Ubuntu is a popular desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting pretty popular too. The reason is that the OS is extremely light and it'll run on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also really reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for a minimum of five years, which guarantees that you will have a secure and stable software environment on your website hosting server at all times. Also, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities around the world, which means that if you experience any kind of problem or have any kind of question, you will discover numerous resources on the web. One of the major benefits of this OS is that it contains thousands of software packages which can be freely modified in accordance with your needs and / or the needs of the applications which you need to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees any time. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code isn't accessible, which means that it cannot be changed.
