Ubuntu is a widely used desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, and its server edition is getting very popular too. The reason is the fact that the operating system is very light and it will run on almost any hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also very reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for a minimum of 5 years, which guarantees that you should have a protected and stable software environment on your web hosting server at all times. Also, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities globally, which means that if you experience any kind of problem or have any kind of question, you'll find numerous resources on the net. One of the main benefits of this Operating System is that it comes with a large number of software packages which can be easily modified according to your needs as well as the needs of the apps that you'd like to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees any time. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their code isn't accessible, which means that it can't be changed.
