Ubuntu is a widespread desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server release is getting quite popular too. The reason is that the OS is amazingly light and it will function on almost any hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the fullest. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all Long-Term Support (LTS) releases are supported for at least 5 years, which warrants that you should have a secure and stable software environment on your web hosting server all the time. Also, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities in the world, which means that if you experience any difficulty or have any kind of question, you'll discover a number of resources on the web. One of the basic advantages of this Operating System is that it features numerous software packages which can be easily adjusted in accordance with your needs as well as the requirements of the applications that you need to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any kind of license fees at all. In comparison, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code is not accessible, which means that it cannot be changed.
