To what does the Debian OS owe its popularity? What has made it the Linux distribution of choice for a lot of server admins?
Debian is a preferred Linux distribution, that's used mainly on desktop computers, but many people have started using it lately as a web server OS too, because of the stability and security it supplies. The latter is a consequence of the fact that Debian is developed and supported by numerous qualified volunteers worldwide, which means that any patch that is required to fix a certain issue is released in a couple of days. The same community can also help with any question or problem which a user may ever have, since they can be contacted through email using mailing lists and a qualified response will be sent in around 15-20 min. The advantage here is that all of your questions will be replied by the same people who have designed the Operating System itself and they have a detailed knowledge of how it works. As Debian is free, you won't have to pay any license fees to use it and you can personalize it as much as you want or need. This is valid for both the Operating System as well as the 30.000+ software packages that are available for it.
Debian in VPS Servers
If you need a server running Debian, you can opt for any of the VPS server
plans that we supply and choose this Operating System on the order page. You'll be able to choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit Debian release, because we give you the option to pick the more appropriate one, based on the software which you wish to install on your server once it's set up. In case you're more tech-savvy, you may get a Debian-powered VPS without a Control Panel, so you'll have full root access and you are able to manage the content and the software through SSH. In case you are less experienced, but you would like to use an app that requires Debian, you are able to pick our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel on the order page and you'll be able to manage the whole server like a standard shared hosting account. In addition, you can benefit from the optional Managed Services upgrade that we supply, as it includes once a week Operating System updates done by our admins, among other useful things.
