are released within days after an issue is discovered. This is possible because thousands of well-experienced developers work for the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, they also provide 24/7 support via special e-mail lists and reply within twenty minutes to any question. Thus, you'll obtain top-notch support directly from the developers who know their own platform in depth, and not from a third-party support team. Debian is also one of the Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - over 30,000. As the Operating System costs nothing to use, you're able to modify both the core and all the packages in the way you see fit. In addition, you will not need to pay any license fees.
Debian in Dedicated Servers
Each dedicated server that we supply can be set up with Debian and we'll test the program environment carefully before we hand over your machine so as to make sure that it'll perform appropriately. You will be able to select the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release throughout the sign-up process, so the apps which you install can get the maximum out of your server. We can also keep your OS up-to-date if you add the additional Managed Services package to your plan. If you obtain your Debian-driven server without a hosting Control Panel, you'll be able to do anything you like with the machine and you'll have full root-level access, however you'll have to be more experienced, because all the tasks will be performed using a Secure Shell console. When you acquire your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, you will get a web interface, via which you'll be able to manage domains, files, databases, etc, and this might be a better option when you aren't very experienced, and a specific app that you wish to use requires Debian. You will have access to your Hepsia-equipped server through SSH as well, however the things that you're able to do will be limited.
