Based on the servers that you want I would look into Centos and Fedora (Which is basically Redhat) and these are free.

centOS
if you want premium support then Redhat Enterprise

Opinions will vary of course
I too am still new to the Linux world and touched only the surface but from what I heard CentOS is preferred when you don't have the cash to pay for the premium support in RedHat. And since CentOS is based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL).....

You could also give debian a try
If you used Ubuntu before there is also a server edition. Also Ubuntu uses the debian package management system (apt) which to some people is superior the that of centOS or RH

You can grab copies of them and use virtualbox to see which you like more.

CentOS / RedHat are the best.  Stable and reliable.

CentOS may be downloaded from their website.  It is free RedHat but no support.
http://www.centos.org

RedHat can be purchased and they provide support.  

Fedora should not be used for production.  It is more like testing new features for RedHat.  It is not stable.

Are you already familiar with a particular distribution?  If that's the case I would stick with what you know.  Almost any server distribution will be able to do the tasks you need easily.  Being familiar with a particular distribution will make it that much easier to get up and running quickly.

That being said, the CentOS and Fedora suggestions are spot on.  Debian or Ubuntu server will also work well if you prefer the apt system.
