I have a serie of one variable data, and I want to find the best distribution that fits it.

It is a common problem, so there must be some online, but the ones I found only accept a small number of samples (I have more than 500 samples).

Do you know any good website?

Wolframalpha doesn't works for large sets (it requires payment).

    $\begingroup$ Take a random sample from your 500 samples and put that into a tool that accepts a small number of samples $\endgroup$ – samerivertwice Sep 1 '17 at 16:32
  • $\begingroup$ Might be useful to readers if you linked to some of the ones you did find, and/or explain exactly what you did with Wolfram alpha. $\endgroup$ – PM. Sep 1 '17 at 16:38
  • $\begingroup$ R statistical software, which is free, has a Library devoted to distribution identification. I have not used it, but have been told it works well. Minitab, which is not free, but for which some universities have a sytenwide license, has a distribution ID item on the STAT > Quality tools menu. I have found it useful. $\endgroup$ – BruceET Sep 2 '17 at 1:36
