Is Debian the right choice for your web server?

09/20/2012 | Internet hosting |

Choosing an operating system on which to run web hosting is one of the most important decisions you need to make when you have secured dedicated servers to use as a platform. There are a range of options available, with Windows and Linux the first main choice for users. But within Linux, there are several options to choose from, such as CentOS and Ubuntu, that have proved popular with website owners.
 

However, one platform offered by SnelServer.com that could be especially useful for this purpose is Debian Linux. According to figures from W3 Techs, this was the most popular Linux distribution for web servers at the start of the year, used on almost 30% of Linux-based sites, amounting to 9.6% of all websites.The research firm also noted it was the fastest growing operating system with 54 of the top one million websites switching to the platform every day. So what is it about the operating system that has made it so popular? For starters, the open-source platform is completely free to use, unlike some other systems that require expensive licences.
 

It also has many similar features to an Ubuntu Linux server and is intended to provide a high degree of stability and be extremely simple to use. However, the packaging system used in Debian enables a user to very easily upgrade their server to the latest version. There is also a wide range of software packages available for Debian servers, with over 29,000 different applications available. Debian observed these allow users to complete almost any task they can imagine using the operating system, "from editing documents to running a business to playing games to writing more software".
 

Also, Debian Linux can provide better speeds and more flexibility when compared to other operating systems, as it is based on GNU/Linux. At SnelServer.com, you can install the Debian product edition of your choice on to your dedicated server, while instant setup ensures you can get started in a matter of minutes.
