What is the best OS for web hosting
I've created a Poll, let's vote and see who wins!
This thread is just for the pooling and voting purpose. However, comments and discussion based on the requirements are always welcome!

Because results are pretty easy to guess :
1.) Centos -> for cPanel users & some Plesk users
2.) Ubuntu -> for all open-source apps available on github + desktop users
3.) Debian -> for users who do not want want ubuntu
4.) Windows -> for users who agree to pay a license to use IISVirtuBox - Hosting, Managed Services & Support

I have voted for CentOS because I find it more easy to manage in a server background. Though it is completely depending on the nature of use and the skillset of the admin. I think we cannot say there's a common good OS but depending on the environment and personals who's going to manage it.cPGuard - cPanel Security Suite - Enhanced Security For Your WordPress/Joomla Websites

I think the most popular will be CentOS and the poll certainly shows that.

CentOs is based on Red Hat backed by a big enterprise. The CentOs has gained much of popularity for serving as server due its security (which came from Red Hat) and totally free. So no doubt its the clear winner.

I think Debian wins out stability. For all other aspects, CentOS is better.
Sometimes I recommend Ubuntu as those who use Linux for their PC are more familiar with it.

The cPanel can be installed on CentOS (version 6 and 7), CloudLinux (version 6 and 7), RHEL (version 6 and 7) or Amazon Linux (All versions).
You can check system requirements here:- https://documentation.cpanel.net/display/68Docs/Installation+Guide+-+System+Requirements
I hope it helps.

I think the poll results are in on this one. CentOS for sure. Latest stable branch of 7x is recommended.
Once you use CentOS you have your pick of control panel.

For multi-user servers (shared hosting), CloudLinux certainly provides unique benefits. For a single user environment, I would choose Ubuntu.

It is free and easy to use = CentOS.

I'd say CentOS. Being free is a great plus but cpanel working on it just makes it a pretty obvious choice for a low cost webhosting company.

The best OS entirely depends on the application you are running.
