Ok, maybe someone here can give a right answer: which of multiple linux distros are best choice to be a default system in WWW server build? Of course based on your own experiences with it. Which one can you recommend for a similar website: https://zoptamo.com/s-zumba-c-us-coach (but with muuuch smaller amount of data and less moving objects)

Honestly... take your pick. I use Ubuntu server for a small web server for an NFL pick 'em site. Any stable version of Linux server will work fine for hosting a web server. I prefer Debian distros (mostly Ubuntu), but a CentOS server would be very stable for a web server as well.

Though centOS isnt too bad either.

+1! :thumbup2:

 

Many may not realize it, if there were no Debian, Ubuntu & many other distros wouldn't exist. Debian is the granddaddy of most popular Linux distros. :)
