Debian is a Linux release, that is widely used for desktop computers, however it's been becoming more popular as a server Operating System over the last few years too. It is very stable and risk-free, since fixes are released in just a couple of days after a problem is discovered. Debian has a vast support community, so when you have any kind of questions or issues with the OS or with any of the 30,000+ packages it features, you're able to contact the developers without delay via electronic mail using special e-mail lists and receive a response within 15-20 minutes. The Debian community gives you the top level of support possible, since your questions will be handled by exactly the same people that made Debian in the first place, so they have an in-depth knowledge of how their system operates. Because the Operating System is 100% free to use and distribute, no license charges will be included with your web hosting fees and you'll be able to change the code files and any additional software which you install without restrictions, in order to optimize the software environment for your Internet sites. In addition, Debian performs really well on any kind of hardware, as it is light and efficient and doesn't require a lot of memory.
