Which one do you use ?
I use Centos to install cPanel, Directadmin, Vestacp, Centos web panel, webmin..etc

I use Debian to install Plesk Onyx

Which do you prefer.
I prefer Centos because it is more popular and supported better by community.

I would like to know advantages and disadvantages of both.
Each one serves for which you will run on it, as said above, so I think it is hard to compare advantages and disadvantages between them.

Just my 0.000002 cents!

CentOs all the time :)
I always choose Centos when I am setting up a new server because I know I only install control panels that only work it.

If you are looking for the cPanel server then you will need to go with CentOS.

Well, I am getting a lot of for CentOS so I will look forward using that one.
Community support with it looks great, according to replies and that is something we are looking for.
cPanel will be on, so as you said, I will have to go with it.

CentOS has become an industry standard for web hosting. Debian is a great OS, but it is important what do you plan to use it for. they have Linux Containers (LXC) for example, which are good for web development environment and for Virtual Servers.

CentOS is more popular among our clients - it's stable, has a huge community and the last but not the least cPanel is available for CentOS/RedHat/CloudLinux only.

You will get more vote for CentOS for sure.....but you may find many veterans out there who just love debian distros. So its basically how you are trained with the systems. My personal favourite is CentOS/RHEL because I am trained in that; but for my laptop I used to use Ubuntu and just love to work with debian distros as well when needed.

Toss another vote in for CentOS. Not only does it support the vast majority of control panels (cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, Interworx etc etc) but they generally provide you a very long shelf life. CentOS 7 doesn't go EOL till 2024.

For webhosting business, I prefer Centos as most of the paid and non paid control panels are providing support for the same and Debian on the other hand is very good in setting up custom setups , non control panel servers and I always suggest Debian/Ubuntu for Custom Setup which do not plan to have any control panel.

I like both depending on the usage of the OS
