Debian is an OS that uses the Linux kernel. Even though it is usually installed on desktop computers, it is being used on more and more web servers as well. The reason is that it is very stable, so a server running it will not have to be restarted for months. Debian is also considered to be one of the most protected Operating Systems to choose from, since security patches are released within days after an issue is discovered. This is possible because thousands of well-trained developers are part of the Debian project on a voluntary basis and not only do they work on the OS itself, but they also provide 24/7 support via special mailing lists and respond in twenty minutes to any kind of question. Thus, you will have top-notch support directly from the developers who know their own platform in detail, and not from a third-party support team. Debian is also among the Linux distributions with the highest number of packages - more than 30,000. Since the Operating System is absolutely free to use, you're able to modify both the core and all of the packages in any way you see fit. Furthermore, you won't need to pay any kind of license fees.
