To what does the Debian OS owe its worldwide popularity? What has made it the Linux distribution of choice for a large number of server admins?
Debian is an Operating System that uses the Linux kernel. Though it is usually set up on desktops, it is being used on a growing number of web servers too. The reason is that it is really stable, so a server running it won't have to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be one of the most risk-free Operating Systems to be found, because security patches are released within days after a problem is discovered. This is possible since 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 mailing lists and respond in 20 min to any question. Thus, 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 the Linux releases with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. As the Operating System costs nothing to use, you're able to modify both the core and all the packages in any way you see fit. In addition, you won't be required to pay any license fees.
Debian in Dedicated Web Hosting
Each and every dedicated server that we supply can be installed with Debian and we will test the software environment thoroughly before we hand over the machine to ensure that it will perform perfectly. You will be able to pick the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release during the sign-up process, so that the apps that you set up 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. If you obtain your Debian-driven server without a web hosting Control Panel, you can do anything you want with your machine and you'll have full root-level access, yet you'll need to be more experienced, since all the tasks will be performed through a Secure Shell console. When you acquire your Debian-driven server with the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, you will have a web interface, via which you will be able to control domains, files, databases, and many others, and this might be the best option when you are not very experienced, and a certain app that you wish to use requires Debian. You will have access to your Hepsia-equipped server via SSH too, however the things that you can do will be limited.
