Ubuntu is a well known desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, and its server edition is getting really popular too. The reason is that the operating system is extremely light and it'll run on almost any kind of hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which warrants that you should have a protected and dependable software environment on your website hosting server all the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities on earth, 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 key advantages of this OS is the fact that it contains a great number of software packages which can be freely changed according to your needs and / or the requirements of the applications which you need to run, not to mention that you will not have to pay any kind of license fees any time. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their program code isn't accessible, therefore it can't be changed.
