Debian is a Linux release, which is widely used for desktop machines, however it’s been gaining in popularity as a server OS over the last few years as well. It’s very stable and risk-free, because fixes are released in just a few days after an issue is discovered. Debian has a large support community, so if you have any kind of questions or troubles with the OS or with some of the 30,000+ packages it is equipped with, you can contact the developers directly via email using special mailing lists and receive a reply in just 15-20 min. The Debian community supplies the top level of support possible, as your questions will be handled by the very same people that built Debian in the first place, so they have a thorough knowledge of how their own system functions. Because the Operating System is free to use and distribute, no license costs will be included with your website hosting fees and you will be able to customize the code files and any other software that you install without restrictions, so as to optimize the software environment for your websites. What’s more, Debian performs really well on any hardware, as it is light and fast and doesn’t require much memory.
