I am planning to buy a new VPS from DigitalOcean. The following is the configuration:
KVM Virtualization, 512MB , 1 CORE CPU, 20GB SSD Disk, 1TB Transfer, Debian 7.0.
Digital Ocean said that I can install 64-bit Debian in this VPS. But what do you suggest in the case of a VPS ?

So I was thinking why can't I go for a Wheezy 64-bit.There is no significant benefit for a 64-bit system with 2G of ram. There may even be disadvantages due to the increased memory use of 64-bit programs. (Pointers to data are all twice as large. Many 64-bit programs use more memory than their 32-bit programs.) With only 2G of memory I would stick with a 32-bit system. Bob
